Roope & Voss premises


Job's Modelling

643 views

The first edition of the warehouse of Roope & Voss is demolished.

 

I have decided to make Northall part of Greater London. In one of the books of Ruth Rendell inspector Wexford is ‘recovering’ in Kenbourne Vale, Postal district W15. Northall will be Postal district W16.

 

After this a wanted to give the premises of Roope & Voss a more London look.

I found a nice description of a famous warehouse in Wapping High Street. I used this description to create a guide for the design of the definite version of Roope & Voss.

Using the same basic design I started to build the warehouse.

 

Creating stone surroundings was new for me. It also took a lot of time.

After finishing the cottage I liked to give the doors of the ware house a more ‘derelict’ appearance. With a picture from internet and a bit of working with Office publisher I created this doors.

Then I started with the card building of the ware house.

 

I hope the picture below will give you a first impression of how the premises of Roope & Voss Wine and Spirit Merchants will look.

I still have to do some windows before I can show you the final appearance.

Also have to give some thoughts how to create a believable inside of the warehouse at the other side, were I have the open doors.

 

Regards,

Job

Hi Job. Aha, so Inspector Wexford now enters the scene! Will he run into Morse I wonder?

 

Those doors are excellent! I don't think I have asked before what glue you use for joining card and paper? I am tempted to try out some of your methods and although I am not allergic (yet!) I like to keep the toxic stuff to a minimum.

Hi Mikkel.  Both creators of  these detectives frequently mention the railways. By inspector Morse the railway between Oxford and London. In the books of Ruth Rendell the railways in and around London. What I like in the books of Ruth Rendell is the use of social themes. 

 

I use mostly common Pritt glue and PVA. The only thing I do different is that I don't glue A4 size prints on card. I always cut out the printed parts first and glue them then on the required card. For very difficult small parts I found a solvent free contact glue, but I only use that if there is no other possibility. 

One of the reasons it works out well this way is maybe also  because the temperature of our house: always between 15 (night) and 17/19 degrees C. (day/evening). This because my skin starts to react by temperatures above the 20 degrees C.

 

Nice to hear you will try out some of my methods.

Hi Job, thanks for this. Pritt and PVA are easy enough to obtain so that sounds easy. I might try this out on an alternative backscene I have in mind for my goods depot. Thanks!

I'm looking forward to see your background. 

I use a good quality of drawing paper for printing and don't forget to seal it with a water paint varnish. I do this outside on a dry day with not to much wind when I have finished a  building. This isn't healthy if you do it inside.
