This was my first endeavor in 6mm modelling. I wanted to recreate the middle-class-shanty look of the south-east asian and south-american countries. Most of the buildings there have a concrete skeleton and brick walls, all of it flattened on the same level. In such a small scale I wanted the concrete slabs to pop out, hence the final design is a bit distant from the real thing.
I designed the core blocks and 3D printed them. This allowed me to have a fairly accurate set of volumes to work with. Casting them in resin and cutting them together gave me enough freedom to create a dozen different final shapes.
After cleaning and sanding, the buildings got a light wash to enhance any imperfection or unfilled hole.
The resulting set was then shipped to Gregster’s Lab, who handled the casting and production of the models. My part was done.
I received two copies of the casts as a part of the arrangement, and they really do their part!
