Good Lord the detail and workmanship is scaring this returning to models after forty + years away.

Looks great to me.

I like the brick, and the "old time" garage door. Gives a cool old-time look, like a garage that was built even before "horseless carriages" came along!

Beautiful work! There is so much detail, and I like the brick. It looks like an old time carriage house, before there were automobiles. Great job!

thanks all, here is a tip to do the brick job

ok guy, here is the pics for an illustrated how to !

If some point are not clear enough ask me, i'll try to give you an answers

So first you have to engrave your wall in polystyrene foam (you can use blue insulating foam at Home Depot in US for example). Here i use some Depron (that's use to made light RC plane)

To engrave the material, let's have a look to this photos wich show you how to do the better job for that :

Here i made my wall like this and here is the result

I haven't got pics for the primer of my work with the Gesso, but you just have to paint the wall with it,

materiel1-vi.jpg

and when it's dry, you paint with the first color !

materiel2-vi.jpg

and you have this when the paint is dry

Then you take the 3 other color

And paint randomly some brick

After, you have to take your dry pigment

and with a brush, put some pigment on the wall

you will have this

Then make a wash with black paint and alcohol

8-vi.jpg

You'll have this

9-vi.jpg

After, an other wash with the first color

10-vi.jpg

11-vi.jpg

And you'll have this

12-vi.jpg

Then you have to let dry the wall over a night

I hope that it's clear for all like this !

Simply amazing brickwork! I like the idea of the foam panels for doing that. I've toyed with doing something similar but I could never figure out how to paint it without melting the foam or causing some other problem.

Great job.

I agree with these guys!! There is no such thing as too much brick!!

I've built several dioramas over the years, but they were always intended to be sold, so I never put that much work into them. If I ever build one that I plan to keep, I would want to make it as nice as this one is being built.

Thanks for sharing,
