Hello

I am approching the end..

Weathering of the windows:



First test on the layout:





I want to add some stuff on the roof. And of course I need some passengers, too.
There is still a lot of small weathering to do.

Hi Thomas.
You have captured the chaos of Asia really well .love the rail line going through the street scene. Before you asked about the colour of the surrounds of your scene -either black or white the general colour used is black it seems to draw your eye more into the scene.
cheers Tim - Kim

Hi Kim
Thank you for your comment. I was not sure if I should use black or white. Finally I am happy with my choice of the light grey.
It doesn't have the big contrast. For me this works Vetter.
And thanks for your Kind words : I really appriciate your work very much, too !

Hi everybody

I had this foto as my inspiration:



And now I made my own version of it:



The bicycle is from Tamiya with some superdetailing parts.
The stones are real bricks 1:35 that Marcel Ackle gave generously to me.
Thanks a lot!

Nick, I'm just guessing here, but since the idenity of the guy with the bike is secret, could it be James bond?

The bricks on the model are stacked slightly differently from those on the full size bike. An accurate model would precisely duplicate the "prototype". -- ssuR

 I know , Iím surprised you allow such sloppy workmanship on your forum . Standards are definitely slipping .

The prototype is both hilarious and quite impressive. Shows some real ingenuity and skill!

The model is amazing and also a great show of skill!

Hello

I know... my poor knowledge on real quality modelling made me do this mistake..
There is now excuse... Please throw me out of the forum... Please....

By the way: the bricks are manufactured by a small german company:

Hmmm....quite good, but perhaps the tires on the bicycle should be compressed some! Grin
