28mm Mogadishu buildings ready for Hammerhead show

Decided to revamp all my old Mogadishu buildings plus create more for the game at the Hammerhead show this year, here is the first one i created, i have a playstation 4 and was gaming a titled named "Dying Light" the buildings in the game are fantasic and this is where i got my idea from.

Had a picture in my head no plans and took two days to create, its 28mm and is good enough to put on the tabletop, five floor hotel is next on the cards.

All foamboard, clay in bits and texture sand, cardboard for shutters

Again top is cardboard, bits of balsa and everything is glued together with Bostik, i think PVA glue for me is not as used as much anymore, Bostik is the way forward as it sets quickly.

"Dying Light " steel blue door, air conditioner, is balsa wood and placed around a square foamboard, oven grill is the mesh, lollypop stick for the boarded up inside window

Again the top corrugated cardboard,i did used PVA glue on these, what i did i gave it a support of cardboard underneath to give it strenght, just used scissors to cut it up and give it the damaged look.

The front again, i liked the idea of the shutters slightly tilted giving it that crappy look that its needs forcing to lift it up.

From the side, plenty of cover for the "Skinnys" thinking of adding smoke coming out of the air conditioner, could be a place for "Mr White and Jess" lets get cooking.
