Hi guys,

completely new to scale modelling, have worked on my first model, and I'd love to put it on a simple tarmac base, do you have any suggestions for a tarmac base ?

Thank you !

Hi Lukas,

a few ideas spring to mind, the most obvious is to use dark grey/ black sand paper from your DIY store etc.
Coarseness of sand paper depends on scale, but the finer grades are a safer bet [smile]
mount on to a stiff board of some kind and paint on your white and yellow lines as needed.

If you want to simulate cracks tear into the edges slightly chaotically and then do imperfect repairs on the tears,
apply some kind of wash to highlight cracks,


I also like using cereal box cardboard for concrete tiles too, handy for sidewalks etc. [smile]


Anyhow hope it helps [smile]
