High Street 9 – Post Scriptum

Job's Modelling

238 views

Although I had finished my High Street diorama, I gave it an extra scene. I also will add some missing information.

 

I also noticed that I did not publish a picture of the side of the shop. The shop side has some posters from the early 1900’s era.

Wenlock gave the suggestion to add a hot chestnut seller to the scene. So, I bought one by Langley models. I also tried to improve my painting. For this I got some feedback from an employee of a Wargame shop in Utrecht. I was very pleased with his kind support.

 

And a little story behind the scene.

In front of the shop is Mrs Cook with her daughter Elizabeth. Some what further in the street is her elder brother Edmund. He is watching Mr. John Allnutt who sold his hot chestnuts by his barrow. Mr. Allnutt was always very good humoured and could tell some fantastic stories. Edmund hoped that his mother would buy some chestnuts. He likes them with his Christmas sprouts.

I hope you like the result.

 

Comments and suggestions are as always welcome.

 

Kind regards,

Job

Hi Jobs, The diorama looks extremely natural to me and I especialy like the weathering around the base of the building, that's a detail most often forgotton, the chestnut seller is definitely a nice touch.

Thank you.

I always try to create a natural looking diorama. For the buildings I prefer to use the method they use for Pendon. But with these laser cut parts that is not possible. There was small edge at the inside of the pavement which I painted black. With some weathering with pastels I could realise the result.

Wonderful, Job. I think Mr Allnutt has a clever marketing strategy: Tell some tall tales and it will attract customers! 

 

I really like the colours on the dresses (would matt varnish remove the shine maybe?).

Thanks Mikkel. 

I think you have a point about the matt varnish. Wil think of that next time. But …. When it is standing in our living room the colours don't look to shiny. The light I used to make the picture could also be the problem. I have to solve this out.

Thank you for your suggestion and the complement. I enjoyed building and painting the scene.
