Posts popping up all over the place like cheap condos
In this case, quite literally.
I managed to do a lot of work in hammering out another WIP that has been languishing unfinished for quite some time, another on my sci fi urban buildings.
Like the others, it is a simple box shape with art-deco inspired shapes to break the profile and dood-dads attached to make it look more lived in.
A lot of fiddly measuring at reattaching things today. I really dislike doing guardrails at this point. I did have some sort of plan originally for something like a wrap-around railing for the section that now shows a planter. After my first batch with railing measurements not quite lining up, I scrapped it and did a planter instead. Once I have put on the plaster cladding, and painted it, I will put in some ballast and flock to show that really terrible flower bed so common in bad neighborhoods. My plan is to have nothing but sand, rocks, and weeds in it to show the complete disregard the owners have for it. This patio will have some benches added, just to break up the open space. It will give some opportunities for cover in some sort of game in the future too I am sure.
I went a bit over the top on the pipes for this one. Maybe it means they paid more to have more utilities. Who knows. The next piece started (but not much started) is a 3 storey apartment complex. It will have external stairs and an enclosed entrance on the second floor for cool fire-fight type stuff. It is also a lot more complex and I am not sure where my sketches and measurements sheet went to…something essential to actually finish it.
The plan for tomorrow (if things work out) is to apply the plaster cladding to the outside (which means waiting a while to let it properly cure before the first coat of paint).
To show off scale, I pulled out the model that has become my scale model, Jolie. Although, in this setting she looks more science fantasy and maybe like an extra in Star Wars. And she seems to be either looking in her book like a tourist, or lost in study as she walks around the very drab building. Good choice guess.
Anyways, hopefully this post was inspirational, at least to dust off an old project to finish it.
