Good stuff Ian, just like me, a bit of an idea, but that's all. I'm sure it will develop as your build progresses and turn out spot on.

Cheers,

Ron

That looks a cracking building Ian, loads of detail.

You're up and running now!

Good luck with the build.

Excellent work, I love the pose alterations, especially the standing guy. I wouldn't say this looks out of your comfort zone at all ;)

Looks ok to me, i'd be happy with the progress so far.

I also like the alterations to the figures, they look quite natural to be honest in the piccies.

comfort zone issues or not ..... i think this will turn out better than you anticipate Ian :smiling3: :smiling3:

Great start Ian. It looks just fine.

Don't worry about lack of ideas...they will come along when they are ready! Just sit back from it and have a minute (or the 2 months or so we have left! lol)

As for doing something you have not done before, we have to try out new aspects to our modelling (I am!) this way we can learn new tricks and techniques.

Personally, I'm having a hoot with this G.B....Having a go, slinging stuff in the bin, having another go. I'm not bothered about making an a**e of something, it's all part of the fun, but I am learning too!

So jump in, enjoy the build, but most importantly.....Have fun!!!

Please keep us posted with your progress.

Cheers,

Ron

I don't understand your words Ian!!!

The idea is good, seriously, and the whole set will be brilliant.

The modification of the figures they are so serious as the tremendous shot that is receiving!! I will confess a thing to you: the new diorama that I make, though I like it much there is something that is not OK. And fact of less making the first idea...

So my advice is that you don't give you up and continues with it, it was remaining perfect!! As he says Ron the important thing is have fun!!!

looking great so far mate, i have fallen in love with mini art buildings to the point that i am thinking of only doing these. only problem is that the plastic is so thin that you cannot sand the seams very well or it just dissappears into a big hole but maybe its something i am doing wrong. i am doing a polish town house at the moment.

Ouch, I bet that made his eyes water!

You've made an excellent job on the two figures Ian, great poses.

Don't keep us waiting too long for the next instalment, mind! lol

Cheers,

Ron
