Latest update for my Khartoum build...
previous post here
I have now finished the ground work for 16 tiles - thats a lot flagstones ! But it is starting to look good - the palm trees have just been plonked down on these photos - going to need some attention
Up next will be to finish up these buildings - add a few bits and bobs and some more colour
Of course if you are going to build an islamic city you are going to need some Minarets and to be frank I was looking for inspiration and an idea popped into my head - those moroccan tea lamps would be perfect...
Off to the poundshop and ebay
Add the lamp to a tower, remove the glass, and cover up all the fancy stars.. leaving you something like this
The thinner minaret is also a lamp and needs nmore work before completion & painting
I think they look suitably Arabic
Finally I made the plunge and bought three kits from Sarissa last week - their two souk buildings and the Embassy building. These were dead easy to assemble and will be the final buildings to complete in this project.
Until next time
