  1. Meticulous work on all fronts as usual...some very clever adaptations of useful materials...and yet another masterclass of advanced building. Respect Ron
  2. Hi mate...I note your 'confused' emoji above following my previous post regarding lighting. I assume you will have a roof on the finished workshop...hence my comment about internal lighting etc. Ron
  3. A tip for you...to make it easier and more flexible for short lengths (1/24)...strip the outer with a pair of wire strippers...then you can keep the inner for other wiring You can usually pull the outer off once you gently cut around the sleeving...for longer lengths. Or maybe use this one.....https://www.componentshop.co.uk/0-2mm-32awg-super-fine-solderable-enamelled-copper-connecting-wire-black.html Ron
  4. Like these Andy.......https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l2632&_nkw=letraset&_sacat=11788
  5. Nice job on the weathering...exactly how I would have done it Ron
  6. Wonderful...you can never beat real sunlight for showing things in their true perspective...however...this does ask another question of you Nick...internal lighting! I have worked with this lady (Jennifer) several times on lighting projects for models...very nice lady...extremely helpful and knowledgeable on all things in miniature lighting....... https://www.smallscalelights.co.uk/product/modern-strip-light-kit I'll shut up now mate Ron
  7. Quite attractive for a Super Freak tho mate She's actually a 'Garage' kit mate...promise you she's no animation LOL https://www.e2046.com/p/13524/&title=darkness-elf-assassin Ron
  8. Hi Nick...glad you like the suggestions For a broom...I would look at the cheap Hog's hair brushes...nice and course for a broom...a cut down flat would work...and usually very cheap. As for drip trays...in many garages of that period a common oven baking tray was used...as did many home mechanics...so doesn't need to be fancy mate Remember...false perspective is created with careful shading and shadowing...using pastels/pigments is the easiest way to do this. As always...your work is intuitive and inspirational. Ron
  9. Another masterclass of updates...with superb results each time adding to the realism. Ron
  10. Well...not really sure where to start Nick...first off I guess...you have captured the feel and look perfectly in my book...sure...it needs more dirt/mess...after all...we are not talking McLaren levels of sterility. Concrete floors were dusty...and held stains from spillages/leaks etc. ...which leads me to suggest using pastels for the dust effects...and enamels for the staining. A couple of minimal extras the scene would benefit from...oil drums (with hand pump)...a broom or 2 with a dustpan and brush...some trays for drained oil and fluids...maybe a few waste bins...just general e
  11. All looks absolutely superb as usual...really does fool the eye into believing it's a much larger scale. Ron
