Outhouse

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

I knew that you would know Gerald - another superb example of Marcel's work and @ 1:22.5.
Links to Marcel's work have been posted before however many are now broken.
Here's the website showing "Rymenzburger Chnollebahn 1:22,5" where there are 70 photographs.

If you goto Diashow ansehen top left you get the slideshow.

G'day

Brilliant modelling.....looks real....but the figure, ( although good) as always, gives it away I am afraid.

One day I will see a model figure that will be indistiquishable from the real thing.

( Just wish that I was quarter as good as a modeller though ! )

Cheers

Very often real people look much more like carricatures or plastic than the figures in layouts.

Regarding Marcel´s work, I´d ask, is it a painting or a brilliant model?

Have Fun

Lovely model, but where did the figure of Dave Angel: Eco Warrior come from? It's perfect!
