Greetings from warm Athens.
Hope you are all well.
As most of you remember, my last post was about a new terrain piece I was preparing for my Normandy Project. A normandy town house made from stone - well, it was made from Plasticard and foamcore card but, for the sake of our hobby, let's all pretend that I am telling the truth. :-)
If you have noticed, the whole project was done in a pile of paints, brushes, cutters, pieces of plastic etc etc....
My inspiration for the house you are going to see below, derived from the links below (not in any particular order), which helped me 'envision' the finished result. So, in case you were wondering, yes, I am a crazy tosser, I see a wooden gate, and ask myself ''what can I make out of it''....? Other people think about cancer curement, famine extinction...well, I don't. I see plastic people (and metal occasionally) everywhere... :-)
It was a rather time-consuming work, because I decided to develop my modelling approach, by adding some new features, such as round pieces of foamcore for the gate, pieces of needles for the window cases, a new-mix for weathering stonework and other building parts etc.. :-)
The dimensions of this piece are big, compared to other previous works I've done. The base only, is 30cm x 30cm. I reckon that if I carry producing behemoths like this in the future, I won't manage to get married, cause my girlfriend will throw me out of the house (or my models - sth anyway, to save some space). :-)
So, on with the photos......
What do you think? Will it serve its purpose?
Any C&C are more than welcome!
Have a great Monday night everyone!
