De Ja Vu Competition. "Country Local"

Postby Terrier » Fri Aug 10, 2012 2:34 pm

Looks like i might be the first of us to pop a thread up for this competition. I have decided, and again with the space constraint of 2ft by 2ft, revised my idea for this competition, and it is to recreate the image below, in 00 gauge. That is all for the moment, other than to wish everyone the best with their entries and to thank Hiffano for bringing about this competition for us all to get stuck into.

Top Stuff!

"Country Local" painted by Don Breckon.

I'm quite excited to model the interesting bridge, the pub and finding an austin 5/6/7? and what looks like a ford? roadster?? and going to try my hand at making some figures!? :shock: fitting this scene within 2 square foot is going to be a challenge, but i think i can juggle the shape of the base to fit it all in. fingers crossed.

Looks like an MG to me, a TA or TC, probably; they're pretty much indistinguishable anyway so either would do.

Cheers Steve, yeah, i been trying to match up the grill with different cars, would be nice to get it spot on, but if not, so long as it carries the 'feeling' of the painting, then that'll be cool, got a few months, so anything is possible!

The Base!

I've found an old rubbishy painting/artwork thing i did years back, that is approximately 2ft by 2ft, and am going to work up from this in polystyrene foam probably.

And the rolling stock, it's everyone's favourite! an Airfix 14xx and one of the two B set coaches i have, one by hornby (one shown i think?) and the other is an old dapol jobby.

Have glued down (not dry yet) polystyrene sheeting onto the base, and from looking at the painting, or a copy of it, i have marked out the main features, just quickly with a pen. Good news is that it would seem that the scene will fit into the space with some success. :)

Now if it'd had been this rather than some GWR rubbish I might have had a go! (Same artist!)

BTW I tend to agree that it is some sort of MG, the other car could be any 20s/30s car, best to look up some Vintage Car photos, they all look the same to me... :lol:

Looking forward to seeing this. I do believe it has been done before a chap in railway moddler a few years back based his layout on 3 of Don Breakon's paintings including this one it looked pretty good.
