hi all .Asphalt I have had a look at the article by Narayan great stuff using his approach of hand-laid brick pavements and moving asphalt looks great this approach now seems to be common.I had a good look at my asphalt and I have come to the conclusion that the whole scene is too bust there are just too many textures fighting for attention so I remembered an old approach that I have used I will share it in alter post but it has calmed the whole scene down.
cheers kim

I like the layout of things so the track is not right up on the front of the benchwork.

The Start of the mixer

Your precise styrene work never fails to amaze me.

This is so great. You should be adding this to the miniature rooms in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Haha, first I'd need to overcome my aviatophobia.

From this side of the pond the door won't be accessible later on; door handle then is only visible through door pane.

For some time I bothered about the ps business for the shop entrance's sideways show cases, including the shutter box.

The whole composition needs to be removable and I soon felt, that I was neither willing nor able to give a corresponding wooden look to the styrene parts in direct neighbourhood of a wooden door. To cap it all the edges started to loose their coloring after repeatedly assembling and demounting the entrance at the house (it slides into the walls from above).  

So i decided to start a new approach with veneer and I like the result much more.

I reused the shutter box, which won't be visible later on.

I faced an interesting challenge with the cord, which helps to close the shutter. It runs from the shutter box axle into the brass tube ...

... and then straight through the basement wall, but there was no borehole and I don't have that long drills do make a vertical bore straight alongside the building's walls. And the brass tube needed to hit that bore exactly (the black flyspeck close to the corner).

To measure and mark the right position wasn't that difficult, but again I didn't have a drill that long to bore that hole from down under (pun intended. I hope there is some Huh).

I predrilled with a bigger drill as deep as possible and then glued the final diameter's drill into a brass tube of the predrilled bore's diameter to bridge the distance.

That worked. Somehow (the flyspeck is the borhole  Grin).

I'm afraid that's going to be boring to you.

And now to something completely different.

Some years ago a friend (thanks, Torsten!) gave me a lot of little clock-face lights. I still feel that no LED can bring the same light effect a bulb brings.

The lights are soldered to small board pieces, which are soldered to self adhesive copper foil strips adhering to some cardboard.

This shapes the sideward part, which is glued with CA to the rear cover of the show case.

And that's what all this fuzz was about:

Please excuse me repeating that very similar picture; it's the only one to get an idea of the radial light effect of those actual bulbs. It's nearly impossible to have both the warm light impression of the bulbs and the radial appearance in one picture, which is clearly visible with the naked eye.

Show case displays like watches and glasses to come ... I couldn't wait to add that poster at least.
