Hello,I would like to show how I made my model of Hougoumont.
It is in 1/72 scale,and will be a part of my Waterloo 1815 -diorama,when it's finished :wink:
When it is ready,complete with al the figures I painted for the French attack on this castle,it will be showed in the non-Airfix diorama gallery.
I hope the pic's tell the story :lol:

Brilliant as ever, Hans!  This is jaw-droppingly stunning!

Hans, how do you get the dimensions - especially the building heights?  Do you get plans or do you get permission to take measurements?  I know that you visit the buildings you model.

Thank you so much for showing us how you built this masterpiece!

Uitstekend! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Absolutely amazing!  Your detail and workmanship is amazing.
By the way is that the British secret weapon hiding in the barn on the left of 5th picture from the bottom?  :D

Ye Gods, the attention to detail is superb.

Like others I loved the way you have done the roof tiles. I was just thinking that you could have used the buildings as part of a WW1 set up, but you have beaten me to it, as spotted by Englishman in MN!!!
