The George Inn

Here is update on my latest project. I have finished the pub, but there are some small things to do. Pictures are some great judges!

 

The pub is, as said in my latest blog entry, a Petite Properties kit. I have used textures from the internet (the lower brick part), Scalescenes and Clever Models for the pub.

It took a lot of time to put all the small paper parts into the frames. For the stucco I made my own PDF file with the right size for the stucco parts. Also, the chimney’s needed some extra care.

 

I always work on a small A4 plateau which can be used on almost every table.

The Austin A40 woodie is from John Day Models. It is easy to assemble, but hard to paint. A lot of little details. Paint is from the Citadel (main colour and chrome) and AK range (tyres and woodwork).

The side shown on the picture is finished. I still have to do the other side and the back lights. When I have finished all the painting, I can finish the model.

Suggestions, comments etc are welcome.

Thanks for reading.

Good to see you posting Job.

 

The pub looks excellent. I am especially impressed by the colouring of both the building and A40. It is spot on I think. I can see how fitting all the paper into the framing must have been a tricky job! The result is really convincing though.

 

I can't remember if you have ever said what printer you are using for the textures?

Super job on the pub.  I have one of the Petite Properties buildings on my layout.  It was very simple to put together, but the finishing takes somewhat longer!

Hi Job, Nice to see that your still creating these wonderful dioramas in a Jack Nelson style, Its been quite a while since I've been on the forum, but it's nice to see some old faces.

Thanks for the compliments.

 

I use a HP ENVY PHOTO printer. You have to use the best settings when printing the textures. Most important is the quality of the (photo) paper. I know now that another paper can give a totally different result.

I have now build several Petite Properties kits. And yes, you can put them easily to put together. But finishing them off with paper textures takes more time. Have a look here for some shops:

 I find it a great compliment that you compare my diorama's with those of Jack Nelson. I always found them inspirational just as your work.

Very attractive model of the pub - I especially like the chimney!  I suspect the car is actually an A70 Countryman - an uncle of mine had one that I remember riding in the back as a kid, long before safety legislation required seat belts etc.  It'd be nice to see some close-up views, so that we can appreciate the textures you have created.

Thanks Job. 

 

I wonder who the Austin belongs to. The landlord?

I have an idea. But you have to wait for that one to a later entry,

Thanks for the compliment.

The chimney was part of the Peptite Properties kit, but I used a picture of a Tudor chimney to finish it in another way. 

You are right about the car. For the colour choice I used this reference:

To answer your question about the textures I have to write an entry. I have also to write about the way I create them and the (photo)papers I use. As mentioned in my answer to Mikkel: the right choice of (photo)paper is essential to get the right texture.

But this may answer it partly:

Roof - Scalescenes texture printed on 170 gr matt photopaper

Stucco - created from a picture using Publisher to get the right colour and printed on 170 gr matt photopaper. Glued on an artist paper to get the right high.

Brick work underside pub - picture from the internet, made to scale; printed on a high quality canvas paper

Chimneys: textures from Scalescenes printed on a high quality canvas paper.

Interesting too see the uninspiring colour choice from Austin - the early 50s were a very drab time.  I can't imaging a car manufacturer offering four different shades of grey now!

 

I'm sure your knowledge of the characteristics of different papers will be of interest to many on here.
