That is one of the coolest scratch builds I have seen. Ever. It looks driveable. I'm guessing it will go under glass? or on a display shelf?

Now, for the bad news.

You have to top this with your next project.

Thanks for the pix. Great stuff.

Thank you all for your comments, and welcome to those joining the mad house.

Well Red you are so true. And inspired by your amazing scenery here we go for the start of what I hope will be my entry in this round of the LoER Terrain comp.



And a few hours later....



Thoughts?

Damn, you don't half make me feel as lazy as I (more than likely) am sometimes. All I've done today is prime and base-coat some Cultists (although I was sucked into Portal 2 for quite a lot of today, maybe that was it...) and you've gone and built a broken building...

Good job though.
Do I spy a tiled bathroom in the corner?

Ooooh that's looking nice. I would say the largest wall could use some more cracks or something. Perhaps some posters or tagging, something to break it up. I really like the floor and the general layout though

Really love the building so far. Finally someone making walls of a realistic thickness!

I'm sure that bath (if thats what it is?) will look great in it.

Hey now, you can't blame me for inspiring ruins, good sir. I'm a build 'em up, not knock 'em down kind of guy these days.

Anyway, three layers to the wall? I see some foamcore, but what is the brown center?

I confess: I like the flooring. How about a trap door/cellar door in it?

A soap carving?

On Realistic thickness. Hmm, consider this Noodles, 1mm ~5.5cm more or less. (I use this for my ground scale. Yeah, I'm American, but after years of using grams and milliliters in the lab, I have adjusted to SI units. Plus I'm lazy, and it is easier to add decimals than fractions, or to find a decimal inch ruler.) The walls should be more or less 4mm-12mm thick, give or take a mm here or there, depending upon the building type. Most residential stuff in the US will be ~4mm thick, commercial stuff a bit thicker, and the skyscrapers and such closer to 12+mm. Something to try sometime, build to a fairly precise and realistic scale. I think you'll like the results. The doors and windows will look a bit narrow at first though. The giant 25mm bases tend to mess with our perceptions of scale on the table.

It is a bath, made of a special putty I use occasionally.
Used some plastacine as a former.

The walls are made using a strong MDF approx.5mm thick, then glued foam board either side. Mostly for the ability to carve it a bit as seen. Total thickness is 12mm. I figured the thickness would look a bit more realistic, even though it is a bit thick for true scale. We have walls here as thick as 600mm+ in some older buildings, Although typical for a modern house is nearer 300mm max.

My thinking here, which is limited, is it is a imperial residential building in a hot climate where thick walls help regulate temp. and it will have some new residents.

Yeah, in the tropics, nice thick walls are an old way of keeping things cool. And high ceilings.

Foamcore and MDF, I'd be fearful of warping. But I'm in a generally humid area too. That thing is going to have some weigh to it to be sure.

I used a good glue, not PVA. And it weighs a ton, but I am big and strong so no worries.

Nice. I like the idea of the plasticine form to make the bath around. Don't know why I didn't think of it before. I'll keep that in mind.

I have to confess for my own entry I let myself get inspired by your current ruin...pics of that later on. WhatiI need to ask tho is why is the first floor missing? Even a small leftover I would have expected?
The spray you use...airbrush or how did you avoid the melting of the foamcore?... The outer wall by the way already looks as if it has fungus problems...I would keep it that way if possible and build up from there... The inner flor by the way looks amazing...all those board and then the tiles...

Not where I should be

Pre paint the foam bits with brush on paint. Let it dry. It is the propellant of the spray that melts the styrene, so just a quick primer of paint to seal it I find works well.

I have started using Army painter spray cans, and for the exterior, to add texture, I sprinkle Bicarbonate of Soda on the wet paint, it is a fine dust and absorbed by the paint, does not rub off, and leaves a nice texture.

As to the upper floor, watch this space, working on this as we speak.

Thanks Vik, I will be watching for an update from you soon then.

It's beyond steam Dr.H. Clean it with fire.

Wallpaper peeling off would be a good touch.

How much damage are you going to inflict on the surface of the wood floor?
