Job's Modelling's Achievements



  1. Hi Mikkel, thanks for your supportive answer. I'm glad I found something that I like. The shop I buy from is King Games, Urhøjvej 32, 4480 Store Fuglede in Denmark. Gave me some good support when I started, and they have a good collection of figures. I like their Dunkeldorf range. Here is picture with their female blacksmith situated in the diorama I'm building this moment: The other figures are from a 3D supplier in the Netherlands. One kind of paint that is useful to use in OO-gauge, I think, are the Contrast Paints from Citadel. Just give a colour a try. I use them now frequently. Wish you a good modeling year and hope you can go the UK this year. Thanks for your support. Greetings, Job
  2. I know you have not heard from me from a long time. The Brexit was a breaking point for me. Ordering from British small suppliers became to complicate and expensive. Because I want to model, I searched for something new. I have always been interested in fantasy stories like the Lord of the Rings. But the Warhammer figures always show the most of them in a fighting position. My wife does not like that for my modelling. After some search on the internet, I found a Danish shop selling their own range of figures. My wife likes them also. I ordered some to try out and made my first fantasy diorama: a butcher shop. After painting some fantasy figures, I was not satisfied with the result. At some point I joined the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy. It helped my to improve my painting. He also has a monthly painting challenge. I decided to participate in this challenge. In the pictures an overview of my entries. I’m glad, I found something to keep modelling. I still enjoy creating dioramas and small scenes. I will thank everyone who has supported me in my period on the RM web. I wish everyone a good new railway modelling year. As always suggestions and comments are welcome. Kind Regards, Job
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  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'm glad I had a look at your Farthings entries today. This one is lovely. Like to see the pictures of your layout.
  10. Love this kind of approach. Sometimes we get surprised by the results.
  11. A healthy and Good New Year. Keep safe. Loved the pictures in this entry.
  12. I finished my row of cottages. I used the kit T019 Row of Cottages from Scalescenes. I used the 2 kits: the TX 07 aged brown brick and the TX47 Coursed rubble. The Scalescenes textures are used for the wall, the lintels, the gutter, the downpipe, the roof base and the chimneys. I did not want to use white window frames. The alternative choice were the windows from the small cottage kit from Smart Models. I used the black and blue window frames. For the roof I also used a slate roof texture from Smart Models. Doors, the net curtains and some of the curtains I created myself using pictures from internet. The were made to size and sometimes I altered the colour a little bit. Chimney pot are from Dart Castings and Smart Models. The coursed rubble is scribed using an embossing pen. There is a light weathering on some parts. The roof is more weathered. I toned down the whole roof with a neutral grey pastel from Schminke. And I weathered the roof further with a chromium oxide green (Schminke) and a yellow ochre (Rembrandt). For the weathering of the chimneys I uses a dark neutral grey, looks more brown (Schminke) The cottages will be used in a small diorama based on a short story from Agatha Christie.. I will publish this when finished.
  13. Thank you. I miss sometimes your updates. Don't get an email when you have posted a new topic. I post now frequently in some Facebook groups.
  14. Although it is been quite silent from my side, I’m still modeling. After I had finished Rose Cottage I build Apple Tree Cottage. Apple Tree Cottage is the premises of the Hinchliffe sisters. They do some small village farming: a small apple orchard and some pigs. In the picture some pig food will be delivered using a Austin A70 pick up. The car is a John Day Model. According to my research the sisters Hinchliffe had a small car. From my collection of cars I choice the Morris Minor MM. The sisters bought this car in 1949 by Henderson’s Garage in Milchester, Middleshire. Model cars are out of the box to shiny and clean. I gave the Morris a coat of Vallejo Satin Varnish and some weathering. The garage/shed for Apple Tree cottage is finished. I used a garage from 3DK models to create the garage for Apple Tree Cottage. Instead of a brick wall I used a wood texture from Model Railway Scenery. The garage door is from the 3DK garage kit. The asbestos roof is a texture from Model Railway Scenery. I added some white metal details from several suppliers whish I painted using paint from Vallejo, Citadel paints and AK. Green is from Busch, Woodland Scenic and MiniNatur. I finished the shed scene by adding Cutie, the Irish Setter, and miss Mary Hinchliffe to it. There is a little story behind the scene but that I have to save for a later moment. Another scene has to been built for it. This little diorama is not yet finished completely. I still have to do the right side. Thanks for reading and keep safe. I also wish every one a Happy Christmass and a healthy and good 2021. Greeting, Job
