Week 6 - The Finer Details

So I made more progress on the terrain project this week. I added some more details to the containers, I have about 10 more that need detailing. I am a bit torn on how I will paint them all up though. I had originally thought that I would make them all clean and look like a well maintained city area. On the other hand I keep seeing lots of opportunity to really dirty it all up, adding lots of posters, dirt and other grunge. Anyway here are some photos of three different containers.

I made a little progress on the apartment complex as well, putting in the sliding doors and marking out a decorative plate. The decorative plate will sit out from the building, I haven't decided how far yet though. I am tempted to make it part of the balconies, as the fire escape, but it would be kind of difficult to access. I also have to decide if I will make it out of MDF or acrylic. The acrylic will be harder to do and more brittle but have a nicer finish. A picture of the layout is below.

The last bit of progress I made was the detailing on the raised garden. The container details are now all ready, unfortunately I made a mistake when I made the frame. I forgot to account for the thickness of the top plate so now it is about 5mm too tall. Of course I realised this after putting in all the details... Never mind, it still looks okay if I don't have any other containers too close.
