Murder solved in Glenshire


Job's Modelling

429 views

I have finished my little coastal village diorama (22x14,5 cm)

The cobbled surface is a texture is from Smart Models. I liked the colour of this one for this diorama. With an embossing pen I scribed the individual cobble stones row by row and one by one. I did this free handed, looking carefully to the texture. Every day about 10 ten rows. The visible holes are for the figures. Next job is to paint them.

After I had finished the cobbled quay I glued the cottages in place and made some doorsteps. Now I had to paint the figures. Painting is done with paints from the Citadel and Vallejo range.

The scene is roughly inspired by a short story The Blood Stained Pavement a short story in The Thirteen Problems of Agathe Christie.

And some storytelling to the diorama.

Miss Oliver, the editor of the gets a telephone call from Dermot Craddock of the Middleshire Police. He tell her about a solved crime in a coastal village in Glenshire. Some disappearances of young woman, that were some major news in the past last years, were finally solved. With his information she took place behind her typewriter and wrote an article for the Gazette.”

A dark story! I think I remember Agatha Christie's version, her ability to come up with ideas for almost-perfect murders was always a bit scary :) Nice idea to use her work as inspiration, there will be hundreds of situations for diorama modelling in her books.  

 

Modelling-wise, it's another excellent diorama from you I think. I like how you capture several planes, from the lower steps to the roof top. The excellent cobbles are like a stage, you could show other scenes there too.

Thanks for your comment. For my this brings two things together. My passion for modelling small dioramas and the love for British Crime stories and series.
