Any chance of 6 and 15mm ?

I think Red Vectors have something similar in 15mm already.


I've been struggling for Indian Buildings, and think the 2 larger African/Afghan buildings will do the trick nicely.

As mentioned above, 6mm is tricky as the thickness of the MDF starts to affect the design of the building.  The 15mm ones are already on the site here: https://www.pendraken.co.uk/afghanafrican-955-c.asp

Interesting . . .

How tall are the single-storey buildings (bottom two, 1st picture)? And the height of the doorways, please?

The doors are around 12mm height so a 10mm figure on a base would need to duck his head slightly...!

Point about MDF thickness in 6 is taken...

Good luck with these, I really mean it.

But . . .

Honestly, these are just about the easiest things you can make yourself. Here's mine, after a couple of leisurely evenings work. Made out of cereal packet cardboard, and following Matakishi's ideas.

LOL. That's why I cut on a 4mm grid. All the angles are at 90°, and measuring is so simple.

And obviously, the excellent larger buildings will involve a lot more work.

My cutting mat is buried under my laptop, and my time for proper prep is nonexistant so it's bodge and go :D
