The Roadhouse

Post by Rocketscout on Thu 18 Mar 2010, 2:48 pm

I've started buiding my first dio and it will be of a truckers roadhouse but will include the ever increasing niusance of the ordinary road goer who thnks it their place to park their cars in areas not for them, I have started this dio with the building of the trucks first and U may have noticed that they R not plastic. Yep I'm doing it in cardstock as a challenge.


All models start out like this, as flatpack (but not Ikea Flatpack)

Some of the vehicles

Was going to use this pump set-up but found it to be to big.

As U cans ee the trailer wheels R razor blde type wheels.

Now fitted with cardstock to represent dual wheels.

More photos as the dio gains more equipment.

There's a lot of skill and patience involved with card modelling, and you have plenty of both. Great work mate.

boothy, U'd be surprised if I told U how many cardstcok models I've binned and still do, some R easy to do other R just a pain in the rear and I should never have started 'em and then there R the ones that, well we just won't go there.
