There are several ways of enhancing a model scene with miniature parcels. You can either buy more or less suitable products from the modelling accessories market or make these parcels yourself. We show you here how to do that without having to spend any money.
of all, we cut a piece of styrofoam to a suitably-sized block (7 mm x 5 mm x 3 mm
/ 0.28 in x 0.2 in x 0.12 in; the real parcel would be 61 cm x 43 cm x 26 cm
or 24 in x 17 in x 10 in).
we needed a piece of corrugated cardboard. Its surface has got a sufficiently
fine structure which would still look realistic when used for making a
carefully, we lifted off the upper layer of the cardboard. This sheer layer
would form our model parcel.
packaging tape is usually very thin and hence seemed suitable to 'seal'
miniature box as well. We cut 2 tiny strips (only 0.6 mm / 0.02 in wide) and
kept them for later. Converted into 1/1 scale, these strips would have the same
width as the 'real' tape.
