If you stare long enough, there's a little fly that darts in and out of that window occasionally ...

And, I suppose he's modeling this in a rather contemporary state of decay ... cuz you don't see color photos in old newspapers ... but dang, that zig-zag newspaper does look right.

Actually, newspapers always have been in color. Human life was in black and white until the 1980s. -- ssuR

I was so impressed by the vines (well .. and all of Marcel's work of course) that I did a little research on the Birch 'leaves'. Posted to a model railroad blog. There's a link to another blog on the 'leaves'

Now thats cool. 
My mind just went a little bit nuts though, given I have about 6 of those trees in my yard... and I started thinking about how many individual leaves are laying out on the lawn right now...and started thinking how they could be painted quicker than individually...and started thinking about how to glue them all in place individually...and  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Grin

Always inspiring to see some new Marcel artistry...

Cheers,
Dan

Dallas, he prints the newspaper on "cigarette paper". Now you know what to do with all those old rolling papers from the '70s...

The patience needed to sort out, prep, paint and apply those birch seed parts is amazing. I wonder if DaKra Dave could make leaf patterns, or maybe complete vines like these? Twisting the leaves and then applying AC would give it a 3D look.

John --

Plus Model already offers lazer cut paper leaves sized for 1/35 scale:
http://www.milminwh.com/plus_models.htm

Joe Fix offers some organic materials ... first one looks a lot like the birch seeds ... which might be handy for those who don't have the patience or opportunity to gather them:
http://www.milminwh.com/joefix_p1.htm

Aber and others produce photo etched metal sets with all the leaves on the vines, ready to twist and paint, etc:
http://aber.net.pl/detal/desc/vine_064191217/

And look at the "Green Line landscaping" items here for laser-cut paper leaves, plants, etc:
http://www.fredericus-rex.de/shop2010/index.php

There's tons of stuff out there ... I'm looking forward to getting into the "outside, down-low" part of my project (one of these days) ... it'll be a challenge for to approach some of these materials as a "newbie" ... but the materials for some really neat scenic effects are there ...

PS -- A lot of the sites are international, if you want, you can search ebay for 1/35 leaves, plants, vines, flowers, etc, etc to give you an idea what's out there.  Then find the maker's name to search for on-line vendors.

Cheers,
Dallas

Here you go , Dallas , as you're a relative new boy you may not have seen this post I did as part of my "Deutz Display Diorama" thread from last year . Lots of sites , mostly European, to wander through .




Here are a few websites to waste some time on .

   www.barrule.com ( Antenociti's Workshop)

   www.scalelink.co.uk

   www.modellers-warehouse.com.au

   www.model-scene.com

   www.polakmodel.com

  www.realityinscale.com

  www.tasca-modelllismo.com

  www.accurate-armour.com ( look in products , then Armour Distribution , then modelling supplies, then in Model Finishing . Long winded , or what ? )

  Hope this is of some interest .

Thanks Nick!  I'm aware of some of the materials that have been used in the larger-scale dioramas and really looking forward to getting into the scenery ... appreciate the extra links & resources.  Will also have to have a look back thru your thread(s) when that gets closer.

Cheers,
Dallas

Just beautiful Marcel!

I love the combination of wood and masonry. Great texture and colors.
