I decided to take a break from working on Captain America to finish off a few terrain projects that weren’t finished.
The most work was spent on the shop. As I was going for a corner store type building, so the signage and adverts are designed to reflect that look.
The dumpster was the first of possibly many to come. I may go back with stencil type lettering to give it company name.
The biggest new piece for this terrain is the use of plastic windows. As my WIP showed previously, I cut down to the paper on the outside on the inside of the walls. This gave enough room to glue in the plastic sheets. Prior to gluing them in I attached the flyers and posters to the inside of the “glass”. As a final tough, I did a wash with brown to give the windows a dirty, streaked appearance to fit in. I also did throw in a rolling door which is new too, but not really much of a step up. Not as visible due to a bit too much light is the wash of grime and rust pools I did on the roof and walls.
The other two buildings are no major changes from my other buildings in this style, aside from the inset piping. I like how that looks and have started to incorporate it into the other buildings I have started.
Also getting finished was the first bus/transit stop. After some back and forth, I decided against the plastic windows. Partly because I am not 100% on how it would look. The other part being on how sturdy it would be.
As an action shot, today I demonstrate why Bruce stopped taking the bus to work…just too frustrating.
A short post today, but hopefully inspirational. If nothing else, it might give you that nudge to try raising your projects to the next level with the little details.
