Late Addition to The Road To Dombas volume 3


 Steve is well on the way to finishing the graphic design on the Setting The Scene volume 3 Road to Dombas book. Unfortunately, I have thrown a spanner in the works and delayed this slightly by giving him more work to do. I have added more material to the book in the form of a scratch built model of a typical Norwegian timber house with red painted wood and turf roof which is common in this part of the world.

I have also gone through the stages on painting and weathering the building using the Hairspray Technique, to pack in as much content into the book as possible and give the reader another tool to go in their model making tool box. 

 For more information on volume 1 or 2 of Setting the Scene or if you would like to register interest in this, volume 3, please leave a comment on Steve's webpage.

  6. Good looking pictures! Good luck with this volume, I really enjoy my copy of the Mediterranean terrain. Now I’m just buying my time for a book dedicated to North America. 😀

    1. Thanks Stew, glad you like the Mediterranean book. Don't hold your breath with a North American book but then, who knows whats around the corner.

    1. Thanks Terry, I believe the hairspray technique is usually used for weathering vehicles but I thought I would give it a go on buildings.

  8. Lovely look Pat. I like the desaturated look of the terrain - it fits very well with the winter theme.

    1. Just a mo. I know why no snow on the roofs. They have the heating on :-) Which says to an approching enemy "someone´s at home!!"

    2. Thanks Paul. Using the clear acetate for the temporary snow effects would work but it's just me being lazy.
