BP Garage (Finished)

Post by Shoey on Tue 22 Jul 2008, 3:29 am

Here is my BP gas station, there are still a few small things left to finish it off.
By pressing one of the old tyres around the side it sets off the timer for the lights.
this will also be my new back drop for all my car pics. hope you like!!








I only just noticed that the gutters have not been rusted, OOPS! fix it later.











I carved the driveway out of car bog, magic stuff.

Sorry Shoey - I don't like it...

I LOVE IT. greatwork

That's brilliant mate. It's the details that make it work. Like the 44 gallon drum rubbish bin, the smashed sign, the tap on the wall, the roof insulation, it all adds up to absolute brilliance.

Dunno about that pussy pink firebird though...? Shocked Rolling Eyes Very Happy

Like I said - you ought to be in movies! Oh and I wouldn't bother about the gutters - so the owner replaced his old rotted out gutters with nice new ones? Great work and realism.

If anyone wants some really good advice and tips on making model buildings look even more realistic, there's a program on pay tv how to channel called "workin' on the railroad". Although it's all about model trains, they go into extreme detail in showing how to make very realistic buildings.

Love it.

You should put up period correct fuel prices each timne you use it to photograph a car.
But then again that might be far too depressing.
