Hi Alwin.

I like the finished look on your wall,

and especially where it looks like moss has been growing.

:apl:

Hi Alwin  :wave:


I agree with Kevin !  :thumb:

Great 'micro detailing' ! !  :cool:


This is the kinda thing that really helps peoples modelling ...  :)

... the finish on something ordinary & easily available, like foam-sheet.

Certainly the sort of thing I would like to know, when reaching for paint etc.  :shocked:





The 'crack' effect works really well with the foam-sheet also ... & nice weathering !  :thumb:


Good to see ^^ these Posts here Alwin ... without giving the game away on the whole  TOP SECRET  model !  :Salute:





I'm HOOKED !  :doh:


5 Mooses ... with big coffees & sticky-tape ! !   :old dude:


:java::moose:  :java::moose:  :java::moose:  :java::moose:  :java::moose:  :dt:

Thanks guys,

Because of the heat over here I haven't done much modeling the last two weeks.


I have an idea on what I can show next but that took some time to prepare.

Stay tuned!

Heat ?

It's 105(F) and 27% humidity in San Bernardino.

My layout is outside,
so it's kinda hard to keep the sweat out of my eyes while working on it.

Just saying... If anyone's interested.

Finally an update.

The contest was in October.
But I had a house move right after,
so didn't have much time to post anything.

The voting is only by the visitors.
Most of the time they appreciate other things than I build.
My diorama wasn't even by the best eight (out of 25).

But here are some photo's.
I can show work in progress photo's of the loco or air compressor,
if someone is interested.













































If someone is interested in the other diorama's:

The second post dated 31 October has the list of prize winners.
The third post of 31 October has photo's of all the diorama's.

Hi Alwin,

I am especially impressed by the air compressor.
Like the real thing !

If I am allowed a little creative critic, the wheels look a little flimsy,
something more substantial would make in more sure footed.


BTW, thanks for the FB link. 

Some interesting dioramas,
like the boat on the clear resin cube.

Hi Alwin  :wave:


I too am also totally compressed by the impressor !  :P


The whole effect is one of those 'I can't believe it's 1:43' moments ...  :shocked:

... seems to rival some bigger scales, like Gn15 or 7/8ths for detail.


I actually find it hard to believe your diorama is confined to an 'A4' area.  :bow:


Great photos as well & nice to see all that texture, with sunlight shadows.

You have got some super angles & views, with awesome close-ups.


The only thing I don't like about your 'competition modelling' ...  :old dude:

... is that we don't hear from you for a YEAR ...  :time:

... whilst you beaver away, as a model railroading hermit ...  ???

... SWORN TO SECRECY ! ...  :Salute:

... until the great unveiling 12 months later !!  :time:

Mmm ...  :f:



" I can show work in progress photo's of the loco or air compressor,

YES PLEASE !  :thumb:

I'm sure I'm not the only one ...

... who would love to see construction & painting pics. etc.


It must have been fun, designing the diorama concept as well.  L:

So many possibilities & a difficult choice perhaps ...

... of what to include in the final scene.


:java: :moose: :dt:


Si.

Lee, Si and Gerold, thanks for the compliments.

I thought I had more photo's of the compressor but not so much.

And they are also a bit blurry.




















The tank itself was made of aluminium foil.
Endcaps were made of the side of some HO pulleys I didn't use anymore.
They were a perfect fit with some round edges.

Wheels, motor driveshaft and fly-wheel are from watch parts.
I bought a sack full of all kind of different watch parts a long time ago,
with the idea that they could be handy one day.
Well, this was the first time I used them.
The outside of the wheels is little ribbed.
Originally they were sprocket-wheels which I sanded down a bit.

The cooling ribs are parts of a screw.

Other parts are made of wood dowel and block,
copper/brass wire, plastic leftovers, parts of a sprue.
For round parts I use sprue's alot.
Often they have all kind of different diameters.

The air hose and power cord (not in the above pictures)
was made of solder wire.


For paint.  Painted it all green.
The cooling ribs did get some dark wash,
to accent the ribs a bit more.
I think I gave the upperside some dusty powder.


Well, that's it for the compressor.

Alwin

A great model.

Thanks for the breakdown of what it is made from.

You have given me a lot of inspiration to make one for myself.

:2t: :2t: :2t:
