28mm Afghan Compound

Had a request for a 28mm Afghan Compound, I'd checked out the mdf ones available but wasn't happy with the wall thicknesses and general size, so decided to build from scratch. Dougie. As a basis for size, roof/floor height I used the Renedra Mud Brick House.
 The compound is constructed from 10mm craftfoam which is very easy to work with.
 A view of the basic form.
 The square edges and corners are sanded to give the Afghan look.
 Internal floors put in
 These are removable
 Corners distressed
 Murder hole added
 The compound with texture added using filler
 Doors constructed
 Painted and distressed
 Basic colour added and based
 Doors hung
 Job done with some bits and bobs added for character
