Hi Dal
its really starting to take shape now.. I'm loving the little details .. all you Dio's have a great 1/6th scale "eye".. must take a long time to track stuff down ?


Cheers Steve Very Happy , yeah it is starting to come together now. The 1/6 eye?, drives my missus mad especially when where out and I spot something! lol! , then again, she is now getting as bad bounce bounce I have found that often repainting dolls furniture pieces can be a real help.

Where will the magician poster fit? Crying or Very sad

Is that the Battle of Trafalgar above the fireplace?

Ah yes, the magician poster, that is going into the extension part of the study cheers . As for the painting over the fireplace, I am not entirely sure? It could be?

I think the painting is "An English Ship in Action with Barbary Vessels". It's in the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, so not the Battle of Trafalgar.
(Jake's version has been a little cropped.)

You're very welcome!
It was remiss of me not to provide the artist's name.....which is Willem van de Velde II.

Looks like the English are really kicking some pirate arse in that painting.
Interesting little detail. Notice the many holes in the English ships sails from cannon balls fired by the pirates in an effort to dismast her? Obviously unsuccessful, as she has triumphed with cannon-fire of her own and knocked the masts off both her opponents, probably by using two cannon balls connected by a chain.
These battle must have been awesome to observe.

England does have such a wonderful and extensive tradition of maritime art.

Jake's Study Rebuild, take three! - Page 5 48160784421_02d8208bef_cProgress report by Blonde Actionman, on Flickr

Hank is in the study with Jake updating him on their progress, "Well Boss, we are nearly finished, just need a few finishing touches then we can move all your stuff back in" Said Hank looking rather happy with himself,
"That is fantastic news! It get's quite difficult trying to get any work done in the Arms!" smiled Jake.

That "adipose" pic is uncanny! Shocked It looks exactly like a scene in a digitally animated motion picture! The lighting and the detailed set create an extremely cinematic appearance.

While waiting to get supplies I have been adding bits and pieces back into the study. Here are a few pics.

Simply setting the desk back in place really changes the generic space in to a cluttered, atmospheric office that looks like it's been that way for decades!

The desk is amazing! What is that? An old jewelry box, perhaps?

I love Jake's wristwatch, too! His entire outfit looks so perfectly in-scale, including the drape of the fabrics, which is not easy to achieve in 1:6 scale, especially for heavier clothing items like denim jeans.

The 4th pic from the top, the wide shot of the study, reminds me very much of the work of one of our favorite 1:6 modelers. I fully expect to see Baghead himself walk in to the scene.

What supplies are you waiting on? Do you have additional detail work in mind? Or is it for more major construction?

Cheers David! I wanted to keep the cluttered, almost chaotic look to Jake's office to show it is a working office. Yeah the desk is made from two old jewellery boxes that I chopped up to make his battered old desk bounce

Ah, Jake's clothes, they are a mixture of hot tots, bbi and basic 1/6 clothing, his boots are U.S WWII paratrooper boots slide under a pair of Steve Rogers jeans, his top is generic stretch top I found on he bay and his watch is a modern action man watch which Professoer Gangereene fan gave me. In fact my wife often Jokes that Jake's clothes cost mre than mine lol!

Ah, you caught me, the colour scheme of the office is based on Nick's Paranormal a investigators nd expeditious hero, Professor Challenger! However, the compliment you have given me, well there is no higher praise than that! so I will happily except it Very Happy .

As for work left to be done, its really just small bots now, finding a few more bits for the office, skirting boards and trim for the ceiling. Oh, and I also want to get Jake a chair so he doesn't have to keep standing up! lol! lol! lol! . The extention to the study still requires some work, but once I pick up the supplies, hopefully it wont take long to finish cheers cheers cheers

Oh how I wish Baghead could come walking down those stairs bounce bounce bounce bounce

Oh ain't THAT the truth!
It so often astounds me that I'm able to buy a garment that would fit me SO much cheaper than a 1/6 scale version.

Loving all the clutter in the study. You must have been collecting suitably scaled detritus for ages!
I always think it's the agglomeration of "stuff" that really brings any diorama to life.

Does your diorama have doors or some other closure in front to prevent the collection of dust?
Not sure how you could go about dusting that set-up.
Trying to vacuum would be a disaster!

Fantastic work Dal, definitely looks suitably cluttered and so realistic!

But, it's got me wondering what else you want to add and where could you fit it in?

Thanks Barry cheers Yeah 1/6 clothes can be a pain for the cost, but sometimes you have to pay for the look you want.
Yeah, I have been collecting odds and ends for years, anything usually that catches my eye that I think will work in 1/6 scale. As for doors?, no mate my dio's don't have doors so every so often the duster has to come out! lol!
