After a rethinking and some input from Firends i found a funny pic, so i change the Buildings.

here its the final scene, only a small Church beside the Verlinden House is still missing

Image

Image

Image

a italian Petrolstaion in the 1920', this i want :-)

Image

So i ordered the beautiful Kit from Modelvictoria

Image

Then i change the big Building with Arcades to a smaller one, the "Czech CityBuilding" from Miniart

Image

Sadly miniart makes really big Windows and Doors, so i build them new

Image

Image

Image

Then i make the left Sidewall a bit longer for the Petrolpump

Image

Image

Image

And that is funny, how should this fit :eh:

Image

i will also use a verlinden kit "French Bakery" , its a massive Plaster part, so very heavy. Think i cast it new and hollow, lets see.....

Hello Guys,
after a long rethinking i rebuild the Verlinden Bakery and all Miniart new out of Kapaline Foamboard.
Two Reasons why, the Verlinden is a heavy and massive Plasterpart and the Issue with miniarts way too big Windows/Doors. They didnt fit well also.
I remove the Cardboard from the Foamboard after cutting all Openings, carved and pressed the Stones and cracks with a graficcutter, hard Pencil and a engraving needle. its funn to work with this material, very easy to cut, engrave , pressed and sanded. Lets see how it takes the Paint.
here now some pics, first is "Peppones" Workshop, the Square Opening in theSidewall will be filled with a Sheet of Brickwork and stores the Petrolpump as i posted before :-D

Next one is a small Church, where Don Camillo hold his sermons ;-)
The Bells are originally for Shipmodels, this are real Brass. They would become a wooden Suspension, also a real wood Door will be there.
The Figure is from miniart set "French Civilians"

The next one is a little reminiscence of the Local, http://www.datrombicche.it , where we have a great Time in Siena. Based on the Verlinden plasterrock, it was a bit more Work then the others , but i think it looks not so bad and is way lighter :-D

And in comparsion with the Originalpart
