Thanks, Shawn!  The (very unfinished) 1/35 garage has full "electrizical" service ...



Including cords with tiny little plugs ... well, no prongs on this one, cuz it gets stuck into an outlet ... L:



Some of the tools need to be painted ... but at least they're plugged in! :cool:



Of course, there's always some little leftover bit to leave you wondering. L:

Well, we'll get back to the garage at some point ...

Meanwhile, back in the sammich shop ... Eduard (http://www.Eduard.cz) makes a nice set of PRE-FINISHED photo-etchen kitchen details in 1/35 scale.  (How freakin' convenient!) :)  BTW, they also make a set of pre-finished PE flowers ... and those may or may not prove to have the right look ... but that set has pre-finished 1/35 scale butterflies!  Have that set tucked away for future use in the courtyard outside the shop. :thumb:

Oh, and I got the Eduard set from Lucky Model in Japan, because the price is right and they have free shipping on some of the PE items:
http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=36185

(Fairly certain that Santa will be ordering a Mini-Art Gaz AA  truck from them so Mr. Mudgeon can have a tow truck one day ... their price with shipping is cheaper than most places before shipping.)



The glare from the unfinished stainless makes it hard to see some of the details in the overall shot ... but this close-up gives a good idea of the nice finishes on the little plates (which, of course, like an idiot I'll end up refinishing to make one unified set.) :doh:



1/35 scale cheese graters ... whoddathunk?



Wooden spoons ... coasters/trivets ...knives with extra bits to add shape to the handles ... and a few pieces, like frying pans, that are just way TOO FLAT!



Which brings us all the way around to our not-too-glamorous work-in-progress pix for today! :)  Playing with the arrangement of some bits to hang from the bottom of the dish shelf ...



Used a "giant" hammer, some various pieces of styrene rod and some pressed paper board (Task Board) under the pieces and literally POUNDED some shape into the frying pans. Cut the points off a bunch of round toothpicks and used a bunch of those to pound some depth into each of the little muffin tin openings ... toothpick only lasts for one or two muffins!    Then ya gotta turn it over and straighten out the hole thing with fingers, steel rule, etc. Looks like this effort along with a little shading with some paints/inks will give enough depth/shape to these items ...

Stay tuned ... but don't hold yer breath or you'll pass out! :mex:

Not hard to imagine a little place like this having a mish-mash of plates from different sets as found in the Eduard PE set ... but that seemed a little too distracting for this background stuff ... so the plates all got repainted and decaled in a traditional, boring cafe pattern!



Brushed Vallejo mat varnish onto the surfaces where the plates would sit/touch the rack ... it acts as an adhesive, but completely "disappears" (clear & flat). But, it doesn't set very quickly, so ya gotta be a little careful to get things where ya want 'em and not bump 'em too much while working.



Still have to add the smaller plates on the lower shelf ... but will leave some open space so y'all can decide if it's half full or half empty.



The place is ever-so-slowly fillin' up!  The stove backsplash will be replaced with pressed tin panels ... as soon as we can find a scale hardware store that carries them! :bg:

Hey Dallas - that kitchen looks great! I'm still thinking about your backsplash at the range - to duplicate the stamped tin, you might be able to use thin K&S aluminum sheets - they're 4"x10"'x.016". You can score a pattern with your xacto, then randomly sand with some fine grit sand paper. I use those foam sanding blocks - if you sand in a random pattern, you can get a uniform, dull coat. I use this for lots of parts - painted, and sanded finish

I'm also really waiting to see what you do when you get back into the auto shop! The sneak peak above makes me wonder what you're up to

Cheers,

Nick

Dallas,

if you need more bottle brushes in 1:35, they are commercially available, from .016" diameter up to .060"... they call it "interdental brushes" :bg:

Thanks Michael! I showed my Dear-old-Dad some of the recent pix, and he gave me some of those brushes ... they'd work well in 1:24 or larger, but the little one I made works better for 1:35. They'd also make nifty little table-top Christmas trees in smaller scale! :)

Meanwhile, I've had some extra work to do caring for the folks this week ... catching up on business stuff now and looking forward to the next modeling break ...

Dallas-one little thing...the clean plates in the sink (shown above) seem to need some bacon & eggs, chicken fried steak & taters...residue. Ya gots to have some dirty plates in the sink! Imagine some 1:35 left over dinners!

Woodie

Woodie -- Yer right again! And, once again, we're on the same wavelength (scary, eh?) ... that snap was just a scattering of all the "clean" dishes before filling the dish rack ... once that's done and some leftovers are selected to "go dirty" ... well, they'll get dirty! Thanks! :)
