i just - more or less - finished the faces of the additional figgies! i was satisfied until i did the eyes ... i screwed up the majority of the eyes and will have to touch them up! no big deal but unnecessary like a pimple on the nose tip!

maybe i was distracted from the music* i had in my winamp? who knows! Rolling Eyes







* this is a very sad song about a friend (elisa) she had lost to drug addiction!

thanks peter! bounce

ok this is not a real update but i am that close to have the building finished that i can show you with what i have started! i needed a break from the figgies and spent my time exclusively on the ruin ...

well - thanks to german postal service i received a wonderful firestorm chruch ruin broken into multiple parts! after having cooled down again after freaking out and completing the basic puzzle i started to pimp the church a little bit:



since then a lot more has been done and i should be able to show you the final result in a few days! bounce

Well if it's a church ruin, isn't it supposed to be broken Razz Razz Razz

It's all right though. You did a great job putting it back together. And if anyone sees the cracks, just tell em it's battle damage
Other than that it is all looking good. Even the forklift guy Shocked What color are you going to paint the church?

Cool

jenny, bob and gary - thanks for your fothcoming support! highly appreciated! bounce

pink! what else? lol!

nah!

some solemn music for the church: Connie Dover - Cantus



... i have been ordered by a MIP to show some more pics ... with this building i strictly followed the "what would jenny do?" doctrine of modelling:

more slats and the supports for the stained glass have been added:



then i added a botanic thingy since i had thought that would add atmosphere, covered the outside of the church with black, followed by gently applying two different shades of grey and i stained the beams and slats with mahogany:



then i filled the interior walls with plaster where i didn't want stones visible, printed out a fresko on parchment paper following glenn's outstanding trick, cut the printout in two halves and glued them in place:





i should have done that later but i was too curious! Rolling Eyes

next step was to cover the beams with brown, then walls and roof got several thin coats of olive drab, dark green and self mixed green drybrushed to simulate dirt and lichen:







then i gave some few stones another coat of lighter and darker grey (only very few!) and gave each and every single stone that i wanted to be covered the lichen treatment (that was mind numbing i say!):





then - on sunday - i started the special item the very same MIP had ordered me to add ... the organ! since the ruin doesn't give me the chance to place a big one with organ pipes i had to go with a small organ, used in smaller churches that aren't placed in areas that consider themselves the most catholic (spain, portugal, bavaria! = the bigger the organ the holier the church ( Rolling Eyes ) ) ... i spent some time until i found an organ from 1923 that would fit into:



i think that was enough of update overkill ... i have done more work since and i'll be able to show more in a few days!

Well I think it is amazing , the whole building is looking tremendous, the interior is going to look tremendous too .

Honestly I can not see the unwanted damage from the damage to the ruin in transit !

do you notice the crack on the far left? for me it is visible and unnecessary like a pimple on the nose tip! (and since i know where they are exactly i can see the others too! Crying or Very sad ) but like gary suggested and as privately discussed with you earlier this is battle damage now and for all times! Very Happy

no one besides jenny and richie likes my church! Crying or Very sad

i'll update anyway since i have finished the church (well - almost! the stained glass needs further attention Rolling Eyes - maybe i'll redo the glass completely since i'm totally unsatisfied!)

ok ... with a little bit of music in my winamp i painted that botanic thingy (no leaves! i wanted to use tea leaves but the ones i have had no convincing shape), added some bird poop, blended the fresko paintings in the walls and blended some lichen spots. last step was to add the stained glass and try to paint the glass pieces with my transparent airbrush colors:











i just noticed that i have to reglue some spots of some fresko paintings (no big deal!), then on to the next secret item and then i'll finally continue with the figgies!

Crack - schmak , .......... it's bombed out it's supposed to be cracked.

You might want to distress the crack a little more , but I'd leave it , it looks the part.

Nice work Laura , leave it alone , ........ the vine is a bueaty touch and the frescos came out nice.

I think if you darken the white of the interior walls a little [ dirty grey - white , ? ] it would look a little better. This is just my opinion - to me the contrast difference between the dark outer walls and the bright white inner walls - just looks odd.
The only problem with that is it might be harder to correct if you darken them ........... and want to go back to lighter , ............ gee aint I a big help , .............. to disarm the bomb cut the red wire ............... but first ............. cut the blue wire .............. Laughing

Oh no. Quite wrong there on that one. I think it is just perfect. The outside is great, and the inside is looking soooo good I can hardly believe it.

Are you going to put any green leaves on the botanical thing?

Cool

This is sooo cool , I would , to soften the white , add a grey blue filter but very very dilute , if it needs a second dilute filter then sure , add it ! The murals look amazing as does the stained glass , hmmmm maybe just some dust needs adding to those walls , the place has been bombed & with any of my blasts there is an inch of dust EVERYWHERE including up my nostrils ! pale

Oooh Treemendus make the perfect green leaf thingies for the Ivy , PM Anthony & link to the thread he knows the stuff Wink .

Nice work you have done here Laura. It's most impressive!
I'd go with the idea of Cheyenne of darkening the inside walls a little and I'd do it with a grayish-brown filter. Other detail you can add are the nails in the roof beams. Those are easily done with a pencil and a little rust wash.

Take care and keep delivering those wonderful models.

glenn, gary, jenny, ruben - thanks for your feedback! Very Happy

glenn, ruben - thanks for the hints! the nails i may do, that's easy! darkening the walls ... i'm too afraid of messing everything up! i take it into consideration but at the moment i don't think i will do that!

gary - no leaves on that thingy ... the diorama will be late autumn and the idea is that the shells that plopped into and around the church would have blown away most of them, the rest done by the autumn winds!

jenny - rubble and dust will follow when i do the final scenery so that everything fits together! but i won't cover everything! the idea is that this church is in an area that had seen heavy fighting in the summer and now is far enough behind the lines for germans to resupply! lets say the battles around the church took place in august and this diorama will be in late october! in the meantime wind and rain have done their part to wash the initial dust away and let the lichen give opportunity to have grown ...

well ... yes ... that's the idea ... some kind of ...

Cool Laura the church looks great but it's missing a little something that would only be subconsciously noticed. Nail heads showing on the roofing boards,it's a man thing you know. Laughing

Looking good lady
