Discussion in 'Scratchin' & Bashin'' started by belg, Oct 18, 2003.
First of three photos and a work in progress.
I know the roof looks a little crooked in the first picture that's because it's not attached yet so can add the lighting. #3
looking for ideas
I would love to hear some constructive critisizm and any other things that could be added to make it look even better.Thanks Pat
Constructive Critisizm? I don't see anything to critisize about belg
It all looks fabulious.
Add a foundation and it's perfect! Nice work.
Criticizm, how the heck can someone have criticizm about that ?
It looks great man,realy nice.
How about you build some for me? You can send them by courier.
The only thing I'd add is a layout under it.
Keep the photos coming.
belg, I join the rest: No criticism! On the contrary: Great weathering, and it surely is an interesting structure.
But mmhhh..... Oh yes, I found a complaint (YOU asked for it ): You forgot to tell what it is!
It somehow looks chemical... What are your LPBs cooking up in that plant?
like rest nothing to nit pick on as they say here muy bueno.
Pat, it's looking good, but I agree with Tyson. It needs a foundation. The structure itself looks good, but you've got a large smoke stack and a large roof tank. That suggests some sort of heavy industry and equipment inside the structure and the need for a solid foundation. And just from a visual standpoint, a foundation will really enhance the overall appearance of the model.
The foundation's in the works but I'm not happy with the first effort to try and glue sections of plaster together, so the next try will be to pour one in one piece and carve it afterwards.Also was there ever a thread on how to build an outside light like the ones over an ice cream store canopy?
Pat, I very seldom direct members of one forum to threads/topics on another forum, but you might find this to be of help in casting your foundation.
On that page and several others after, I describe casting a stone foundation for a scratchbashing project I've been working on. I initially had some problems with the plaster drying, but eventually everything worked out. Between my posts and the observations of some other members on RR-L forum, you might find some helpful tips for yours. Hope this helps.
there was a artical on pouring solid foundations using rock like ho ballest for n in the plaster then gently wire brushing to make stones stand out will look it up.
I'd love to see that one, too!
Looking very good! Don't you just love working with wood?
you ask and you shall receive!
Here's a little progress on my project structure. Thanks to Casey for his input and reference material. Now this brings into play an excellent oppertunity to include a loading platform.
Belg....That looks wonderful.
