Notroh's Feb 2015 competition Thread

Postby Notroh » Fri Jan 23, 2015 6:45 pm

Hi

Late as usual!

I am struggling with a building for a part of Trouve and have decided on an homage to Jacques Tati.

The house that starred in the film Mon Oncle and hopefully the garden:

Watch the film if you can, it's hilarious!

So let's see if I manage to complete on time!

That's an incredible looking building to model. Excellent choice sir. I hope to build an Art Deco building or two for my layout but that's for another months competition.

It's an amazingly quirky building, I love it!

Guys,

I can assure you that the fish fountain will be purely ornamental - even I am not mad enough to attempt that

Or am I?

Very funny! I have started the drawings.

I think I might actually struggle to finish, as the four letter word is a bit hectic at the moment, meaning I am going to be away a fair bit.

Anyway, where's your entry?

I think the idea of a competition to get armchair modelers or new modelers started on something physical is very good - it's certainly a declared aim of the new editor of the N Gauge Society Journal for instance - the end effect, not the method. A competition amongst a handful of seasoned veterans doesn't necessarily achieve that, especially if all that gets photographed is the finished article.

Quite honestly I don't think I have anything to offer the competition. So I have no entry - just following the threads.

Hi,

Well I had a bit of a go at the weekend, it gives a view as to what it may look like and the general layout of the garden:

But as you can see, much filing and filling to do! Plus that blue on the large window is too dark.

The only thing that will get done during this week, I fear, will be a few coats of varnish on the pond, anytime I pass.

Wow, what a start and February hasn't even appeared yet. You have really captured the essence of the building already with the early components in place.

I expect an extra special result now, as you have a week's headstart lol.

I believe one person has finished their project though bar painting so they'll need a new project.
