Bricks!
« on: January 26, 2010, 10:37:21 PM »
I note that somebody on e-bay selling parts to construct dolls houses, sells 1:24 bricks.  About £15 / 1,000.

Has anyone tried using these?  I imagine it could be difficult to keep the structure straight - much like the real thing - unless they are just cosmetic over a plywood(?) structure.

The bricks I used were 1:19 scale. The "former" is exterior grade plywood and the bricks pushed onto it using silicone glue. Swimming pool grade grout provided the "mortar" that filled the gaps and then I used masonry paint on the exterior.

Check out Richard Stacey for a range 1:24 architectural components.
Some very nice examples of large scale (mainly 1:12) building construction on his website.
1:24 price list here.

Might be a potential speaker / demonstration for a Southern Group meeting next winter?
