Based on descriptions in Prawer and Runciman is this Palestinian house. Equally to be seen in the town as an bourgeois or even noble house or as a small manor in the countryside, each presented a fairly bland exterior with the main buildings being arranged around a central court-yard. The tiled floor is an image I found on the internet, printed off and glued to the MDF base with PVA.
The walls are of foam-core board, the cut edges sealed with filler to stop them from melting when being painted! The tree is from one of those ebay shops punching out great quantities of good quality product in China.
Mr Donkey is a 1:48th farm figure from Pegasus.
The whole package. The little butresses were added from odd offcuts of foam-core to add a little interest to the rather bland exterior walls. The exterior was painted with cans of variously coloured spay-paint with a little selective dry-brushing toward the end of the job.
