Sheds and Dogs, not a Brit Pop Album

After finishing the Cold Frame from Petite Properties I have also finished the Potting Shed from them. Now it is a good size shed being a 1/48th scale building and it measures up very well to a 28mm scale figure. Now this is actually made from 2mm card and comes collect with glass, okay thin plastic, for the windows and glass in the door and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I have painted it in the traditional green colour with cream windows, door and roof frame. The roof I made it to be like tarpaulin draped over it by using toilet tissue, soak in PVA glue and then paint black and drybrushed black-grey and then grey. I think it looks rather nice and looks like tarp. Anyway here are some pictures of it.






Also I got some dogs from Warbases at Salute as they look okay and serviceable and decided to paint them up for Partizan in the Park and gosh I was wrong. The first one I painted was the bulldog and once a lick of paint went in it it came to life. It is a very nice little sculpt and has quite a character to it's nice sitting pose.
Next up was the pack of dogs then, they are they are collies and I thought that they look like generic dogs. But again, POW, once a lick of paint was on them they too came to life. I have painted three as border collies, two dark and white and one tan and white and as a red setter.

Both of these packs are wonderful, rather cheap and look the part, most importantly. Now we need to tell Martin at Wasbases that a fox and hounds pack would be a seller.

Here's some pictures.





Thanks for looking

  1. There is something very British about a man and his shed. Also something terribly British about a man and his dog! A Very British Civil Shed!
