Some big trees on the earthwork next to east side of the britge. Telegraph poles added:
East side of the bridge module:
Looking better everytime!!
Wow, now it's really coming together!
Thank you friends.
As you noticed I try to model real place. Modules are almost ready so it is time to try to add trains...
Real photo (source: http://forum.modelarstwo.info/threads/chrzypsko-wielkie-i-linia-368.42245/page-6#post-896117 ):
on my layout:
You absolutely nailed it!
Yup, you've recreated it perfectly!
Really nice. Just needs a fitting backdrop!
I really like your trees and bushes. Did you explain how you made them somewhere is this thread (can t find it)? I would appreciate some tips.
Most of the big trees were made by small company called Freon: http://modelarstwofreon.eu/ . I ordered desired sizes (regular offer is mainly for HO and TT scales). Some trees I made myself using Noch 23100, spray glue and apply Noch leaves of desired colour or similar products.
Bushes were made with the mix of Mininatur products (mainly: 980-13, 936-12, 980-12) and Heki products (mainly 1677 but also some other shades)
I cut them into small irregular pieces and glue individually mixing textures and colours. To have some bushes with flowers i use small pieces of Polak 5989. To give impression of some smalle and bigger bushes I glue in certain places additional small pieces on the first layer and add some small pieces of Heki 1646.
I always try to look at some products for bigger scale to be adapted to Z scale. HO clamp of grass may be used as a cane in Z scale. I made 10-12 smaller trees planted on the bank of the river by cutting into pieces 3 bigger trees for some bigger scale.
Very impressive details! Outstanding work enjoy looking at all the details! keep up the great work!
Thank you for your comment. There is a part of your work in this module as well. You designed brick parts of the bridge. Thank you again.
Thanks, good tips.
New modules create a very nice environment for military equipment. This time it is Star 66 truck for 6PDPD (parachute division livery - period 1965-70):
The military trucks look great, but the rigid "weeds" are suspending their wheels off the ground , somewhat ruining the illusion. They look great on the dirt road, though.
Again trying to follow the real photo:
Modules are also nice to make photos of model cars. This time - fire brigade
Absolutely love the real compared to model photo! You really have captured the look perfectly!
