Sorry for my lack of participation...just been really busy....so no modeling time.

...but since Anders asked about this project in the Duetz thread....

Basically it's about 90-95% finished (still needs the window, and some small details like hinges, and a hook on the exterior for the lantern).....however I was not that thrilled with it so I just stuck it away in a cabinet. This is where it was at when I stopped work on it.













Cheers,

Marc

Wood grain texture and some of the coloring, chipping on the red, the dirt/dust on the interior, and the overall proportions.
I am really pleased with all the small clutter details though (except the oil stain on the toolbox, which ended up too "shiny" ).

Not crippling...just not completely happy with it...but I knew this would be the likely result, as it really was just a project that was intended/developed as a series of experiments for a variety of techniques and processes, for me to learn and prove things to myself. ...and it really didn't have a clear plan...just ageneral direction that developed/happened as I went along, and depending on what I wanted to try. Smiley

It may still eventually get finished..as the window is one of the items I wanted to experiment with. (I've got till 2013  Grin)

Marc, saw this over on the AK forum and think it's fantastic. Not sure how you do it, but I do have to come visit and peak over your shoulder sometime. Shocked

In the meantime.....I decided that a caboose might need a lantern. I modified a 1/48 scale grant line oil burning headlight by extending the bottom, grinding out the interior/reflector more, adding a wick stem, adding a handle using some brass wire and left over PE pieces. The glass lens was cut from microscope cover glass.


Marc, how do you cut circular disks from cover glasses? I tried using a scriber and plastic ruler with a hole, but my results were not very good. Ragged edges, and lots of broken glass.

Window built and installed, and more dust added. Time to call this one done.

Have you set a date for pick-up by The Mother Ship?  You seem to be "finishing" an unusual number of things lately!

New window and latch detail look great ...

Keep it going!  We'll miss ya when yer gone ...  Grin

.....yes?


FWIW, SBS wise, the window is made from 3-layers of sandwiched styrene, and a piece of microscope cover glass. A .040 wide square the size of the deeded window frame was cut out of a sheet of .010 styrene sheet. Stiles and rails were then cut from .060 wide x .010 thick styrene strip. These were then glued to one side of the previous .010 frame piece...aligning the ouside edges, and giving me a .020 lip on the inside. This assembly was turned over, and a piece of cut microscope cover glass was set into the opening on the .040 frame....held in by the .060 pieces behind it. Another set of .060 stiles and rails were cut and glued in on the top,...thus sandwiching the glass in place. The edges of the assembly were then lightly puttied and sanded to remove/hide any seams, and a fiberglass and wire pencil were ised to create a very light surface grain. Painting was done with a Tamiya acrylic base, oil color for the wood grain, and then some washes of Vallejo acrylics, to try and match the wood color and shading more closely.

Latch hook was scavenged from a Grandt-Line 1/48 scale stock car detail set. Hinge baarrels are .010 styrene rod, and the eyelet is an HO wire lift ring set  (think it was by Detail Associates)
