Hello folks,

today I started with a big project.
In April '16 I got the idea to make a small "replica" of the Gorillaz Plastic Beach Island.... with light. Since this time I was collecting some materials I'll need to do this. I looked for some references and made my first sketches.
I know, I can't make all details... but I'll do my best to make the most of them :meow:

My goal to finish it will be December 2017. So, more than one year to work on it ^^

I started with the ground of the island. I made a small sketch of the shape and transfered them in a large size on the cardboard. After that I cutted it out and made a second part of it. The both tubes will be the bases for the island itself and the lighthouse. In the lower one of the ground parts I'll cut a canal for the cable of the light chain, but before I can do this I've to check where's the best place for it.
So... That's all for today. See ya next time ^_^

Like you see, I did something today. Especially the ground of the upper island platform and the lighthouse with light.
But at first, I started with the upper platform. I took the lower platform and made the outlines on a new cardboard sheet. Then I looked at a reference pic and sketched the lines from the upper platform at the cartboard. I also made some lines of the mansion, to know if the size will be okay or not ^^
I cutted the part out and made a second one, similar procedure like the lower platform.
When I was finish with it, I measured the size of the tube in the middle and shortened it. After this I took the upper platforms of this tube and started with the lighthouse. I also made the landing stage a bit smaller, so the lighthouse is closer to the island itself now.
I measured also the size for the lighthouse and shortened the tube for it. At least, I was putting the first light chain in the dome for the lighthouse , taped the both half sides to each other, so the light chain will be fixed in the dome. And I checked the light chain if it will work :D
Next time, I want to start with the scaffolding of the mansion ^___^

Well... I'm sorry I didn't updated this for so long ^^;
The last time I did something on it was just tear some newspapers into confetti. I also did this the most time today. But I also work on the upper platform again, atm. I'll make more pieces of it on cardboard, so I'll need later less of paper mache for modeling ^^' (to tear up the newspapers into confetti kills much of time... and my fingers).
Which I also forgot to show you last time was, that I've finish the first balcony (or the base of it) ^^

Now I'll be back on my ground and cut out more pieces from the upper platform. I hope I can show you later or tomorrow some ne pictures of it.

Today I worked on the upper platform and made some more cardboard pieces of it... all a bit smaller as the one above :giggle: so it'll hopefully get the "round" structure later. I also shredded some newspaper again. ^^;
I think I'll make now the part from the mansion which comes out of the platform ^^ Maybe later I'll give you another update, if not then the next time when I'm working on it ;)

I'm sorry if the pics are a bit too small this time >.< I hope it'll be better next time.
