LOL...Filter do help Bill! The ones I apply directly to the mode that is!! I know the Tram didn't have any abs...
DUpes...Filters>Artistic>Movie 300 If it's not there...you can go to the site and download the plugin...not to difficult to install...or download the program again. I had to do it for something I screwed up.
Todd, This is one of the first dioramas that I came across after I joined. I used to live in Gent (here in Belgium) and the public transport to the city is with trams, I always wanted to create a tram dio but 8-10 years ago the only one on the market was a resin one I think...too pricey for my liking!!! Anyway, fantastic scene...the colours you have used for airbrushing and filtering are so dynamic and the mangled tram so realistic. Personally, and this is just me I would have had a more raised damaged building in the background. This is the type of stuff that I like about MSC, so many talented modellers showing their magical efforts...congrats on getting this one finished!! An entry for MOM March?
Thanks Shay, I really appreciate the kind words....and the feedback! The base is an area I left kind of downgraded, mainly to give focus to the center for the painting feature. I think that is why the black and white...and even the "300" colorized pic work well is there is something going on in the back! This Tram, as well as MiniArt's second offering of the German Tram since they completely did away with this one, are nice gap filling kits for dios or alone. My only gripe is not that the kit was clearly over engineered but that they did so on a section that typically would never be seen at all; the undercarriage. I can only surmise that when it comes to many modelling shows in that area of the world, sometimes it is protocol to actually pick up the model to inspect the entire piece whereas the bottom would show...or, in my case, knock the sucker out! LOL!!
extremely well done... you really nailed it on the spot... also your article... great writing... if i had a wish from you pros, i would like to read a / some articles showing the "destruction" of some kit... this is still some nebulous matter i do not really know to solve... bending the plastic or building parts to destroy from scratch and metal... ?? how is your way to do something like this???
Ohhh...I don't know Dupes. I hadn't thought of it until Shay brought it up actually!
Thank you very much coro! I really appreciate the kind words! While I am not too sure about that "pro" thing I can certainly try and help with what you are looking for. I know I have a few things around that show the actual process or explain it pretty good, not to mention there are a ton of other builds in here that show various processes. If you let us know what you might be looking to do, we can help point you in the right direction!
