In my previous post I built the main structure of the the Wizards Tower. This time I am starting to add a little detail.
I have used some spruce strips, they are stronger and more durable than balsawood, however balsa would be a good alternative. I will need several ladders, and these can be tricky to make. I used two square section spruce strips for the sides and then cut the rungs from thin bamboo strips that I got from an old bamboo window blind.
The roof is not finished yet, I have more strips to add and then some tiles to add on top of that.
I used flat spruce strips for the floor of the bridge, and then built up the sides and supports.
I have also added some spruce joists to the underside of the floors in the tower.
I wanted to have some damage to the bridge, however it is quite high on the model and I didn't want figures falling off and ruining their paintwork so the simplest thing was to only have a small break in the hand rail!
The other side of the tower, I wanted to have a different style of bridge. This one will be a stone arched bridge.
I have used 5mm foam core for this.
