    Hello !
    I was made this some years ago. Unfortunatly I don't keep the model, only some images.
    This is a amall workshop from the early XX century in 1:32 scale.
    All is wood, the roof tiles are paper, and some small pieces in brass and plastic.

    Here, some pics from construction process.

    I do like it; very much! I really enjoy a scene so much more than a model by itself... That's what I found I need to create-- for me, models are parts that make up a scene. If I didn't know to put them together like that, I would drift away from the hobby, I think.

    I really love your details... amazing work, of course. Just one question: I was wondering what method you used to apply the "sign" to the wall? From the "before sign" to "after sign" picture, it just looks like it appeared, magically, and it's so natural-looking I can't quite figure out how you might've done it!

    Thank you so much for uploading all these pictures--- they're very inspiring (as a modeler), and quite beautiful (as anyone at all).

    All the best!

    Wonderful diorama, the guys in the Railroad section will love this. I sometimes go overboard in the details but the finished work is worth it once it is finished. I hope to see more of your works.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments.
    The sign is dran freehand. First with a pencil and coloured with watercolours pencils.
    It's just a question of patience.
    Again, thanks for take your time to visit and comment.
    Best Regards,

    Xavier

    Oh, wonderful! Thank you for letting us know. I guess it's a reminder of some of the overall thing that scratchbuilding can often seem to point out--- sometimes the simple methods are all that's needed. One gets so used to thinking there's a method or clever trick for everything... great to see that "just draw it" still has its place, right up there at the top at home in the finest work. Thanks again for sharing the photos; they give me ideas, motivation, confidence--- and general enjoyment.

    Warmest regards,

    Isarmann

    It's probably in a museum.

    A friend just asked me if I could give him, and I did.
    I just keep some few small parts.
