Bordello photos

I need a few photos for my layout album so I thought I would take a few of the Bordello:

Diorama final scenery

The diorama is nearing the end… I had some bare patches so added more grout. I also did a light dusting over the top of the shiny bits. If I just drip IPA and water on, it dries much more matte than with glue as well. This is what I’m trying to get rid of, …

Bordello scenery

I’ve been distracted by the garden but did manage to start on the landscaping. The first layer always looks awful but it tones down over time. I first painted the base with yellow ochre. A hideous colour but better than white: I then dusted (and heaped) on a sand coloured grout. It’s a bit lumpy …

Porch roof

More gardening so not a lot of modelling I’m afraid but I did get the roof on the porch: I used matt varnish to tamp the tar paper repair down as it is worn out: I was going to use these plastic mouldings for the railings but the porch is falling down so I’m not …

Bordello porch

I thought the customers may need some hand rails given the likelihood of them partaking in a few whiskies before they went upstairs: Someone, and apologies becasue I can’t remember where, recommended the following cedar grilling wraps. I’m not sure about the cedar as the grain is quite course. First I soaked it in A&I …

Barber shop

I took the photos but not sure how well it ties together yet: The barbers shop is done: I’ve lit the inside with beaded LEDs. The customers are too busy talking to actually get any barbering done but at least they look like they are having fun: I still need to put a chimney on …

Bordello wood colour

I decided that the wood looked a different colour to the painted resin: I therefore painted them with some grey Vallejo paint to tone in more. Forgot to take photos so more tomorrow…

Bordello base

Just managed to add the final internal details – doors, spittoons in the bar and a ladder to the upper level so Cliff and the ladies can get up and down. The bordello is now on its base – 1″ blue foam: I had already done the outside stairs to the upper storey and built …

Bordello interior photos

Thought I had better post a few photos of where I am. I just need to put some spittoons in the bar, a ladder to the upper storey and do those windows and screens… I think and the interior is done. Here’s the final interior photos. The bar: On the next storey up you have …

Bordello lighting… Again…

I’m still working on that pesky lighting. After many days, I am now weighing philosophical debates about whether you should be able to see the room inhabitants in daylight as you wouldn’t normally see into houses until the lights are on after dark… It’s a real pain. First I added LEDs pointing down through holes …
