TOPIC: MoDio European Arch with Base Kit # BM-004:

Re: MoDio European Arch with Base Kit # BM-004: 31 Jan 2011 00:04 #25

Well, I managed to do a little more work on this sweet little base.
Basic paint and some weathering.
All paint was water based acrylic paints.
The bricks were painted with a mix of black and burgundy.
The road was done with teddy bear, coffee late and parchment.
The mossy wash was done with old ivy.
Static grass was placed between some of the stones and in the road.
More to follow.

Well I couldn't leave well enough alone. I've been having way too much fun with this
base.
I thought that it would look great with a door on the archway, so...
It was scratch built from thick balsa wood, cut into strips and braces were added.
I beat it up to give it some age. and painted it with a wash of "DecoArt acrylic (Heavenly Hues) Plaster and Ceramic washes "Blissful Beige"
Overview of new door



Yes I even put hinges on the back so it could open.


Door detail was added (Grandt Line HO scale 2 1/2" nut - 6" square washer), which were painted with an acrylic "Folk Art" Metallic Antique copper.


The door was then given a heavy coat of pastel chalks dusted and mashed into the wood. (black and rust around the nuts/washers).




Again I placed a tank and some figure for scale reference... Hope you enjoy it.
I have a dio in mind for this, but it will have to wait a little bit, so I can get back
to some of the group builds I have neglected.







Num, This was a lot of fun to make and as you can see I'm still having fun putting different vehicles and such on it to take pictures. Thank you again for sending it to me and letting me do a review of it.
Shawn

Dear Shawn,
Seems like you having fun a lot....I'm glad to see and welcome.
I plan to send another base (may be a biggest one) to you but I'm very busy during this time because a new diorama shop in Bangkok I have with my partner is not stable yet.

Looking to see your update soon...I'm also fun to see your base as well.

Num,
Thank you, Glad you are enjoying my updates too...
No worries on sending another base. April told me that you are working
on getting your stuff into that Diorama shop, thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup
Good Luck I hope that it does well. Is there a web site that we can put
out so people can either see all the stuff in that shop, or get information
on how to get there or order from there?
