Quite a simple build this one, based on a building near the centre of
Tokyo (Setagaya if anyone is from that area). No interior access for
the floors and the curtains, blinds took forever lol (it was also started over a year ago and has had bits done here and there over that time).
I had a lot of fun doing the garage area and most of the details are available Here
much the same methods as the ramen shop. Acrylic structure, rattle cans
for texture and colour and then inks and pastels for weathering.
Got a choice of what to go for next, a block of flats with a combini (convenience store), a block of flats with an office at ground level, a tall office block with a relatively fancy reception or a corner office block with a curved facade.

most of you will probably know, Salute 2020 has been postponed by the
Warlords until next year.
a consequence I've decided to offer free postage on all UK orders
over £20 and a £4.00 flat rate for all international orders over
£20 until the end of April (maybe for longer but we'll see what
happens). All pre-orders that have been received will be sent out as
soon as possible. The webshop is now set up for this so order away,
every little bit is appreciated.
years trade table and game is guaranteed for next years Salute on the
17th of April. The game will be different but the items that were
planned for release at the show will still be coming out, just a bit
later than originally intended.
got more commission work to show and some game reports that are
nearly finished so there'll be plenty to keep you all going.
a final note, please look after yourselves and each other (if
This damn bloody cold/flu/whatever isn't shifting but I'm still getting stuff done, albeit slowly.
I've been trying to finish off the builds that I started for this project one at a time. It's sort of working but I still find myself occasionally flitting between them. I'm glad to say, howeer, that this one is done!
It's very loosely based on my favorite ramen shop in Tokyo and I went to town a bit on the details. The main walls and floors are laser cut acrylic with the little hut on top from card. It was mainly painted with rattle cans and copious weathering was added with inks and pastels.
Some of the elements are available from Here and some have been scratch built. I really need to sort out a switch for it as plugging the ceiling lights into the battery holder everytime is a bit of pain but as it's not essential to the look I haven't done it yet lol
Onto the photos (which are a tad uneven colour wise, apologies for that). There's also a video at the bottom with dodgy 'sound effects'.
