Wooden coffee stirrers for clapboard....that's a good idea.

 

This will be very nice when it's done.

thnx :)

today i continued the siding

1454620_377687652364151_1797879416_n.jpg

the srews in the roof are temporary

on the sides of the building i put wood , used paint stirers from out local diy market

1380256_377687655697484_1984850881_n.jpg

finished the siding and started work on the door , just made a fantasy patern from wood

1458544_377687669030816_2141445413_n.jpg

this shows it better , note : i did the imperfect look on purpose , not everything level and not perfectly matching and ... i want the building to have some soul and age

thnx ron and yes its not done in a ... but thats the fun right :)
what about the roof my plan is to cover that in roofshingles .. would be a massive job haha


after the last update i build on and put some bondo in the wider seems on the front door

1452528_377710865695163_417894228_n.jpg

most of the time the point of the roof is closed and it has a ceiling , that takes away a lot of visibility and tends to make it look flat and again i need depth because its not a whole building ..
so i desided to combine the looks of a old barn and make wooden support beams , this also ties in with the rest of the wood work

1451989_377710869028496_635044024_n.jpg

the inside of the roof is rough from anding of all cast marks and mount brackets ..
i was thinking i could put wooden planking in there .. just have to see how much wilol remain visible

9913_377710879028495_1689519542_n.jpg

i wanted to ad 2 more supports and put one on eitch side of the center beam in a anlge put that became too ..what the word dollhouse like hahahaha

1452384_377710912361825_388539529_n.jpg

then under the roof i need to make a raised concrete piece to put the gasspumps on and make support pillars from the roof to the concrete

994049_377710932361823_649893748_n.jpg

the sign holder on the roof will be made from wood also (or read covered in)

1452019_377710925695157_582426217_n.jpg

a test and this shows it will be cool to use as a photobooth for my models

thnx jonas whell the base for the wondows where plastic window frames from pola g (big train scale) i had some pieces left from my garage diorama and put 2 together and made the surround with wood :)

note on this update , i;m making more with wood but bare with me , most stuff will not look like wood at all when i'm done
like the base for the pumps that will become concrete and the pillars will become steel .. and the wood that is ment to still look like wood in the end will be painted

base for the pumps with pillars , now this is the rough base the pillars will be wider at the bottom and i will add a mounting plate and bolts into the concrete .. so just a bare skeleton

thnx guys and larry here you go >



i had a bunch of spare tube ends from .. uuhhmmm how do you call that in english ?? a translator does not seem to know it either ?? its for diy a cilinder with stuff in to close seems (lol at my discription)

anyway i sawed off a small piece ...

1393384_378199042313012_1836360389_n.jpg

wich slided over the support poles and so i had a thicker bottom

995868_378199038979679_1473046483_n.jpg

made a cross beam on the top of the poles

1463396_378199052313011_248159077_n.jpg

then added 2 more wooden beams in the front roof frame

2554_378199088979674_598432607_n.jpg

for the inside i used ribbed plastic that came of old plastic window blinds , you only see a tiny bit of the inside so using wood ..hmm i can use that better in other earea's

1452134_378199095646340_816206463_n.jpg

closed the inside with a straight point and some wooden beams

1425565_378199108979672_649504251_n.jpg

1424340_378199138979669_471707266_n.jpg

and made some extra supports on the strut poles under the roof

1395185_378199148979668_1174955366_n.jpg

1462953_378199158979667_492184702_n.jpg

the sides of the bottom line of the roof also will get a beam

1000370_378212572311659_785391380_n.jpg

and some caps to get an idea when there are pumps , could be a cool base to build some glass top pumps

1441248_378212558978327_1932003468_n.jpg

1460195_378212605644989_836478072_n.jpg

and started on the gass pumps ...



took some ballpointpen parts and a cap from a tube with ....cant seem to find the right word (see previous post)

1454789_378274448972138_467846576_n.jpg

sawed up 2 clear pens and got these glass houses out of them

1459093_378274442305472_829171330_n.jpg

some rods used from cuetips lol

601152_378274458972137_948509877_n.jpg

and whell made it look like some fuel was inside , i reconed orange clear would work ? i didnt have anything better ..
and i thought most pumps you buy are empty so its always better detail wise

482429_378274488972134_640973050_n.jpg

whell since even my plastruct glue would not glue these types of plastics i used regulair glue so i could not continue it was to fragile without the glue hardened

just look at stuff differently arno hahahaha .. its also fun to use the weirdest stuff to build something and yes .. i know what you mean , well the pumps will get way more detail , and a round top and ... details :)

first started on the pump area concrete floor , made it look like square concrete slaps .. this is only the rough start , will need way more work to look more like concrete , and i will also put some weeds in the creeses

tonight i went on with the floor (yes its evening over here lol :) )

peeled of some of the top layer of the wood

1452237_379051292227787_1216371760_n.jpg

put some bondo on with a cloth and washed some dark grey in

1461783_379051288894454_1969766966_n.jpg

then i washed the floor with bondo and a cloth , buffed most off and added washes with rust brown , oker yellow .. and downtoned the washes so not one color was dominant in a way it stood out too much

7698_379051295561120_1491044334_n.jpg

better vieuw

1451592_379051348894448_789153400_n.jpg

close up and testmade some weeds at the bottom , will make more but for now its to fragile to work on the rest , i also have some other stuff for weeds

1450037_379051338894449_509027206_n.jpg

close up
