The roof is coming along great, especially in newer pics .

Stupid fact of the day in the b-52 song "love shack" when they say "tin roof rusted", it is slang for "the girl is pregnant". I know there's no point in saying this here, but thought I'd share some of my vast useless Information.

Thanks dudes.
Nowt wrong with interesting facts here Theo.

Having decided that I should stop fiddling with the roof for fear of making a mess of it (like the ladder) and having fixed said ladder, I have started the (potentially quite long and laborious process of) painting the base.

This is brown as a base colour, dry-brushed with a lighter brown (having run out of my usual lighter brown I have had to mix some "bone" with brown) and now I've picked out the things that look enough like rocks to be rocks and found out what else is going to be needing paint, such as scrap wood, rusty metal and some either young plants or dried leaves...

And what bright spark decided to put a large rock next to a large plant (because that's where a plant would likely grow) and therefore make both of them difficult to paint...


The paint is still a little wet in places here, so ignore the shinyness.

Thanks Theo.

The things that look like rocks are mostly rock-like.
The things that look like rusty metal are mostly rusty.
The things that look like bits of wood are becoming woody...
Edit: Oh, and the things that look like broken pottery are ceramic coloured and waiting for a simple design...

Once that's done, I can start on the plant life and it's affect on the surroundings (read; mould).
Getting very close to done...

But if there was no plants then those Catachen jungle fighters would have nothing to complain about...

And for the 1000th post here in my blog, here's the first layer of green on the plants.

The piles of plastic shavings painted up ok in the end.
You can also see some rocks and a lump of rusty metal.

Thanks , they were just following the tutorial and there were about 3 or 4 other plants that I made but didn't make the grade.

Maybe that's why the hut got broken...

dsteingass wrote:Amazing work!-But try some lighter brighter green too

Thanks.
Yeah, see below. That was just the base green, there were washes and highlights to be added.

Well guys and gals, the time has come... it is done.

May I present... The (Sprue) Hut!
Outside:


Roof, top and bottom, and the ladder on it's hook:


and moving inside, the table and bench in position with the completed bottles (I wanted something recognisable and also a nod to one of the prizes on offer...) and you can see some broken pottery:


and finally, the smaller details:


All the above pictures are quite zoom-able (and vote-able ) so you can see all the little details.

I hope it's been worth the wait.
Any comments, questions and criticism welcome.
There is a lot of detail crammed in so feel free to ask about things if they're not clear...

I can see a comment you made on one of the pictures, so maybe it wasn't entirely eaten. Thanks.
Yeah, I am very happy with it.

Thanks about the pictures, you probably won't believe me when I say they were taken with a camera phone and a clip on desk lamp that I had to hold at the same time. I did have to take about 3 times the number of pictures to get the ones I used. I quite like the shot with the light coming in the window though.

Ha, I do have many, many hobbies and tend to rotate the focus every now and then depending on time/money/effort.
Although I'm more of a rock climber than ping pong player... (but I haven't done much for ages and so am very out of shape).

Little details (with reason behind them) are what makes a model.

Away to vote now.

It is brilliant and beautiful. As someone trying to compete, and failing, this is simply art. Absolutely perfect. We are definitely trying for 2nd place now.

Now lets see you pump one out for the other competitions.!!

Hey wow, thanks everyone; near perfect 10s. I was hoping for 8s or maybe 9s... I is a happy chappy.

You just have to push yourself Cam and pay close attention to the smallest of details, you can do it.

Ha ha. One's enough for me. You can tell how much I dislike deadlines by how much effort I put in to getting this done (and I still only just got it done before the original deadline I was aiming for...).

I think I'm going to go back to my more casual modelling pace for now... and maybe one day in the future I may enter another competition that captures my imagination like this one did.
