Slowly progress on the Alfa 8c Airfix. Added Resincopies of the Pyrokit Fenders, much sanding....

Image Image Image

The pyrokit Alfa 6c is a bit further. I added on Both scratchbuild vents /Resin Copies on the cockpit sides. Here also a oilreservoir. Fenders cutout and much sanding.........
Image Image Image Image Image

On the SSKL i detailed the Front Brakedrums a bit, the rear Ones need some Putty. They are originally intended to show the back row of Spokes.
And i build Lights for the Registrationplates out of scrap Etchparts, cutdown Pins and Brasstube. Later there will be a SMD LED to light this up. Also in the dashboards ;-)
build a new Box and Oil or Water Canister for the SSKL and extra Cooling grids

Anything with a Bugatti in it gets my attention, it's just such a wonderful looking car. Actually all of these old cars are pretty special and it looks like you are tuning them up to full racing trim.

this is getting very interesting. :yeah:

Hello to all !
hope you are all safe and Healthy ! I have used the Coronalockdown to build Details paint a bit ;-)

Started with model Victorias Petrolstation, build up like a photo from Siena , 1930.
Image
Image Image Image Image

And then the Paintfun begin with Peppones ( does anybody knows the Name ;-) ) First a very light Gray, then dufferent Shades of Yellow and orange, Washings and so on. All done with Acrylics, the Foamboards dont like Oils.....
i added some Prints, found in the WWW and Windows, Doors and Shutters from Miniart, cut down to fit and detailed with Metalrod etc etc.

Next Steps are the Detailing for the Rooms because this House will be open at the back . Its a Bunch of cut to Fit Miniart, Verlinden, Plusmodel and Eduard etchings .

First the Workshop or Office, nothing Special, only Scratchbuilded Wallmounted telephon.

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

Next step was the kitchen, the Verlinden Stove is altered to a Gasfired One with small Copperrod and some Waste Plastic.A little but very lovely Detail is the Coffeemill.

I had forgotten but will follow again

Many Greetings to Austria

Beside the Church i place a Doublehouse. Originally i want to use a Verlinden Plasterbuilding, but this Thing is 1.way to Narrow, more for 1/48 and 2. heavy as a Rock. So i build this new, also Foamboard. Floors are Carved Plastic, the Tiles are only for Photosurpose, i make new ones. The Osteria and Caffeteria are based on real ones , the " Da Trombicche " in Siena, very nice ! and the "Il Cantuchio" in Castellina in Chiant, also very nice and both have good Food and Wines :-D :-D :-D

On the left the Original Verlinden, right the New One

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


To see if the Colors are not too bright i placed it on the base, think its good.

Image

Image

Image

The Front for the Osteria , made out of Balsawood, added some Advertisments from this Timeperiod and a Menucard.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And i cannot resist , i added a little Joke. In one of the Don Camillo Movies, there is a Cartoon painted on a Wall, it says "Freshly Painted". This is Restored and can still see in Brescello, where this Movies made. I painted it Free Hand with a Fineliner.

Next Step are all the Floors. I made them with carved and scratched Evergreen Sideboarding. From Miniart comes the Dark ones , the small Room between the Roofs will be changed to a Bathroom.
Floortiles for the Loacals carved Plasticard.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

For the Furniture i used Sets from Plus Model, very massive "sprues" and altered Miniart Parts.
The Typewriter is a small Scratchbuild.

Untill waiting for some Ideas how to finish the Rooms, i started the Painting on the Doorway. This is also Carved foamboard and Part of a Verlindenkit.The Verlindenpart raised about 1cm from the Bottom, the Doors are too Narrow for 1/35, with a temporary Mold and plaster.

Image

Doors where made with Balsawood and Matshsticks, the Windows are H0 Parts

Image

Much work is done, but much more is waiting :-D
