The central pneumatic air compressor has the ability to help homeowners complete large home improvement jobs that can get really expensive if they hire a contractor. The average cost of this compressor is $180.00 from Harbor Freight Tools, but it can be found online at a discount. Once you know you are able to replace dry wall or a window by yourself, the compressor will have paid for itself many times over.
As far as materials you have a good choice. There is always the old standby: balsa wood. Balsa is light and easy to cut. A better choice might be plastics, in which case I would recommend using plastic from Evergreen Scale Models. That company produces a wide variety of shapes (sheet plastic, I beams, corrugated, etc.). Plastic also produces plastic in many construction type shapes.
The Kitchen Back Splash. Do it yourself. Hi My name is Bill and I have taught ceramic tile installation to the local community college for several years. I will attempt to do this again with my only tool being words. First preparation is the biggest part of the project. Laying out where the tile will go. This is a process of measuring what is available. Measure the available wall space. Then set 4 tile side by side like they will look on the wall. Measure the total amount of linear distance they will take up. Why? Well how you transition back to the wall from the tile is one of the most critical parts to how it looks. A full piece out at the counter or breakfast nook is preferable to a very thin piece with a cut edge right next to the dinner's eye level. Also you will need to plan one inch for the Bull nose tile. This is the tile that has a glazed transition back to the wall surface. Go into Lowes and ask some questions or visit Home despot online for some video trainings.
If you have ever seen a spray paint artist performing or on YouTube and wanted to try it, you can start out with an air-brush and water based acrylics instead. Spray paint cans can get very expensive and you will need much more protection and care to use them as they contain solvents. Start out with water based acrylics and an air-brush so you can learn to do spray paint art the safe and easy way.
Long gone are the days when buying something from a different state - let alone a different country - would be an exotic or adventurous concept. It has now become an everyday experience to order something from an online store, wait a few days and then, hey presto, it's arrived as if by magic. You could be buying the latest mass-produced high-tech from Best Buy, a vintage, secondhand product from a seller on either eBay or eCRATER, or a uniquely upcycled handmade item from a creative craft maker located on the other side of the world via Etsy.
I am not sure what scale architectural models are build to, but 1:200 does not equate to inches very well. 1/48th works out to 1/4-inch equals 1 foot, and 1/72 equal 1/6 to one foot. The scale should be divisible by 12 (i.e. 1/144th scale would be 144 divided by 12 which gives 1/12 of an inch equals one foot). You could always go with 1/192 (1/16 of an inch equals one foot), which is a popular scale for ship models. Another choice would be use metric where 1/200th would work fine.
