How to chainlink fences

With Halfords selling a little sheet of very fine mesh doing chainlink fences has never been easier.

 Cut a base 6" by 1" & three pieces of balsa wood 50mm

I drilled three holes in the base where the posts are going to go the reason for this is to get a better bond between the posts & the base.

Next shape the base as nothing looks worse then square edges 

I use some lego to set the posts plumb.

As you can see the lego does a good job of setting the posts plumb.

If you want to paint the mesh glue it on before this stage, I just spray it brown

Next step is to get the base done

When cutting the mesh I fined it hand to put a bit of tape on it for marking where to cut.

Job done 6+ cover save FTW lol

I'll give the mesh a brown wash to make it less new looking

 These fences can be used in a lot of different games

I'll do a how to on the little buildings in another post
