  • City Taxi Build

    Hi everyone,

    I rested my modeling efforts during most of December to fight illness and concentrate on Christmas decorating and get togethers.

    It's time to jump back in to making structures!!

    My first build in 2018 will be a City Taxi Office and Shed. The time period will represent the late 30's.

    It will be scratchbuilt in 1:29 scale with foamboard, paper and stripwood. This build will represent a new structure so it will have very little weathering.

    Below is the sketch I threw together to help guide me during the build.



    See you in January!

    Dave, this looks like a fun fueled way to start off your new year.

    Your newest sketch does not look like you threw it together.

    It's very professional looking, like something you'd expect to see in a kit's instructions.

    Well if the model turns out as great as the drawing looks, than I can already make a prediction for 2018.

    It's going to turn out beautiful! [:-angel]

    Happy New Year!

      Nicely done Dave,

      I harken back to my drafting days. Also the TV show taxi.

      I look forward to see more progress.

        Dave,

        I echo the two statements above! This looks like another top-notch build for sure. I will be following along with your progress.

              Thanks Greg, I like to make sketches to guide my work as well as aid in my forgetfulness.

              I'll try to make your prediction comes true and build a good model.

                    I love the 30's architecture so I decided to marry a few different textures together to try to make the build interesting...Hope it works. I really appreciate your comments and support!

                      Carl, it's always good to have you on board.

                      I only hope I didn't forget how to scratchbuild during my time off.

                      Dave

                        Looks like another interesting venture. I be watching this one too.

                            What an interesting structure, Dave! It has a high proportion of detail and fiddley-bits to overall size.

                            It will be a great way to start the year for all of us.

                              Good Morning Mike,

                              I wanted to squeeze in the extra detail and I hope the fiddley-bit parts fit the overall effect I'm trying to achieve!

                              Thanks for the much appreciated comments!
