Title: Blood, sweat, and tears
Post by: CustomCreator on March 29, 2017, 06:40:49 PM
Spending over 10 years in local bands, one thing that always sticks in my head was the back alley load in area of a local club that is long gone. Although this will not be a replication of that exact load in door, it will be a tribute to all the band's that have spent many nights lugging gear though always seemingly wet, damp, back alley doors...

Some progress made tonight. It's not perfect, but a lot of the bricks will be hidden with pipes, posters, etc.

Nice and quick progress! Brick wall buildings are tough and a lot of work to recreate as model. You've done a great job so far! Can't wait to see it finished!
It's a very nice tribute to your past and all the talented musicians!

Stickers didn't come out as good as I hoped, but they should be ok for pictures.

Stickers are fine! Besides, it ain't the newest or cleanest venue. Bound to be some wear and tear.

Have to agree with the boys mate those stickers look excellent for a Alley way entrance.

Sorry for the double posts, but I am pretty damn proud of these shots and the work I did this afternoon. So much fun making cigarette butts!

Decided to redo the door as I wasn't really happy with the first one. Used the "salt technique" and some Tamiya weathering kit dust to make some rusty spots. Started adding the stickers too!

This hole is filled with clear paint, but the photo makes it seem like it's just the bottom. The cigarettes are submerged fully.

Wow, thanks everyone!

Started playing with electronics tonight! Going for two old "spotlights" on each side, and one overhead door. Trial run is pictured. Shade still needs weathering.

This shot is with one of those book lights from Dollar Tree that everyone uses. Trying to be a bit more original, but damn, they are handy...lol

I have to apologize publicly that in my haste to get my web work done yesterday morning I put the wrong artist in the title. I have since corrected that. Sorry Custom Creator!
