Thread: New range of buildings. ModelJShip.

    Default New range of buildings. ModelJShip.

    Hello everyone, I am working on a new range of buildings in 1/1200 or 1/1000 scale. The buildings will represent Spanish colonial buildings. There are many different models, about 20, so I'll progressively put them on sale. The buildings will be made in resin and the price will be an affordable price. I add some photos of the first ones that are textured. I hope you like them.

    I would like to take the opportunity to publicly thank Alexander Meldez for contributing to the design and 3D printing of these buildings. Without your help all this would not be possible, so thanks for everything Alex.

    Looking good as usual Julián. I guess my next seaport will be a Spanish one then.

    I am now looking for some nice small Spanish forts to place on the headlands of a Caribbean fishing village or small coastal town Julián.

    These are the sort of thing. Not ones I already have.

    Just to fit in with your scale buildings.

    I show you some photos of the first batch of finished buildings, I have included a small fort at Rob's request.
    All the buildings represent a Spanish colonial architecture.

    Soon I will proceed to make the molds in silicone and then clone in resin.

    I hope you like them.

    Regards,
    Julián

    That small fort is magnificent Julián. Just what I was after. You can put me down for one of those and the town buildings as soon as they are finished. The whole set looks great.

    Hello, I show you some pictures of the finished and painted buildings. I hope you like them

    I will proceed to clone in mid-May (I have to bring resin from Madrid).

    Best regards,
    Julián

    Superb Julián.

    With that much choice, I can build a small seaport with just two sets of buildings or so. Also not loads of duplicates all the same.
    Thanks.

    This one is the San Gerónimo redoubt in San Juan! It's a much smaller fort on the east tip of the Isle of San Juan, opposite the more famous El Morro, which I think Julián himself made, that crowns the western tip. Nowadays, young people use it to hang out at night, smoke pot and for romantic encounters, which is poetic versus its original purpose, I think :)

    It would be great to see it made also!

    Where was this other photo from, Rob?

    And of course, EXCELLENT little buildings, Julián!! The sculptures are beautiful and very accurate, and the paint jobs very pretty. The look just like preserved historical buildings here at Viejo San Juan. I might have to buy a few after my economy cools down from the Great Ship Buy.

    I absolutely love the garden in the church's cloister. It's such a simple thing, but it gives the whole model so much life.

    There is no equal building, they are all different. I plan to put on sale in two different ways, the first one as an entire kit of all the buildings and the second option each building separately. That way you can buy the starter kit and then buy a separate building that you want to repeat.

    I'm glad that you like them. I hope to start producing on a larger scale in the middle of May, I need to get the resin first and until a friend of mine does not come from Madrid I have no option to get it.

    You've made an excellent range of buildings, very useful and very well done, picking out individual tiles on the roofs make a huge difference to the finished look of them.

    I'm curious about your thoughts on 3D printing versus resin casting, will resin be a cheaper production cost, or do you get a better finished product?
    Cheers

    That is superb Julián. Just saves a lot of time if the whole set can be purchased in one go. Now I must start researching some Spanish small seaports in the Caribbean to work up my model ideas.

    These buildings have been made in 3D printer but I have textured the roofs with putty. Then I made molds in silicone and later I obtained copies in resin.
    The 3D printing phase was made by another person that I mentioned at the beginning of this thread. I do not know much about 3D printing but I can tell you that without it, this would not have been possible since so much detail and with such straight strokes would not have been able to do it. My decision to make a roof in putty was because after seeing the building in 3D finished, I got the feeling that the roof was a bit poor and finally I decided to make the roofs in putty.

    Regarding the production costs that you mention, 3D printing is not expensive in itself. I guess the expensive thing is the design of the object.
    Cloning in resin is not necessarily expensive if you get a number of copies of a single mold (amortization).

    The main problem with 3D-printing is that it is a slow process that needs to be manually handled once in a while. Casting can be done rather quickly and in large batches, and then you let it set by itself.

    That is also true.
