While thinking of track plans, I started something else.  I like the look of the Alamo next to the tracks but its a little too big.  Upper management would not let me hack on the school project with a razor saw.

 


I got out the blue foam and started to carve my own mission.






Light coat of rattle can primer to etch the foam a little.  Too much it will melt.







Side door.




Poncho is wondering if his sombrero will fit through the door.




I made the wall awhile back after seeing something like it at a Mexican food restaurant. I'm going to build a different wall and make some changes.  Planning a bell tower on the other side.

DAMN NICE! I suspect that if you make a replica of the Alamo, the little old ladies from the daughters of the Republic of Texas (caretakers of the Alamo) will drop by your place with torches and pitchforks! YIKES!!!

Very effective Stephen. Having seen your work and been following Daniel Caso's for a long time, I really should try this foam carving at some time. And you can just smell the decay in that door! Nicely done.

Hi Stephen :wave:


Same as Doug & W.C.G.

DAMN NICE !


I gotta get me some of that foam stuff ...

... but the 'technique' I'd have to work on. :f:


It looks AWESOME !

I guess it's about good design, good marking out ...

... and patience ... LOTS of patience.


More photos please Stephen.

We need to see more of the 'how and what with' jazz.

Great work !!

Stephen,

Very nice!  I especially like that side door, and the wrought iron work on the side wall.

Thanks guys for the kind words.  Daniel Caso's work is inspirational.  I picked his brain a little about Spanish roof tiles and the mold Woodie has.

 










Been working on the front doors.  Still needs hardware and a few more washes of stain.

Are you planning on putting statues on the facade?

All I have is flower pots at the moment.  I haven't found the right size Virgin Marys or Saints yet.

Pegasus makes padres in 1/48 scale:  http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/pgh/pgh7003.htm

At the local crafts store I found a padre that stands about 1.5 inches, or about 5.5 feet in 1/35 scale.  Junipero Serra, father of the California Missions, was on the short side at about 5 feet tall so I think a 5.5 foot tall padre on my layout will work just fine.

Not much to update of late.  I did get around to making the hardware for the front door.

 




I also found a miniature virgin Mary and saint on the bay.  Searched for Catholic pocket statue and came up with these.
