Stairs of wrappingbands and paper

Plastic bands for wrapping goods can be used for steelplates with the diamomndshaped pattern.

Here is a bit of the band.

I painted it grey and did some removing of the paint on top of the pattern to make it look worn.

Then I made a simple stairs to show how real it looks in 1:25 scale.
I was out mesuring the stairs outside my workshop,scaled it down to 1:25,and here is the result.

I guess this also is useful in the armour section :)

Hi Josve,
I guess it's a good idea to keep the eys wide open and to look for items we can use esp. for dioramas,
Thank You for the hint.

Best regards

Hallo John,

thank you for presenting this idea.

However, I am only a shipmodeller... and so the 1:25-scare ist rare.

But I also think that it is a helpful tip for the armoured... :)
