Park: Shrine

A project I have had my mind on for years. I finally completed it.

I have the idea for a Park Terrain set. This is part 2 in a series.

The Materials are:

  • Hirst Arts Roman Temple Mold
  • Random Candle Holder

 

The basic materials.
My mold making set up. (The wood blocks are part of a home made shelf.)

I really like the Hirst Arts Molds but I couldn’t (or wouldn’t) take the time to level them.

Shrine next to my Space Hulk containment cell project.

I experimented with some wash’s in this picture. You can see some of the purple mixed in with the brown and black.
Flocking!

 

So that is the second part of my Park Terrain set. I have a grotto thought up. Also I have some models to work on as well.

Park Statue


Hello! I actually finished a project.


The basic parts:

A piece of masonite.

An honor guard model. I got it from the bits guy at Gencon. (Chimera games I believe.)

The stand is Merlins Magic that I left in a solo cup.

Looks simple enough.

The first challenge is my paint dried up. I went to the dollar store and pick up some Krylon spray paint.

Twenty year old paint.

So here are is the pieces assembled.

I added some flocking and I think it turned out rather nicely.

I am hoping to add more so that I have a “Park” style terrain set.

Duster Project

DSCN0117We started working on the 73 Duster that I bought years ago.  So some background.

I bought the car back in 2010. Yes, I know it goes against MrMoneyMustache, but I had high hopes for the car.

1. There was a girl. (She’s gone now.)

2. It would be my dad’s last project. (He bought another car.)

So in 2010 we stripped the car down, taking out the slant six, the interior down, with the plans to restore it, put in a V-8. But life got in the way as it usually does. We finally got the car painted in 2013.

So recently my brother decided it was time to get the car finished. We are gradually finding the bolts and pieces to put the car together. Today however, we hit a snag. As we attempted to put the windshield in, the window cracked. 4 years of storage and it breaks in the home stretch.  So today was kind of disappointing.DSCN0119

I have realized I have way too many projects and I need to start finishing projects.
