Making Cobblestone Roads for Models Using Styrofoam
There are a number of ways of creating cobblestone/brick roads for use in dioramas, game terrain, and for scale model display stands. These days, lots of hobbyists are using plastic patterned rollers that you can buy or 3D print and press the stone design into sheets of thin sytrofoam.
In this Night Shift video, master modeler Martin shows off the magic achieved using the old fashion method of carving each stinkin’ brick into the foam by hand. The results speak for themselves.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
