Thanks Beatlefan!

I could totally imagine the little brown skirted one being used in VAM, or Adventure Team HQ. I was going for that 1970's look. Initially this was going to be all moldy with paint and moss, with tears and damage for my S.T.A.L.K.E.R's (from my life in the zone post) to use. Like they found it in a derelict building in the Chernobyl exclusion zone and it works as a bed for the night. But then I thought I'd make a sister couch.. the i liked them too much to damage them.

I've got other stuff in the pipeline, including a bed and mattress set that will be a collaboration with my mum who sews.

Totally agree, they are far too good to start adding a damaged look.

Look forward to your other projects!

Ohhhh! Forgive me! I left England when I was like seven, so I was unaware!

Well maybe I can become the 1/6 DFS of AMMO!!

I'm now branching into designs for tables.

Here in the States I suppose the DFS equivalent would be Ashley Furniture or IKEA.

Dimitri wanted a bit of peace and quiet this evening. I guess the other 1/6 people might have been a little much? I suspect they were bugging him about spending the last few weeks naked, he likes to do that now and then.

I let him use this old room that had basically been a storage room for nearly ten years. It gave me a chance to see the couch in an actual diorama. I let him borrow a record player and my newly acquired salt lamp so he could relax while he cleaned some old rifles.

Hey BAM, I made the bedframe that is leaning against the wall years ago, the brown table and of course the sofa. The dresser which is sort of playing guncabinet is a jewelry box ans the shelf in the back corner was a five dollar craft store find.

I want to start making more varied furniture but these items are good for staging for now.

Love the furniture!  I'll have to see if I've got some more material to make some more of my own.  Any chance of a tutorial to see how you build up the internals of the sofas?

Here's how I did mine with cardboard:

Thanks guys! This is V1, I think V2 will be a bit more reinforced. It's striking a balance between a realistic look and a stable frame. I was going for that "Mid Century Modern" look.

It is how I was furnishing my rental, and planning on doing my house until our economy crapped out, and I had to move in with my parents rather than buy my first home. Doll scale will have to do for now.

Rogue Trooper, just a pre-cut piece from a craft store, if I had to guess, 1/4 ply? I am going to try to make some unique shapes.. Like a 60's kidney bean style, when it is sturdy.

After some radio silence, I wanted to share some old school cool I'm working on. Sort of the 60's, mid-century modern.

Boomerang cocktail table! Love it!

And that fruit-flavored fabric is wild!
