just to have it all in one place...
an older project. Either to be completed as house, or to be glued to the background.
from a pic, that i liked.
since i dont find any silicone to make molds and making windowframes is a pain somewhere, i am always looking for alternative materials to make windows:
this cartonbox material gives the wall some substance, some "body". behind that i glued some plexi for windows and stability.
A wirebrush gives the coffee stirrers some nice structure.
the windowsills are from plastic (styrene?), the doors are from two layers of veneer.
Some more glueing and here we are:
the lighting of the house (and of the car) is made from chrismas lights.
not very visible on the pics, but here too the use of a picture as "interior" of the house is an easy and effective way to better the object.
the idea was to make that ugly column "disapear".
as it is near the middle of three tracks, that are each about 11 meter (37') long, i thought to make a station.
obviously, the higher it is, and the more eyecatching, the less noted the column will be.
so i thought to make three-storey of framework upon a high stonemade groundfloor.
the three lower floors shall fake some freight deposits.
right and left of the lowest framework-floor i plan to make covered platforms.
to further divert observer's eyes from the column, i plan a watertower and a sanding facility on the sides of the building.
i am still doubting, how to make it. nordic style, with red or brown walls and white frames, or german style with black(dark brown) frame and white wall.
progress is slow. i have to weight down every piece, i glue on. and the weights are too big to work around them.
everytime i glue a stick down, i have to wait, till the white glue is hard, before i can take away the weights to continue...
I sealed the wood with furniture polish.
time to plaster the walls.
first coat of plaster applied.
and at this point the project was abandoned for the moment.
a change in the planning for the layout does not call for a station at that place anymore.
the facade will be used later as part of a "shelf-stationbuilding", a flat.
