Here are two updates. First the Dodge Ram with chrome parts. Ordered some parts @Chromebricks and added them on the Dodge to get a more realistic look. Only the rims are not available in chrome so i spraypainted them with a chrome effect spray. I like the result ;) And the second part of the update are the new selfmade street markings in my town. Overpainted all the original markings and replaced them with own selfpainted ones. So i have three lanes and the streets look more like in NYC. What do you think? Btw tried to get a used look. I hope you can see it. Thanks for watching, rating and commenting. Suggestions are very welcome ;)
About this creation
Added new pics. They show you an update with "left turn only" and "fire lane" markings i made today :) Nice eh?
Hey Reid. I used masking tape which I put onto some cut resistant base and cut the arrows and the letters out free-handed. Then I put the tape stencils onto my streets and started painting. Removed the stencils very carefully and let them dry. So I could use them again. all other stuff is painted directly on the streets free-handed. Used Revell paint in several colours.
Hey Reid, that's really a great compliment that I could inspire you doing your own NYC style town. My street markings for the three lines have all the same distance. Six wide for one lane and six long for the gaps between the stripes. Good luck for your work. Hope this helps you a bit. In German I could describe it better ;)
Hey Stephan, hab vieeeeelen Dank für deinen tollen Kommentar. Freue mich sehr drüber. Waren aber auch echt teuer die Teile. Für den Ram haben nur die Chromteile ich glaube 26 Euros gekostet. Aber hat sich gelohnt. Danke auch für dein riesen Lob! :) Hab einen starken Hang zum Realismus und daher stecke ich auch immer viel Mühe darein :)
Ohh, you painted dozens of bricks? Never noticed it ;) But i'm not ashamed too. Using paint sometimes is okay. The only and absolutely no go for me is cutting Legos. Thaaaaank you so much for your kind comment my friend, i really appreciate it! :)
Oh yes, i agree with you. Love the new chromed front. I'm glad that you like it all so much especially the construction barrels which i like very much too :) Thank you very much for your nice comment mate!
Wow! Love the chrome upgrade! It makes the front grill look Ram tough. I love the shot of the city street. It really looks like I'm looking at New York City . The streets look great and I must say I like the construction barrels. Most Impressive !
Thaaank you very much Stephen ;) Lol, i think nobody will tell me off for that i spraypainted the rims ;) But i can understand it well because it's not the Lego way. But my motto in this case is: to live and let live XD
Thank you very much for your nice comment my friend. Yeah the chromed parts are a very nice touch on every model. But i agree with you, it's really expensive but also a great quality. The parts only for the Ram where around 24 Euros.
wow sven you did get some chrome mate , ive had about 3 orders from them now and im getting more , good stuff but expensive but well worth it looks brilliant love the black and chrome it just goes together so well
