So this week, whilst slowly melting and the usual real-life interuptions of two Birthday parties (One a Poker evening and the other my youngest granchild's two year old birthday party). As part of the above activities I also managed three long(ish) walks, about as far as I can manage currently and was very pleased with myself. Most of the week I've been house painting, models, not the larger 1:1 scale ones.
The inside walls have all been done, some tidying up on the outside walls and their plasterwork has all been done.There is still a lot of tidying up to do on window and door frames etc., but nothing major. However the two pantile roofs are still to be re-painted and then the whole of the three-building block will need a lot of dark washes and some highlighting too, before being called 'finished'.
Here's the photos of the bits I've done this week (with the jail plasterwork complete above) and I found out it does take quite a while to paint all the walls !
|The shack, interior walls and floos done !|
|The shacks rear and entrance wall finished.|
|Rear of the 'blue' house finished.|
|Internal walls completed|
|Interior of the 'jail', note the window cage top left.|
|Pretty boring photo of the rear of the 'Jail'|
|Very boring pic of the end wall of the shack.|
It may not seem a lot by most gamers, but I can guarantee that I've spent more than ten hours this week painting ! (Which is a lot by my standards).
That's it though for this week, no doubt next week will be more of the same (sorry).
Thanks for taking the time to visit and of course your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
Oh. Really love that stuff!ReplyDelete
Thank you Michal, very much appreciated.Delete
Good to hear your mobility is returning Joe, and your not pushing too hard.ReplyDelete
Wonderful progress on the buildings, they really capture the feeling of the buildings from the film.
Thanks Dave, it's hrd to realise that only two of the nine main buildings had interior photography.Delete
Looks good Joe!ReplyDelete
Thanks MJT, I'll be happy enough when I'm done with them.Delete
Tremendous Joe and great to hear that you have been out and about too; not easy in this weather!ReplyDelete
Thanks Michael, it's coming along, slowly, just like my walks ! (Luckily my riute was on the shaded side of the street too,Delete
Splendid work your film set! Repaint the roof or a load of fast and dirty washes and a highlight maybe? I've got buildings primed I really should try and finish off sometime soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks Iain, some minor modelling work still to do, then as you say, roof re-paint washes and a bit highlighting.Delete
It's obviously a set, there are no outhouses in the entire film!
Your buildings are looking great, Joe, you've really managed to match them to the movie!ReplyDelete
Thanks Matt, it's tricky getting them even close, givenmy eyesight problems.Delete
Great job Joe and worth the persevering I say. At least now you won't curse everytime you see the mistake.ReplyDelete
Thans Michael, but alas I fear this model won't see the light of daya again, once finished.Delete
