TMT - History in Miniature

The Alamo

The Alamo- maybe as famous as Rorke's Drift and maybe for the same reasons- heroic stand against overwhelming odds.
This model was an early one in TMterrain's history so I have forgotten much of the detail of how I did it!

The Alamo compound from above

The commission was for a 15mm model of the whole compound. My customer supplied me with enough research material so I didn't need to do that part.

The buildings themselves are all straight forward adobe type structures so once I started modeling it was reasonably straight forward. The challenge was in the planning- the layout, how it all joined together, and making sure I got the accurate detail in the right places.

The most ornate and complicated building in the compound was the chapel. The facade has alot going on but in 15mm scale I was able to simplify it a little and still make it look right and recognizable as the Alamo chapel.

If you have any questions on any of these projects or they have inspired you to ask about your own commission then please contact David.
