Four Square Feet of City

As a Christmas present to myself, I completed the holiday preparations early enough that I could devote a few hours to finish up the big cityscape.  So here they are, the last four blocks of the city-scape. The round thing in  the back is some sort of modern concretesculpture/...

Home Stretch

Remember way back in October when I hoped to have this city table done by year’s end?  I’m not quite done, and it’s not quite the end of the year. The paint streaks show up in these photos more than they do in real life.  They are also way...

Big Project Blues

The problem with big projects like city scapes is that you do so many repetitions of the same work.  Take these shots, for instance: Two more buildings base coated and ready for The Dip.  But we’ve seen this before, haven’t we.  The only real new thing in this shot is the...

The Promised Land: Work In Progress

Just as promised yesterday, I’ve got the first of a series of work in progress posts for all you faithful reader out there.  Most of the work here was accomplished over the weekend: The brown portions of the ground here were primed, a little sand added, and then primed...

An Itch Not Fully Scratched

Obligatory Still Kicking Post

If you must, feel free to insert a cliched “not dead yet” joke here. (That’s what most bloggers do when they return after an extended absence.)   Instead of that, I’m just going to stick with a meta-not-dead-yet joke instead. At any rate…here are a couple of shots of the...

Mini’s Eye View Redux

Happy Independence Day! Here’s a couple of quick shots of the new public utilities board from the tabletop:...

New Board

Two posts in one week?  I’m just the eager little beaver.  Good wife willing and the creek don’t rise, I may get a chunk more done this three day weekend. Part of my seedy underbelly board got reclaimed by my daughter this past week.  That forced me to add...

Mini’s Eye View

Couple of quick shots of what my little mans are going to be seeing when they fight over these nine square feet of battlefield....

Big City Update

Dirtied up the city blocks this week with a coat of The Dip.  You can see that it took some experimenting.  The roof on the building in the lower left is a little dark for my tastes, but it does help to break up the buildings a little more....
