Hey guys, no rest here....!
Have been taking pictures for about a year now of these buildings and all the junk that is scattered about the property. Friendly old man who owns the place but he canīt understand why I would like to build a model of his home
. As this is my first try with anything larger than 1/87 scale some input here would be helpful. Itīs easy to "think" 1/87 scale and believe you can include a hundred ideas here but I understand that I have to reduce the size of some buildings and I wont model all of them.
Anyway the era will be the 1950īs - 1960īs. My plan is to build the entire north wall and have one pair of the double doors open so the interior of a small garage can be viewed properly. No, no......not another Krakow garage! The front yard will have a guy working on his car and motorcycle and sometimes he will take on repair jobs from a few customers so a couple of vehicles and spare parts can be justified.
The building behind the two cars is the small home - Iīll call this the east wall. The west wall is the one with the embedded boulders. The south side is complicated with the additional buildings so weīll se how I can reduce that to something manageable. The back of the east walls will not be modeled as I donīt find that nessecary - obviously this is the back of the diorama. In other words this will be an L - shaped structure.
The property on the south side is filled with piles of all sorts of junk that I have documented. However I have more or less decided to make that into a dump site following pictures that I took elsewhere but also mix in some stuff from the actual site.
Iīm well underway with many detail parts and have also made a small test for the dump site as can be seen in the attached pictures. Dave www.vectorcut.com
has again promised to help out with some detail parts. My main concern is the south wall and how to make that interesting without the two additional buildings. Some input would be most appreciated.
