  1. Do you have any hair left on your head?? I'd be pulling mine out by the hand fulls! Your "multi-function" dio base is still a great idea, and one that I will steel from you right now! I'm hangin' in there with you, what ever you decide to do.
  2. I think you have come across a great idea. Interchangeable subjects on 1 diorama base! COOL! I do like the idea of a winter scene, and the farmhouse is to well done to not to use somewhere. Of course you would have a totally different scene with out the farm house, but still a nice piece of modeling with or without. I feel for the decision making process, I'm in the same boat here. I look at my stash of kits and think about how much time is left to build all these kits. Better just get on with it, and keep building. Anything you do is going to look great! We are with you on this. Good Luck.
  3. This a really cool experiment Manfred. I'm sure I can use this technique for something, really nice effect!
  4. What a great looking finish on the second test!! Your choice of spiral band material #4 looks really good also. I think you're really on to something here. This should only look a lot better after the primer/paint stage. Let's go, Paint Dept.
  5. I'm partial to #5 myself. It seems to bee just slightly more subtle with the shadows. "As I said, a better impression one will receive only in the primed and painted state and only then can be made a final choice." Time to try a primed and painted test. Nice work to date.
  6. Thanks Manfred! I have these stashed for future reference.
  7. So how is going to work?? Do you roll the test in the flour like bread dough? Do you sprinkle the flour on to it? Do you put the test into a bag with flour and shake it? Inquiring minds want to know.
  8. Hey Everyone, I'm posting today to say that this WIP is still active, altho I haven't worked on the project for a few months now. I'm repainting the house, outside and inside, and packing to move about 40 miles away. I'll be back when we get resettled, with a new man cave and project room. Thanks everyone for watching this project, I'll be back soon.
  9. Really great work on the wall. I like the texture alot. The trimotor looks gorgeous! I think I'll get one. And I can think of someone who might like your wall design very much.
