Good to see someone else back in the saddle Marcos, it’s been a lonely ride recently. Great progress, very distressing, but even better that it’s restrained too. Love that door handle – is the key on the other side?

Did a couple of filters on the inside to give it a more aged look. Added tile to the upper floor, and painted the rolling shutter a base color of dark steel gray/rust brown to do chipping with the next coat of color. Also started building window shutters.

Thank you Martin. Actually I did the holes from the "outside" to the "inside".
I primed the shutter and you can see it better. Here are some closeups:

Outside:



Inside:

Strange coincidences, I’m playing with this kind of metalwork right now too – looks great although I’d just query the holes – assuming they’re entry holes the metal around the hole could a bit more concave? Yours almost look like exit holes…from inside the garage? Whatever, excellent work

Thank you Ryan. lets see how my attempt works out. If it does not, Ksmetals could be an option. Thanks

I wouldn't think a homemade version would be too hard to make for thin metal sheets. Don't know if the thin metal can handle the extra wear for battle damage. Might be a case of making the holes first then embossing the sheet. Interested to see how this turns out.

Late find...K+S has premade corrugated sheets. 16134 might be the best option. As HO = 1/87 and O = 1/48.

Thank you Jerry and Ryan. I think I am going to go with a homemade version of the corr-u-gator, and go to the arts and crafts store to get some metal sheets for embossing. I want to get a damaged look on the shutters. Something like this:

I think a lot depends on the type of steel roller look you want and open or close.

Jerry's idea would work.

A second option is what Nick did. Looks like a sheet of plastic and smaller strips to give the rolled effect.

A third option is a more corrugated look which this might make your life easier.

If the shutter is going to be closed then just use a piece of plastic card. I would use a scribing tool and cut the horizontal lines in it to the right depth. Clean up the edges and paint.

Thank you Tim and Cheyenne. Thanks for following. I haven't had much time to work on the project lately. This weekend I will work on it for a bit.
Can anyone suggest how to make a steel rolling shutter? I have a couple of ideas but maybe there is a simpler way out there.

Great work Marcos it looks dead right/in scale so it should all fall into place (excuse pun) when the rubble’s piled up under the sagging chunks

It's always fascinating to me how there's a good handful of fellows on here that can take cork, blue insulation foam, or plaster and carefully carve out beautiful brick walls and stoneworks.
Looks great Marcos, cheers

You are right Jerry, they will be hanging. But I left them "up" while I work inside the interior. It is just a lot simpler if they are not in the way. But thanks for the observation.

Brilliant solution to the concrete and rebar floor. But wouldn't those parts be hanging down because of the huge weight ? I recall seeing alot of destroyed buildings looking like that ?
Great job so far though,

Thank you Joaquin and drabslab. Buildings or structures in dioramas are usually scenography to create a "stage" (a "scene") where you want to tell a little story. Your models, both vehicles and figures tell the story.
