In a fit of enthusiasm, got from who know where I dug out one of the models from my 54mm western project, based on the 1960s film the Magnificent 7, last seen on this blog a year ago! I thought I'd put some colours on to see if it would keep my enthusiasm going (but probably more because I had nothing to post about this week!)
For each of the three buildings, I've tried to get as close as possible to their real-life counter parts in the film, which is very tricky ! (Each photograph of the model is followed by a similar view from the film)
Mostly I've done block colours, as either primer (in the case of tiled roofs) or trial colours, still needing shading and highlighting - but it's a start !
|The 'Shack' on the left of the three
|The white smoke on the left is from a gunshot
|The 'Jail' in the centre
|Is that a copper hood over the jail window ?
|The rightmost building, the 'Blue' house
|Yes, I do have a pot ready to go into that peculiar alcove!
|The alcove and the side wall.
|How it looked in the film.
So, that's what I've been up to last week and hopefully this week I'llget a little more done on the model, after yet another hospital visit ( a follow-up to my operation0 and the collection of my spectacles - yay! The latter will enable me to more successfully paint the window frames !
That's it then for another week, hopefully there was something of interest here - at least it's current and hobby-related !
Thanks for taking the time to visit, as alaways your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
