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

Added the little resin part that comes with the Kit

Image

And in comparsion with the Originalpart

Image

All together to show the size

:notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: thanks for looking !

Hello Guys,
a small update, i received real Stone mats with single Stones ( http://www.ch-kreativ.eu ) for the Pavemant and some Rubber Molds. This Molds are a bit to "crude" more for the Military modeller, but the Rooftiles are a good option, but a bit of Work....

Image

Image

Image

Image

And i played a last time around with the layout.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

For the Sidewalk on the House with Arcades i used the big brown Plates. I carved them to smalle ones, this is very easy but a bit messy. Also i carved 2 Strips of small Tiles to add a bit variation on them, clearly seen on 3rd Pic.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

On the Cornerhouse i added curbstones, made with the Rubbermolds out of plaster. the round "Hole" will hold a little Tree. The Rain Drains are Lasercut Cardboard from greenline, for the Roads i use 2 different size of Cobblestone. To add abit high for the Sidewalks i glue thick cardboard first on the ground, then the Stonemats.

Hello again,
work goes on with thefirst Pavements. First Layer is a heavy Cardboard to elimanate the difference in hight, then a lot of measurment, cutting and gluing. i use the 5 minute Whiteglue from Ponal for this. The Manholes and Storm Drain Gates are lasercut Cardboard and will be later colored, they are not glued in yet.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And one more small sidestory or gag.... :-D

Image

Look at those 2 very tiny slugs in the last row :drool:

Image

i will paint this after my long gone little Cat

Image

and beside the ongoing Race there are other very interesting "Things" ;-)
