I’m going to start with the buildings. Getting this right will be the key. But there is a significant problem…

I’ve taken a look around the internet and I cannot find 15mm scaled Italian buildings, at least none that look decent. I’ve found some Spanish/Mediterranean pieces which look ok, but really look more Spanish rather than Italian.

This presents a problem as no buildings, no hill village.

I think I have two options, I can repurpose buildings already available on the market and make them look Italian or design my own.

On the plus side, during the spring clean challenge, I found a plastic sheet designed for the model railway community. One side of the sheet is moulded to look similar to the roof tiles you find in Italy. This is at least a start although it’s not exactly right. I may need to revisit this at a later date….

The options for designing my own buildings:

  • Scratch build them
  • Use mdf
  • Use CAD and 3d print them

Of the above, I think mdf would be the easiest option to try. I don’t have a 3d printer and my skills to scratch build are non-existent.
