Hello,

I have started a try to make brick walls with single bricks.

In the first picture you see a first try.
I have printed linies on a paper and clued the bricks along the linie.


In this picture I clued the bricks directly om MDF-woodsheet.
The joints between the bricks I grouted with dry fine quartz sand, cleaned the bricks with a brush and fixed the sand in the joints with matt clear Vallejo-color.


The finally step is to build 3D-brick walls.
Here a first test.




More info about this work the next days.

cheers
Kalle

Very nice work Kalle.

Those bricks look like what I purchased from David at http://www.modelrailstructures.com 

If they are the same, I found them excellent to work with.

Good show, keep us posted on your other attempts and also on the finished products. :thumb:

Hello Will,

for testing I have made my own bricks with my CNC milling machine.

For the main work I want to use real bricks from
http://www.miniaturziegel.de/Ziegel.xhtml

These bricks made with real clay and have the right color.

cheers
Kalle

The bricks look great but building anything large would take a lot of work.

Bricks look very good Kalle.

You have the start of a great brick road there, don't forget to paint it yellow.... "Follow the yellow brick road...":D

Here some more pictures of my new growing loco-shelter












This is the maximum hight of the brick walls.
Above the brick walls I build the rest of the shelter with wood parts.:D

cheers
Kalle
