Here´s the Thing built with a critique of the kit;

In that scale I'm not interested anymore! Good review Paul! :thumbup:

Referring to the Parthenon Kit!
The Roof is Shambolic! :shock: :shock: :shock: Whoever designed it was totally confused 100%.

I know for certain,that i would be totaly confused 200% trying to put that pile of plastic together.
:read: "Very true BB."_____ :cowboy: " YES i Second That."______" :-D Gee,Thanks Guys."

As for my ruins,which are not the Parthenon,
or indeed any other remains that still stand,lean,flop or fall,
i need no roof. Great! :-D
So everyone can see past whats left of the columns and right through and out the other side.
One can even peer way down from on high ,and imagine the roof if there is a liking to do so.
i know In my minds eye,
it is the scene that i will set up within the building that is the important factor of the whole project.
Which is to be a setting for another Tall Tale! :-D Have fun.BB

Always Aim to Shock

( Another Temple 4 Another Time & Place. )

The Wash made from Acrylic Dark Green Paint has been allowed just to run in its natural course down each statues. It will dry much lighter.

Another Brighter Green Wash to be applied in a similar way with a smaller brush,and the effect though quite radical which i wish to create will be finished. Then its down to constructing several sets for story telling. BB

Hi everybody,
I just came across this site here - slightly off topic, but it's about columns and stuff, too: http://www.mattsimmonds.com/gallery_1.html
Absolutely fascinating. No idea about the scale(s), but some of this work might actually be populated by some of our beloved 1/72 figures ...
