A Look At – Building The LX004-OO Garden Fencing Kit (Part One)
Garden Fencing Kit – OO / 1:76 Scale
In this article we take a look at the LX004-OO Garden Fence Kit by Scalemodelscenery.co.uk. This kit is a 4ft scale fence & also includes two small garden gates. An ideal kit for an evenings modelling session. The fence makes up into five sections which when joined together makes up a total length of 88cm.
The posts are taller than the fence which allows for fitting into pre-drilled holes in your baseboard. Glue the post ends with Deluxe Materials Roket Card glue & insert into the pre-drilled holes. If you need a longer fence use additional LX004-OO kits to extend the fence.
- Craft Knife
- Deluxe Materials Roket Card Glue or P.V.A glue
- Cutting Matt
- Sanding Stick
- Optional – Acrylic paints
Repeat by adding another bead of glue on top of the post you’ve just glued on. Now place a second post on to the bead of glue to form a stack of three. Again make sure all sides are square & true.
Now repeat the above so that all the fence sections have the posts & rail posts fitted as shown on the right. There will be enough spare rail posts to allow joining fence sections together.
Gates & gate posts
We now turn our attention to the gates. Cut out the posts as shown on the right. Sand flush any pips on the side edges but be careful not sand the gate hinges off!
The gate posts are made up of three sections. Take one piece with out the hinges & run a bead of glue as shown on the right.
Place the post with the hinges onto the post with the glue on. Make sure all sides are true & sqaure.
Now run another bead of glue onto the post with the hinges on. Then place another post section without hinges on to glued post. Make sure all edges are sqaure & true.
Now take three more posts & glue into a stack of three as before. This time cut & remove the hinges. Sand sides flush.
In part two we’ll look at fitting the gates to the fence & installing the fence onto the layout.
