Volker, Your method for making the sinks was simple and effective. Did their interior surface get any addition coatings or sanding to smooth them after removing them from the jig?

No, they were completely smooth aside of one "crack" where I put several layers of paper at one time and didn't notice there was a wrinkle. Using another, bigger hemisphere one could even have the outer surface smooth. I didn't take care because it's not visible later on.

So, you used a technique quite like the way fiberglass boats are built to make the wash bowls?  Tissue paper and wood glue instead of fiber mats and resin.  VERY SMART.  Snipping the tissue as you shape it over the form would remove many of the problems with folds in the tissue in the final model. 

I wonder where this technique can led to?

Especially for the very first layer this is quite a good idea for sure.

Chris,

would you mind to post a closeup of the structure's surface to have a direct comparison with the toilet surface?

Cheers,

That's a nice kitchen. I like all the components and details, especially the top of the table. The wear on it looks perfect.

Nice composition.  The layout makes for a useful work space.  I am waiting for you to add the aroma of baking bread to the diorama Grin Grin.

More 3-D prints or did you build up the kitchen appliances from something else? Either way everything seems quite adequate. -- Russ

Thanks Bill, Lawton, Russ and Ray,

the smell of baking bread ... that's something. Will be difficult, to keep it in the kitchen area  Grin

More 3-D prints or did you build up the kitchen appliances from something else? Either way everything seems quite adequate. -- Russ

The pots (?) with the wooden covers are 3D-printed, but making them on a lathe would habe lead to better results. The signs are printed to cigarette paper ans 'glued' to the prints with clear matte lacquer. Decals would have worked for sure but it is a bit expensive for just one small item.

The tiles mirror is very fine grey lines printed to silk matte photo glossy paper, back drenched with CA, which makes it irregularly translucent, and then glued to some white cardstock with PVA. Frame is tinned brass angle section and the dots are tinned brass nails. At the oven handles, pipe elbow and sleeves are printed. Everything else is low tech.

Cheers,
Volker

The kitchen is nearly done aside of some items for the shelves. There are two independent light sources.

Hello Volker,

please don't forget the oven sheet, because so falling embers would fall on the wooden floor, that was even then already regulation. There is also still a lack of fuel for heating the stove. This was now metered at an extremely high level, which would underline the already existing perfection.

Very effective lighting. I like the conduit on the wall and ceiling.

Holy cow! Once again you've amazed me! Very fine work. I especially like the electrical conduits on the wall and ceiling.
