Painting the Town…Update (8/7/17)


A really quick day with one aim, to gut out and remake the bay windows. Last weekend I just wasn’t happy with how it was looking, the butting of balsa, the curvature of the bays. It just looks poor really when I look at the rest of the model. A poor compromise.

So I came back to the studio today, tearing out the bays and making a start on the new pieces that would soon be going in their place. I knew as soon as I removed them it was the right thing to do, more angular and professional looking, in-keeping with the look of the model miniature.

Bay windows gutted ready for something more angular. #workinprogress #cardboard #balsa #modelminiature

Before moving onto fit everything in place, the three pieces of cardboard that boxed in the windows and the gum tape to seal it off. Adding the detail was pretty straight forward with no real problems beyond getting the length of balsa right.

I’m hoping next time to get a tin of primer next time, getting a coat on the model, I’m not sure how many it will take as its a move for me.

    • Yeah I’ve been more observant on this one the bigger the model there’s going to be more scrutiny, if only from myself.
