Art Deco Corner Ruins: the first set

Well, I have finally got the first set of art deco corner ruins tested and completed. These are all made from a core of MDF covered with layers of cardboard to give them depth and details

Model BVM1 - a single level ruin

Model BVM2 - a two level ruin

BMV3 - a two level ruin

Model BVM4 - a three level ruin

Here's a back shot of BVM4 so that you can see the interior detailing and the levels. All the pieces have these same interior architectural elements. 

The first floor is just over 3" off the ground (80mm). The other two floors are sligthly less - 65mm - but there is more than enough room to get hands in and move models about.

All these corners come from a single master file that has a fully detailed front and side.

The front has three large door openings and the side has only one plus two windows.

The idea here is that you can use them on their own or you can place them on the corners of a large 12" square.

Each piece has a corner that comprises part of the "front" and part of the "side".
The thing to note here is that 1 and 4 have the "front" piece on the left hand side and 2 and 3 have the "front" piece on the right hand side.

This allows the models to be placed as above to form the footprint of a huge ruined building.

Here you can see 1 and 2 making up most of the "front" of the building.

This is what the building would look like complete.

Here you can see 4 and 2 making up most of the "side" of the building

This is what the side would look like complete.

Finally, here are some tabletop shots

These have taken so much time to finish largely because I wanted to minimise the shipping costs. The great news here is that all of these buildings ship for under $5 each!

They are in the store here:
