Smile Small update, lots of detail

Hello Ropi and Don

How are you doing with the groundwork, are you experimenting yet?

Well today's update is in the details, yes they are pesky, they don't cooperate but,
when you get some done you can sit back and smile ... I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

First up: Reference files... very important!
It may be a gutter, but the details make the viewer look longer!




Next in order: AGAIN Reference files... very important!
I can't emphasize more the importance of doing some homework...




Next: The Oval base creates it's own problems on placing a building ...
So you must decide where to end a building and how far to go.

Here you have the interior of the fašade, lots of styrene and the supplies run low ... I also decided to do
the second floor with wood putty to maintain the texture of the bricks and mortar, (and leave my plastic stock alone)




OK ... we have here: The Fašade

I can already imagine it with the painted store name and worn woodwork,
about the color... it may be blue or green ...




Last Up: How does this all stack up on the oval base?

As I mentioned before, I,m ... , and wait till you see what I have in store in the following updates,
glass shelves, broken glass held together with masking tape, cloth curtains, maybe some shades? ...



Thank God this is only half a store front, could you imagine a complete fašade or two?

Comments are welcome ... enjoy your projects and share, model on!

I really love the attention that you give for the details.
Good work!

What I like in your job is you really care about everything, and I mean EVERYTHING.

Wow!!

Carlos, you are really going the distance with this one. That fašade is looking great.

Unhappy It's Curtains for me ...

Hello Planeteers ...

Got you worried?
No ... really it's curtains for me, literally ... read on!

First let me thank Ropi, Gopher, Panzerjaeger, Radek Rzeszotarski and Driver for you comments ...

Details ... they take time ... and I want to do so much, ask Driver he knows.

1. As you can see below I added to the 2nd floor some window sills to give a "stop" to the vertical plane,
I can't go up because the UE is small and has a low profile

2. Then on to the ventilation grids out front, I used styrene rods crisscrossing them and
built a box behind them and painted the inside flat black.
Reference photo 2 and 3 are both WW I images, again taken in France

3. The curtains, cut out from gift wrap tissue and wrapped around a .025" styrene rod and ending with a .010" (0.3mm)
styrene rod at the bottom with the tissue paper folded and glued.

Oh by the way, they will be painted... I had to chose what color to use while making the curtains ...
it was either pink, baby blue, lavender or yellow ... easy choice don't you think?

Should I go ahead and do the tassels at the bottom of the curtain like in the reference photo? Not!

4. That number 4 is a shocker, after I was happy with the Fašade ... Then I noticed that the wall is a brick one and
not wood as I originally built , no problem I glued the left over "thin" cobble stones and filled in the mortar area
with diluted water putty ...



Now I'm working on the Glass windows ...

Till next time!

Hi Carlos,

I haven't noticed yet that you were building a wooden wall. If I had, I would have warned you that it is pretty rare in France (except Normandy and a few other regions, where wood was actually used). All the way from the middle ages the main building material was stone (in the countryside until the mid 1950s! - France). Most of the buildings are pretty "heavy" even if they don't always look like ones (In some regions they have wooden facade to cover it), they can reach 70 centimeters (aprox. 27.5") of wall thickness! And most of these heavy buildings still stand. In this case it is hard to tell wether the facade is wood or carved stone...
^Beh. Much ado about nothing.^
Good work!
Arthur

Wowsers, yet again a jaw-dropping update. The curtains - simple but soooo good!

Can't wait to see the next steps. This is one of _the_ nicest threads here at PA, for sure.

Cheers
Johannes.
