'Little Boscombe'

Explanation coming soon!




'Little Boscombe'









The build begins. Trestle tables and cut to size length of plywood for the model base



Hand drawn cardboard lanterns to be hung in the shipping container with lights behind




Section through the high street, Christchurch Road, showing above and below ground



Lift shaft to Boscombe Policebox in situ





Hand drawn and water coloured metal effect for the tunnel



 


Section through the street showing underground pipework to the left of the Policebox. Lift shaft interior detailed, Policebox spray painted and tunnel in construction





Working on street level - incorporating the buildings from Christchurch Road. Adding hand drawn animals into the tunnels to check scale is correct



Entrance to the Hippodrome (Now the O2) under construction. Very fiddly


 

This model is very time consuming, but it's slowly taking shape






 






Awning to 'A Jones' shop added
 







The elephants are coming.....2 by 2 



Elephant parade, with baby in tow


   
Close up of the chained elephants 

 
Hand drawn the layers of sand and soil below street level. Added some dinosaur bones too..  


Entrance to Little Boscombe 


It's in-  just! Side panels, tunnel and front panel to finish...only 2 days until opening
