The Fence:

I have wanted a fence around the old barn on the AMV. Now that soon to be 3 year old Mati seems to have lost interest in rearranging the layout I finally made one. Long ago I had purchased a picket fence set. I was really never fond of it so decided to make my own. I cut some balsa into thin strips and since I have a foam base I glued straight pins on the ends for mounting. Don't cut your strips to small; makes them difficult to work with. After gluing you can use some small scissors to even things out. After assembly I made some really thin black paint for a stain. I wanted to make some railing look broken but was afraid it would weaken the structure so left thing alone. :(

Agreed, nice job on the fence Bob. From the looks of the barn you need a good fence to keep people away from it to help avoid a lawsuit when that thing caves in. :)
