It is plaster + acrylic paint. It is brpouw because couldn't find the black. :cry:

This will be a small water stream joininmg the river...

Here will come a wooden bridge...

ImageIMG_0017 (112) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Next, ...well, I don't know. The only thing I know is that will come and will have a staircase and then a little wooden bridge...

Here will come the little wooden bridge...

ImageIMG_0021 (99) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Here the water...almost still at the top and suddenly falling at the foreground...

ImageIMG_0023 (96) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Don't worry, the ugly colour-plaster is just to fill all the gaps and offer a bottom to start modelling the river and the water..

(Also the colours of the stone walls and bridge will be less wild and lighter later.)

Next..., well, no idea yet but I already dislike the platform so is going to go and it will be simply a path to a small beach...

I love the progress on the diorama. The bridge is great and now the water has started flowing under it. Outstanding as usual Daniel.

Side note:

This fellow lives in Amsterdam and has biked from Vancouver Canada to the tip of South America. He bought a couple of ‘cabins’ in the Italian Alps. Check the structures! Amazing stone work and STONE roofs made from huge slabs.

Thank you, Ken.

The lucky Dutch fellow is doing what I would if had the resources in money, age and health!!!
Such stone buildings with also stone roofs are common around the borders between France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria. The still pure beauty of lost organic architecture.

You could build an excellent castle using those techniques.

But where do you find the space to put all your amazing scenes?

Yes, I could build a castle but I won't. Not my cup of tea.

Where do I put what I build?

Well, for me the question is not 'where' but WHY would I keep them if what I like is to make, not to hold?

If I am lucky I get unexpectedly a message or a call from someone wanting to buy my work.
If I am not that lucky someone (me again) will be very lucky in a different way and enjoy chopping, throwing away what is useless and joyously recycling in new projects what can be recycled. :)

None of the bridges is glued in place yet. The little one has got it's deck and must still get a one side railing.
The big one must still get it's deck glued but fiurst I want to work out the bracing at the underside.

What fun!

I think Daniel actually makes the buildings out of bread. When he is done with them, he eats them. Roofs are gingerbread probably. 8)

You're right, Ken. Todasy I bought at the supermarket exactly that as modeling fuel:

ImageIMG_0018 (109) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Back to the workbench, this image is making my life a bit more complicated now...

ImageIMG_0186 (8) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

...but I'll find a way through it.



ImageIMG_0001 (169) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

3mm diagonal blind holes...

ImageIMG_0002 (149) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Bamboosticks...

ImageIMG_0003 (146) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0005 (145) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

The reason for the Bamboo sticks is that I fporgot to make the short suporting pieces of wood curved, following the long beams so I glued them in place holding them tight with klamps. But also if the glue do it's work fine, I don't trust that in the middle of the wild dance of my workplace so now the Bamboo will take care of it.

Not dificult to disguise it, specially if one knows it will be at the underside in the shadow area of the bridge and no one will notice...

ImageIMG_0004 (148) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0006 (141) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0007 (139) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0008 (144) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

I alet the deck boards final colouring & sanding for once they are glued in place. That way the strokes of colour and very softly sanding will make the traces of horse, carts and cars evident... (...I hope!)

The braces are more or less in place but there is a lot of work before gluing the bridge in place. At first each brace must rest on a stone protruding from the pillar but also I want to add some details as bolts/sq. nuts and some iron plates bolted in some (not all) joins...

ImageIMG_0009 (130) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0011 (142) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0012 (127) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

It's just for the photos. Nothing glued yet.

ImageIMG_0013 (113) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

ImageIMG_0014 (104) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

I see now I am going to make a new deck with thicker boards to fit the thickness of the transversal beams holding the febce's post in place...

Those days there was no internet, no TV, radio was only for the 'healthy' and probably terribly boring so the the youth had no much to do and the little bridge was a good place to meet and have fun. That, of course, left traces on the poor little bridge...

ImageIMG_0071 (38) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Yes, the bridge will get more weathering and a less modern tourism look once the colour work if done and the weathering can be done.
