Primered the first 45 pieces tonight with grey wood primer. In itself an excellent colour for concrete Rolling Eyes

With some luck I might get one or 2 pieces done before Christmas so I can show them with some of my bunkerfiller displayed in it. Maybe. Cool

Damnit Johan, should I even attempt to build anything anymore?

Hehe, don't worry Brad, this is a project that most likely will drag itself along over quite a few years to come, so feel free to build away Wink

Some progress, these are using the 2 boards I posted in the Painted section.







As planned, 25mm squares. Not as planned was using a pencil to mark the walls and the sides, but as I was painting I figures it was the way to go.

The big tile is a better result then the second, propably due to having more paint (I experimented on it) so might go back over the narrow tile and redo parts of it (as I have to partially redo the back anyway)

So, what you think of it?

Johan

I think youve done a splendid job,looks like its supposed to,i guess your showing it as work in progress so are going to add weathering later.

The whole project is real clever and yet so simple,i also used the 6mm MDF for my Grand Daughters zoo build and the thing i noticed the most is how strong it is from just white wood glue to the joints(i did add hidden brackets to hold the main box shape together as she is only two!) I wouldnt have botherd though if it was for me as its strong enough with just the glue,is that what you have found ?

Thx Al Very Happy

The big tile is done as it is, the smaller tile needs a few more toutches but I'm trying out new things as I go along to see what works best. So far it's mostly washing and removing with a damp cloth for the effect, and that works ok.

And yes, my blocks being quite a bit smaller then your big box, I have stopped adding extra pins after the first 2 big pieces, the woodglue is so strong that u have to apply a lot of force to actually tear a section apart, and even then the glue will hold and just break somewhere else.

Mighty fine stuff, MDF, and perfect for this.

Johan

Painted a few more modules last night (and this morning). I keep changing and mixing techniques now, washing one minute, drybrushing the other. But sofar, I think they tie in nicely, even after adding another colour to the mix, but that I mostly use for a wash of the first layer now for added oomph so to speak.









The large wall is one of the walls for the hangar/U-boat bunker/warehouse. The strip you see will have a few magnets imbedded to add things like cranes etc. Decided to do all of the magnetising after I painted the lot...seems easier at the moment.



And may I now point your attention to the block on the right?

All of the blocks that are able to stand upside down unsupported, as well as the basic floorplates, will be painted on the bottem as well, to make them even more modular then they were to begin with.

Quite ingenious, even if do say/think/create myself Rolling Eyes

And now I'm off.....Merry Christmas to you all!

Johan

Johan, you´re a genius! The idea with the upside down use of structures is very clever and the way you painted the concrete is first class! My admiration for doing that project... Smile

Whom is Red Skull sneaking at in front of the bunker machinery?

Johan,

What did you use for the equipment and machines that you posted about on December 23rd (2nd and 3rd pics). They look great and nicely detailed.

regards,

Brad Smile

All scratchbuilt, see my Bunker Filler topic >> http://theguild.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1668&highlight=bunker+filler

Plasticcard and various bits and bobs salvaged from various scale kits, GW stuff and HO railroad relics. And a bucketload of imagination.

Some recent updates and a notice.

First, the notice.......I've started a Blog.

Now now, don't moan, not another one, this one is pretty narrow (minded) and will be just for my Bunker and Bunkerfiller project.

Here is the link >> http://gunbird.wordpress.com/

I'll keep posting here as well as the pics can be a bit bigger on this forum Rolling Eyes





Things that are new from last time, a stairwell, extra blocks and a WIP Imperial Eagle on the reverse side of a 20x20 tile. It looks nice, the effect is what I want of it and there will be a lot more Smile

Johan
