WIP Port Framboise
Posted 17 January 2010 - 04:28 AM
And today I built this Port using components from the 6259 Broadside's Brig, 6267 Lagoon Lock-Up, and 6265 Sabre Island.
While not having the muscle as my Redcoat Port Ettinsmoor, it can still put up a good fight.
This side I think is the least finished. I am still thinking about what details to put on this side.
I enjoyed making the wall on this side.
No, your eyes do not fool you. This IS a trap door that drops into the jail below.
Another detail of the wall.
I think it could use some more detail and I think I need to work out some kinks in the color scheme. I also want to do a wave job but I need to scrounge for parts.
What do you think so far?

The colour scheme works very well, I am particularly impressed with what youve done using the red plates to simulate the paint peel that lego use on their printed walls (why didnt i think of that!! - very nice touch).
To improve it just that little bit more i'd try and make it so there are 3 smaller sections of red rather than 2 large ones for that face of the wall - then it would match the prefab/painted components perfectly
You could also apply the same idea (red plates) a little bit further to the right (of the same wall) - just beneith the jail bars for that added detail, see how it looks as it maybe a bit too much red in which case leave as is having said that you could try it in other areas too....... i.e. here
great work indeed

Though, I have the feeling it could be more detailed, some more goodies lying around for example.
The red plates used as wall stones is an excellent touch, it breaks the plain white wall nicely.
Your picture quality is great as well, nice job!

Since the 32 x 32 blue baseplates have come back out it will make things easier.

It really reminds me of the classics, like 6265 Sabre island
