Soldier Settlement Cottage, Australia

Here is my entry into the craft, made a month ago.

I have designed it based on this cottage from a NSW post WW1 soldier settlement (Kentucky, NSW) though I simplified it a bit:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldie...erscottage.jpg

I made the building in 2 versions: 28mm and 15mm to see how it look at different scale as I'd like to create small areas (For tabletop games and as a christmas village) but space is a consideration.

I used 190 weight paper but the end result was a bit wobbly so I had to put some heavier cardboard inside as re-enforcement.

To give an idea of scale, I've put a 1980s warhammer 40k figurine (~28mm) next to the larger house and since I don't have any actual 15mm figurines, I put this monopoly token next to the smaller as the rider itself is about 15mm.

As I said earlier in another thead I'm impressed by the graphics in these models. Taking a liberty perhaps but I'm going to add the Wikipedia url for the Australian soldier resettlement schemes
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldie...nt_(Australia)
These schemes, following both wars, were important aspects of the development of several parts of Australia and are historically significant.
They also gave rise to interesting examples of vernacular architecture as discussed in an earlier thread

Those will look good out on game tables. Always interesting to learn of the story, the history, associated with a thing.

Very nice little home. I assume a wood burning stove was used for warmth and food preparation, but where inside the house would that be located? Do you have interior floorplans?

OK!
So tell me this if you tell ne no more.
Why has the forum software mutilated that link into

http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/r...t_%28Australia

which takes you to a page which denies the existence of the topic.

Pending an explanation go to that worthless page and put -

soldier settlement

- into the search box and immediately the intended page will open !!


Lets see if this link gets murdered like the last one.


https://www.walchanewsonline.com.au/...ding-kentucky/

In case it does here's DTO's chimney peaking over the top

I've checked that link, as I did the previos link immediately after posting, and as before, it's working.
I'll be back in afew days to check if it's still working.

The explanation is quite simple actually

The link you had in post #3, while correct, had the closing parenthesis on the right side of the closing url tag, so when i looked at your first post, i saw Australia[/url]), and the url on Wikipedia shows Australia)
simple mistake, simple fix
