The "Red Baron Inn" WIP

Hi there! After a long brake I have found some hobby time... And somehow I found myself with a wargames building project. This is my first attempt at making a building from scratch, and here's some pics of how I'm doing.

Started out with some drawings... The one on the right is my remote goal for the "Red Baron Inn"

Starting out with kapa board... Floor is measured for 25mm squares, if the building is used for RPG purposes at some point. (Pathfinder and stuff)

I cutted out the lines with carpet knife. And made some extra "cracks" to give the floor some feeling.

Here's the floor painted. I splattered some thinned black paint on the floor tiles as a last stage.

I cuttet out the walls... Just fits :)

Next I planned out the wall with a door


Ok... Making windows here. I cutted some cardboard of the size of the windows... and some small pieces of wire mesh of the same size.

I wanted the windows to look warm and yellow from the outside, like there was a fire place in the tavern (and there will be)... And  from  the inside it would look like a night view from the windows...

Here's the mesh glued to the painted cardboard.

Inside wall, with a door made out of balsa, and three mesh windows in place. I framed the windows with stripes of balsa too. Then some glue and sand on the walls.

After painting... Here's the first inside wall of the " Red Baron"

Three more walls to go, and then it's upstairs turn... More to come soon I hope ;)
