Hey guys, no rest here....! Grin

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 Grin. 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.

Holy Crap!...your details in the first two images are absolutely stunning!. Gorgeous paint work.

Can you tell me a buit more aboutyour painting approach, and what you used to do your wood staining on the ladder and the work-bench top. Also your colors/coloring for the tires please.

I really look forward to what this project will look like.

I wouldn't worry about the south wall..I think a simple, well modeled wall can be beautiful, and it can offer a nice counterpoint to the busier walls. You can always add a small window at the top of the stone, just under the wood...for a bathroom or such. and you can always add the power and telephone lines draping/pulled across the wall surface. Maybe a water or drain pipe coming out of the ground and going through the wall.

Looks like you will be having to do a cement mixer  Tongue Grin

I have already sat in front and looking whether there is now reality or model. Madness, as you realize the model implementation!
I agree with Marcs appeal, please tell us more about the realization and your many tricks to achieve such a realistic look!

And I thought it would be hard for you to be more realistic than the Krakow Garage. Stepping into a larger scale certainly fits you well, most excellent work on everything so far. I am curious about the skull on the post. Does this exist somewhere on the old man's property (wink).
