Joolz, this is so, so very good. Man you are modeling with such heart and detail. I am blown away.
You only have yourself to blame Scott! ;)
It was you that inspired me over a year ago, and you who introduced me to scratch building.
Many Thanks Scott, I truly mean it buddy.
Joolz.

It's all good. This hobby is a lot of fun and I'm glad you found that again. Wow, this is starting to sound like the Oprah show! But seriously, you are kicking this diorama's butt.

Wait a minute... WAIT an minute... WAIT A COTTON PICKEN MINUTE!

Joolze, you only started scratchbuilding and that a year or so ago? :eek:

Well, that does it then, I off to the fabric store to get some nice quilting material. Or perhaps knitting would be better for me. Cause compaired to what I've been doing for the last 8 years or so, your work looks like you've been doing this for a century or two!

You are a natural dude. I am in awe of you.

Okay Doky getting really close now.

Tiles painted and added.


Just a few more roof timbers added to the dio.


A touch more here.

Time to add some leaves to the creeper (brown ones for winter). I'm using seeds from silver birch catkins that SWMBO collected for me. Eye strain here we come.



So far s good.

At bit more done today.
Gutter and down spout done.



SWMBO wanted me to add some swallows nest under the eves, so whilst I had the magic sculpt out I made a few more bit of eye candy for the dio (my 1st time at sculpting).


A few tools, swallows nests x3, robins nest, coffee pot and cup, yard brush and some light bulbs. (OCD creeping in )


The box is open!

Scott I used drinking straws, a plastic tube that used to hold a balloon that the kids got from a local fair, when the balloon popped I nabbed the tube for my spares box (8 months ago) and some magic sculpt.

I must say this is a great kit, from what I've read on the interclick people hate the rubber bands that come with kits and much prefer replacing them with metal ones.
Not wanting to spend money its the rubber bands for me.
The detail is pretty good and I didn't have any problems fixing them to the model, or depicting the force of gravity, which I think turned out just fine. The front LHS wheel, just back from the drive sprocket has been slightly raised compared to the others, as this wheel is just coming into contact with the pile of debris infront of the main house.
I had some fine brass mesh in my spares box so decided to replace the fine black plasticy mesh that came with the kit.





I'd better get cracking! ;)

The King T is built with some minor damage, so its off to paint.
Tracks painted dark brown for starters, wheels primed and painted.


This is about the forth time I've used an airbrush :-[
On with the primer.


Then red oxide.


Then German Dark Yellow shade Dunkelgelb.





Back to the spraying. ;)

Where did you get that nifty lookin spray box? Or is that home made?

The girlfriend has laid down the law at my house...no more spraying on her kitchen table. And she never bought the whole tiny gangsta gnomes who were coming in and tagging the house while we slept theory.

Screamin, the spray booth is this http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=4680 I bought mine from a UK online model shop for £62 , but it has since gone up to £75. My other half hasn't complained about paint since I started using it so it must be good. ;D

Started with the camo today all free hand as I wanted to try my hand at spraying free hand. I know the real thing was hard edged but hey why not. ;D A little bit more green then on to the brown.




Enjoy or criticize its up to you. ;)
