Not bad, just rusty

Lamont Camera (FOS Scale Models)

I’ve been very busy with work lately, but here is a commission build of Doug’s awesome kit “Lamont Camera”.

When I was approached to make this kit, I knew it would be a great opportunity to play with slopes and gradients. The rear wall of this kit provides an awesome opportunity to do something like this and I couldn’t resist.

The build was per instructions, changing a few things (like shingles instead of rolled roofing) and adding a few things (like the roof repair, which was created with spare strip wood and chipboard).

I also added a small garage, the stud work was laser cut (yes, I now own a laser — more soon!) and finished board-by-board. It was super fun to put together. The abandoned car inside was 3D-printed and heavily weathered to match using AK Interactive enamel washes.

The idea behind the build is a new owner has recently purchased the derelict business and has begun the restoration work.

Without further ado:
