And this is why I needed that repainted dresser!

When athousandsmiles sent me all those clocks, I immediately thought of Bilis Manger and his clock shop.




Look athousandsmiles what I did with your furniture!

Today I repainted some of the dollhouse items. I did not like the original light brown color of the furniture.

For the companion set I just mixed black and silver and now it looks much more metallic. My pictures and the light are not the best, but it was plain boring cheap black plastic before.

I also added some gold to both.

My whole Dresden tag is full of Photobucket pictures so I want to fill it with new ones. Last July we took a walk down to Blasewitz (with the Blue Wonder steel bridge) and Wachwitz (with the TV tower)

This bridge is over 100 years old and was the first that did not need a pillar in the middle of the river, so that the steamboats could go through easier.


View into the other direction, the TV tower in the far distance.


We're at the other side of the river Elbe now, I am standing with my back to it.


The TV tower was built in 1969. Dresden is surrounded by hills so it was needed to bring radio and TV waves into the valley. That's why Dresden also did not get any West German TV. Those that lived up the hills did.
Nowadays the tower is only used for mobile phone communications. Also you used to go up to the top and have a look down, but it has been closed for ages. There is a group of people who wants it to be opened again. I was up there last time as a child. I still remember the elevator which went up quite fast and made your belly churn. And up there you were outside, not behind glass.


And this is one of the many flood marks in the area. These houses are not directly at the river, so you can't imagine it rising that high and coming that far.

From top my sign reads 2002 - 1845 - 1890 - 2013 - 1862 - 1876 - 1900 - 1920 - 1940 - 1895 - 2006

Imagine these poor people, having just rebuilt and probably still paying of the credit, when they were hit again.

As a child, I would look at these high water marks but my father reasured me that it would not happen again in our time because now precautions have been taken (dams etc.) so the first one came as a surprise, it was no slowly rising river where you could prepare, but coming overnight from the hills in a flash flood, destroying everything in its way. Whole houses swept away. The streets looked like after a bombing. They said such a bad one would only happen every 1000 years and then we got another one just 10 years later. But they have taken huge effort now to build new bridges and change the rivers, so the inner city stayed dry this time.

Today I went to the craft shop to see if they had any new things. Ended up with a cooking pot and an iron for Alfred.

He seems not to appreciate it though.



Back when I did the pictures from episode 4x04 The Demon's Head, where Jim Gordon was tipping over all the book shelves, I figured now that I already have all the books out I could do another scene that I had planned for a long time.

It's from the finale of season 1 when Bruce realizes that his father had a secret, and is searching for the key to the hidden basement room (that will become the Batcave one day I guess ;) )

Some minutes later the room looked like this:


And here's the original:

At work we were asked to clean some shelves. A co-worker found this architectural model and asked if I had use for it. Of course I have! It's very small but I still love it. You even can take off the roof!

It stands 8" / 20 cm high so it will be too small for my regular figures but I also have smaller figures it might work with. And I need to give it a little color.

For this month's Sixth Scale Universe competition we are asked to show our kitbashed figures. These are my only two.

Dragon Jamie (Classic Adam) as Ianto and Max Steel as Jack Harkness from "Torchwood" and "Doctor Who". For fun I also incorporated a shoutout to John Barrowman's other iconic role as Malcolm Merlyn / Dark Archer in "Arrow".

And - Action! I did another “Alfred in action” picture. I used fishing line to hook him up to my kitchen shelf!
Here you can see how I built the railing: https://dieastra.livejournal.com/268343.html

Of course I HAD to do it ;)

Close enough! That's my scratchbuilt K.I.T.T. car Alfred is leaning on. And I even put in Camren Bicondova who took the original picture.

Here is the original link at Sean Pertwee's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BfMFZ6tHD6D/

And here you can see more of my K.I.T.T. model of which I am still very proud: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/18142.html

Also those NOS bottles arrived today! You can open them to store a pill inside.

A friend says that NOS is used to soup up race cars, providing a short burst of super high acceleration (Lucius would use it on the Batmobile, etc) and also is very dangerous and extremely flammable (Ed Nigma would set it around Oswald and use it to blow him up).

I love dark Alfred whom they said that we will be getting later this season, but I certainly also love funny Alfred! And this line from episode 4x01 was an instant classic. Selina (who will become Catwoman one day, you know) was balancing on a wall high above ground, and said to Bruce that if he wants to talk to her, he needs to come up as well. So he did.

Enter Alfred without missing a beat and apparently caring much: "Honestly you two, why can't you just go to the cinema like normal teenagers?"

And the fandom LOLed and there were gifs and life was good ;)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

So here is the first picture with some of the lovely things from the care package! When I saw the letter rack I knew immediately who would use it.

I only owned the letters before, everything else is new:
