Lineside Allotments

Postby TEZBEDZ » Tue Nov 13, 2012 2:54 pm

I have had some fun over the last two weeks, building and planting three allotments on my model of Llanfyllin. I have no photographs of this area to be modelled and only know that allotment were situated in this location from an old OS Map. So my imagination has been fairly free to roam.

I have 3 allotments with assorted vegetables, potatoes, onions runner beans and assorted rows of smaller veg. I have also modelled a cold frame, a shed, some rhubarb and an anorexic Pavarotti look alike scarecrow. (made from a brass tube crucifix, tissue paper clothing and a milliput head & hat).

Whilst chopping rice grains for onions, I thought a whole rice grain would make a good marrow, so I have marrows, but, now need to make a marrow plant, (big green leaves)

It has been a fun break from trying to copy actual buildings from photos and hopefully will look good once the scenery in front of it is completes
Regards

And why not have some fun....

I would comment that make sure the plants you model would all be there at the same time.

On my model gardens, I chose early May, made them a lot easier to model...

Apart from the runner beans, Rhubarb and Marrows (if I model them) oh and possibly the spuds, they are all pretty generic.

And use some appropriate fencing for the period - corrugated seemed to be favourite in the 50's.
