Nicely done! Where did you get these barges from?
Those are 3D prints from Shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/product/YB7FYHHUT/harbour-barge-1-1-220?optionId=157339269&li=marketplace
I plan to place them on the diorama paralel - next to each other:
Wow, those are awesome!
Great job on the details!
Soooo nice especially side by side!
Thank you for your comments.
Some time ago I got Artitect tug from @John Bartolotto. I try to match it with existing photos. After some "up-grade" od this model I have another unique item - closer to zctuall prototype - to be placed on the diorama
Wow, nicely done boat!
Very nice kit bashing! can we see what the original looked like?
This model in 1/220 is not available any more but there is one in 1/160:
My inspiration for an adaptation:
I got one more photo of "Kolektura" business in 30-ties.
Based on this photo I was able to add some detailes to the building which is already placed on the diorama.
I also added blue plates with road names.
Pawel, love the street signs, which are very difficult to print clearly and cut out because they are so small, but you did a great job! John
Next barge. There will be two of this type. They are sligtly modified 3D Shapeways models.
Street signs turned out very nice, those little details make the diorama.
The barge looks good! What is the brown material?
Brown material is pressboard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressboard
I got 3D printed barrels from Shapeways to be added to the Likwowin wine producing company yard.
Horse and carriage are also 3D printed. They are very fragile - I plan to fix them at the end of my work on this diorama.
Thank you John.
A friend from Polish forum suggested that this carrage should have two horses. I accepted the challenge ! Some surgery, some construction work and additional Preiser horse:
All parts were assamblied and some details added:
That really is some fun modeling! It really gives a sense of time and character to the scene.
Nicely done, Pawel. You have captured the feel of the photographs. Two horses look better. That's a lot of beer for one horse to pull. Did you reposition one of the horse's head? Jim
