Well this sorta ties in with various threads ... somewhat related to the recent paper modeling topics ... and we've seen the really neat cobblestones that UK Karl carved into foam recently.

This one is well worth a look ... outstanding modeling ... cheap materials ... and lots of good step-by-step photos and notes:

PS -- A lot of the items are in 1/72 scale (just a bit bigger than HO) ... so techniques are applicable to a variety of scales that we commonly (or uncommonly) use here!

Have fun!

Great link, Dallas.

The guy is a painstaking and wonderful modeller...

But, as is also the case with Homasote and Hydrocal and Pliobond, one cannot find Featherboard anywhere here in Oz....

Oh well.........

Hi Guys:

Extremely well done models. I really like what this modeler has accomplished with foam board. He should be very proud of his work.

Emmanuel has been publishing articles in two British magazines for a few years now so much of what is shown on the County Gate website is " Old Hat" to some of us. If any of you have access to the January and February issues of Continental Modeller and or the January issue of Military Modelling you will find his latest articles . There are also a couple of articles by him on the Military Modelling website . These have been talked about on this forum sometime ago .
There is also a sub-album of some of Emmanuel's earlier work in Franck Tavernier's Photobucket picture album .

Happy viewing

Hi Dallas & others

As was mentioned CM carried a number of Emmanuel's articles. Bear in mind that he is an artist with an exceptional talent to model such detail. For me his hollow core clay bricks keep on amazing me.
