1/72 scale bricks and stuff

It still amazes me just what you can get in 1/72 scale. I picked up these miniature terracotta bricks for £2 a pack as I am planning a small Battle of Berlin diorama base for my ISU-122. Now I could have made my own bricks, but as usual I like to buy a commercial example of a scale item first so I can get an idea of scale and size before scratch building my own versions...

Aside from the bricks I also bought a set of cheap airbrush cleaning brushes as I am starting to use my airbrush a lot more and despite my care I notice that some paint is hard to shift during cleaning.

Now all I have to do is to work out how to make realistic urban rubble and whether I need to add mortar to my bricks to give them that realistic used look...LOL

Bricks bought from: Basecrafts Wargaming Basing Materials & Supplies (UK)

  1. Nice find with the bricks, I'll have to get some myself for that Stalingrad look, and as for the airbrush cleaners, I ordered a set too a while back and they sent me a quick release adapter by mistake at twice the price so I kept that. I really should get some proper brushes though
