To go with the Mini art tram

It is so good it's not funny. The whole thing is very convincing, but the surface around the tracks is just outstanding. Wow!

It's my own 19th Century version of a Tram Overpass you would find in the old Prussian cities in eastern Germany (now Poland) 1945.

Maarten, your stuff is museum quality, in fact it's better than most museums would have on display. I'm surprised I don't see your stuff in magazines and popular websites, it's just awesome what you do.

Beautiful work Maarten. I'm curious as to how it all starts off. I assume you make the basic shape out of mdf, ply, plastic etc, then take a mould off it, and then make a plaster copy which you then further detail and paint? I'm curious to see how you got it started.

Cheers,
T

Out of 2mm plastic sheet i made the shape of the bridge ,inside the mold i placed a smaller shape of the bridge from styrofoam to lighten the model ,
And poured the plaster in .
(no pictures)
The Arches , bricks/stones and other things :
All made from plastic .... i made rubber molds from them ( All cast in plaster)





The road section:
They came with the Miniart tram kit , made rubber mold from them ,the part with the rails is cast in resin (so i wont chip the rails)
and the sides are plaster copies.





And every thing is glued on with white glue.



Painted and airbrushed with acrylic and the wases are done with oils.

Thanks for the explanation of how you built it up Maarten. Makes total sense. I do like the ease of how you make the moulds. Simple puddle of plaster into an open face mould. I must give this technique a try some time.

I always love it when folk's go back to the basic's and 'true' modelling (no offense or disrespect intended to anyone).
No the question must be asked - do you have a very large display/storage area ? :lol: . Just that we are seeing some sizeable bases being produced and you have to put them somewhere :S .
Brilliant work as to be expected from the base master.

I still have some space to store/display them ,
But most of them are given to modelers who realy like them (Most do :whistle: ), and on occasion i sell them .
For me the most fun is building.

oh GAWD that is impressive!! Especially all those bricks on the roading, being different colours - that is awe-inspiring in itself... and then you look at the rest of the base!! Sheesh... just so damn good. Something to aspire to that's for sure!
