Job's Modelling's Achievements



  1. Phil thank you for your very useful information. Do you have any suggestion for my drawing and dining room? Also there is in my opinion a large kitchen. And the Brexit makes ordering in the UK much more expensive. Someone wrote that you have to double the price due the tax you have to pay. Mikkel you are right this is not my first attempt . I have made an interior before. But this is really the first attempt to create realistic time based furniture, using furniture textures from the internet and making my own modelling kits. I have to make a lot of furniture for the vicarage. Some one in one of the Facebook groups suggested to create the wall removable so you can see the interior if you want. Will see what I can do with that. My 1950's kitchen in a terraced house in Caroline Street. Made a long time ago. With the knowledge from now we would have done a lot of things different. I remember I was impressed by Limits to Growth of the Club of Rome published in 1972.
  2. I started a vicarage building using a kit from Scalescenes but I was not content with my choice. After some further research on the internet I found a floor plan of a vicarage building, dated 1928. I decided to use this plan as the start for my vicarage. Scratch building is totally new for my, so I have to see if I can manage the building of the vicarage. I also decided to give the building an interior. The ground floor I created in a more traditional Victorian way using planks and rugs. Kitchen, scullery and larder with red quarry tiles and the hall with encaustic tiles. The pantry rooms with a simple brown tiles. I started with internal wall. On one side of the wall is the entrance door to the study and the entrance door to the drawing room. Wall paper of the study is a texture from internet. Next step was the wall between the study and the drawing room. In a description for the study the following items were mentioned: (family) paintings. cast Iron grate, book case. Other items mentioned are a large hardwood desk with a leather top with matching chair. Also twin leather chairs at either side of the fireplace with a small table by the side on which to put drinks or in my case a newspaper. For the club chairs I used the 1:48 kit from Petite Properties that I scaled down. The chairs got several layers of red leather paint. I also made a side table. This is made from some scrap material Petite Properties. The side table is painted with a brown paint from the Citadel range. On the side table is a newspaper. This comes from a kit from Scalescenes. The vicar is a repainted Preiser figure. I made the writing table and the chair using a kit from Fine Scale Building. The furniture is build from thin drawing paper. Although I accept the result for now I have to practice this kind of small modelling. I have not made frequently furniture in 1/76 from card and paper. But putting furniture in all rooms gives me a good opportunity to practice. I think I have to search for the right kind of card. The third wall has an iron-cast fireplace with mantle-piece mirror and two bookcases at both sides of the chimney. Texture are from the internet. I designed the bookcase kit myself using the Scalescenes method. The study is finished for now. Next job is the drawing room. Suggestions and comments are welcome. Thanks for reading and keep safe. Greetings, Job
  3. Thanks for the compliment, Of course you may suggest that. . I think I can add a lintel at both sides of the wall above the door.
  4. My next diorama is inspired by The Murder in the Vicarage. I started to make a diorama plan/map. I started to make the base, and after that I started with the garden wall. I will use the same garden wall texture from Scalescenes ( Brown brick - Garden Wall; TX 52) as I used for Rose Cottage. The texture is printed on a canvas photo paper. Then I searched for a garden door on the internet. The door that I found is downloaded and made to size. The door has a front and back side. The get a door I have fold it and glued the parts together. The braces were cut out separately and glued on the backside of the door to create some more depth. By the try-out I found the colour of the door too bright. I toned the door down with two layers of Citadel Agrax Earthshade. I used a garden wall base from Scalescenes and a picture from Internet to create the garden wall with door. The first part is now finished. Additional weathering will be done when the total wall is finished. Comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks for reading Job
  5. Nice to see these buildings in their environment. Some lovely builds.
  6. 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.
  7. Although I can not use all of your methods, because of my allergy, I love to read your blog. Have to try the method described in "Cottage Modelling for Pendon" to create my own individual windows.
  8. 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.” 1959 august 28 - Scotland Yard - The Gazette.pdf
  9. I enjoyed to read how you have created your Mill. Some useful tips.
  10. This is a nice country station. Can you explain the use of the pipes from the ground which are going above the gutter? For my signs I use mostly Publisher and I save the result as a JPEG and than resize it.
