Project on Hold




This is something else that I am working on, this is the Dominion Building.  The prototype is in Vancouver British Columbia, I fell in love with this building about a year ago and wanted to model it.  A few major changes that I did were first the obvious color, I like the original but I changed it because it doesn't look right for the feel that I want.  Second I changed a few other elements of the building for space reasons.  The building is currently in a holding pattern until I learn how to mass-produce windows, I have about 70 left to frame.  

Corner view of the Dominion Bldg.  Note the early stages of the EL to the left.


Similar view as above, the blocks on the third floor were hand laid.

Absolutely fantastic. You are an inspiration. Do you have any tips on how to create the patina color that you use?

Thanks and keep posting.

Wow, thanks for the kind words. The color I used was a mix of my own, everything that I had found was too yellow. The problem is I didn't write down the mixture and the little bit that I had left from when I first painted dried up. When I remix the stuff I will post about it.

Thank you for posting.
