Hello everybody.

Marc and Gordon are right.
I've been asked to delete the pictures of the last project I've done, for publishing reasons.
As they were all on the same hosting site, i've chosen to delete them from there for ease and time reason, as the build log was shared on other places too.

Sorry, hate to do that, but had no choice.

Have a great day.

Hello gentlemen.

This is a collaborative project between Marc, Gordon and I. As usual, they did all the hard work, and I'm doing the fun one.
I'm very late with this one and must hurry to finish it, but to keep this thread alive and show you some new stuff, here's a quick preview on how it looks.

It's a full scratch built street scene of Mogadishu, Somalia. Right now, I'm doing plaster and concrete texture / effects on the building. As you can see there's still a lot to do.

Thanks for looking.

Alex.

Thank you lads.

Guy > They shipped all I needed. Just like a good e-shop. Cool
Seriously, Gordon & Marc have been so helpful, without them this project simply could not have been done.

That plaster looks superb. All the concern and hair pulling was for nothing Smiley

Don't believe him. He just needed some egginng-on....it was purely in my self interest, so that I could live vicariously through him, and not build a Mog scene myself Smiley

Self interest from me to

Let me " finish" something in white plastic and leave somebody else to have all the hassle with primer, h/spray, paint etc Cheesy

Looks good Alex, you certainly captured that worn plaster/ concrete look

Material is mainly cork and modelling paste, can't say or show too much about this because it's one of the subject of the article, but all infos will be fingers crossed in the next Modeler's Annual. If I'm quick enough and if Russ doesn't become mad at me because of my late Undecided
Marc came with a partially built 1/35 shop in bare plastic with some nice details. So the sub structure for the building is plastic. Gordon came with a scratch build I "ordered" from him and that I'll show later.
The size : The full width of the scene is 13cm, so what's in the picture is something like 8cm width.
