I envy you for your perseverance.
:yeah:

But be fast!
In some edges the weed start to grow.
Maybe to stop the running water will help.

It all look so good, old and worn out !

Hello Guys :-D
Small Update, all the Shutters are done, very much and hard hard Work . The bad Verlindencopies are warped, Bubbles everywhere, the Miniart ones must be cut down to fit, between the Slats much of exess Plastic, Seamlines and so on....and i added somthing like a handle or locking mechanism aut of Wire and Pins.
Next Step would be the Streetlights, with some "Glass" , these are from Miniartparts. The Wallmountings are nice, but only one Side engraved....

Nice looking city you have growing here. Lots of nice details add that realism we all search for. Good luck with the lights, I'll be fiddling with some myself on a new project so let me know how they work out for you.

Hello once more :-D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

So the Streetlights work, i added some "Glass", grinded Clear Plastic.

Image

Image

A Friend give me the Idea to Light the " deep Rooms on the Right. So i build out of Scrap and a Needle the then very popular, Bankers Table Light and a bigger Floorlight. Inside them a very very tiny SMD LED do the Lightig.

Image

Image

Image

Image Image

Image

Image Image

Image Image

I remove the Wooden Roofconstruction, i was not happy with , also with the Mould and casting from Js Modelwork. I buy Resin Roofings . So i can take some better Pics of the Rooms.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Here will take some Furniture place

Image

Outside i added the typical Clothes line, once again sonme scrap Parts for the Hinges and Plusmodelresinparts.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As i wrote before , iam not happy with the Rooftilecastings. The Js Modelworks mould is a 2 Partaffair, i didnt make them equally thick. And the Mould is straight, not Conocal. So a try a Verlinden Part. After 10 Colors and Washings , i like it ;-)

And something funny, a Adverisment for Magneti Marelli from 1930, found on a Auction in the www.
