I beg to differ - it looks like someone has just finished in the shower and it's all steamed up - it looks great - and incredible for OO gauge!


Now that is something I hadn't thought of, I will have to add a figure in a towel leaving the room. thanks!

hello all, I have got the bulk of the first master bedroom done,
The wardrobe you see very little of is a basic one with no interior and not even a back or side where it butts against the bedroom wall.

Checking the bed will fit
Image

The bed (king sized) is made from plasticard
Image

the completed bed frame
Image

a load of pillows under construction
Image

Bed without duvet (as before the mattress is several pieces of card stuck together and trimmed to shape)
Image

The other large piece of furniture is a dresser and includes my next attempt at a mirror, this time made from a polished sheet of aluminium. As with the rest of my models the bulk of it is made from corn flake boxes.
The basic shell
Image

The open draw the clothes are painted kitchen roll
Image

Painted
Image

Mirror and handles on, clutter added to the top.

You continue to impress with the outstanding level of detail you manage to incorporate into such tiny scenes. The bed frame and the wardrobe look especially good - the colour of the latter is just right in my opinion.

thank you guys that is really nice of you. To be honest the small size of each bit of work is a blessing as it allows me to do the best work i can consistently across the model.
all of the wood work which is supposed to be pine is made using a base coat of Humbrol 118 with a drybrushed layer of 69/118 mix to give the effect of grain.
this isn't really worthy of an update post but i am quite proud of it.
added phone on charge.

Now that's the first time I've ever seen that modeled! How did you get the cable to 'hang' convincingly and what is it made from?

its a single bit of wire from a multi strand speaker cable, I painted it with acrilic and bent it to shape after gluing the plug and phone into place to get the 'draped' look

You are as nutty as a fruit cake !!!!
And I love it - Cav winning, was that a stage in the TDF ?

You know I'm beginning to love modelling - Just for the sake of modelling
and this is just brilliant ....... anyone for fruit cake ?

And to be different, something railway related. its a War-well from plans published in Model Rail in May 2005 if anyone wants I will scan the page at some point.

the bogies are made from laminated plasticard, currently running Alan Gibson Wheels, the bogies are short and flexy enough that it work with p4 provided you add some weight and the design is surprisingly robust. I need to sort out decals for ID plates etc.
