This is my first post here on this forum, so let me introduce myself first!
My name is Rob, 45 years young and I live in the Hague in the Netherlands.
My biggest hobby is modeling 1/16 scale radio controlled tanks.
I've visited a lot of modeling shows and fairs, and so I came in contact with Fredericus Rex, and I always loved his stuff.
Then I found the love of my live, my girlfriend Cordula, who became interested in modeling as well.
So, when visiting a show together, we bought 2 of Fredericus Rex his houses from the Medieval time.
One thing lead to another, and now we're making a big Medieval city, placed on a photoframe, 70cm X 50cm's!
Here are a few photo's:
And the inside of the Gate house:
As this is our first project together, we're still in the learning progress, but we have lot's of fun building and painting.
We are working on it now for about 9 months or so.
Cordula does most of the figure painting, while I do the building and painting of the soldiers.
Now we gonna finish the walls first, (the short wall and corner tower are already glued in position) and when the Gate house is finished I'll glue the other parts of the wall in p osition, and then paint them and blend them in together.
The houses, well and punishing thing ( I forgot the name) are not in position as we still need some houses to finish (Stadthaus) and buy! If you have any suggestion for houses, other then Fredericus Rex, let us know!
Also I would like to know what the difference is between 1/72 and 28mm?
At the mirliton website are a few accessories that we could use (Candleholders and plates with food and so on) but I don't wanna waste money when the are way out of scale!
So, if you have any comments and tips, don't be afraid to share them, as we would like to improve our skills!
