10-Hour Model Making

New semester opens in about 2 weeks time (YAY!) and my sketch book (which is supposed to be at least half-filled now) is still empty. But, last night I did what my other coursemates might not during this break (I think, maybe). I made models! Here's the story.

My family is about to build a new house nearby Kuala Lumpur. We bought the land, and the next task is to design the house. So, my parents went to an architect, which thankfully, I am yet to be one, cos you know, dealing with my family, especially my mom is not an easy thing, I'm telling you (no offence mom! hehe). So he designed one according to my parent's idea and needs. And my mom didn't like it. He designed another one. My mom disagreed. He redesigned. And so on and so forth. One day my mom asked me about the design of the roof, which she thought could be better. And words slipped my mouth: "Plans and elevations alone wasn't enough. Models would help you to see the house better." Oops! I said it. So my mom asked me to use my 4-month model making at the studio to help "visualize" the plan with her desired roof.

So I drove yesterday evening to Sri Gombak to search for essential things. Thank God I found all the things I need at a bookstore. God, the mounting boards at RM2.60 a piece! My faculty sells it at RM3! Hampeh! So at 8pm, I started drafting and cutting. And finally done at 6am! Hoho. Really feels like the good ol' days at the studio (but minus my friends). Thanks to Farah who kept me chatting til 4am. At least there's a sense of friend, though "virtually".


Things essential in making a model (my coursemates surely had these enough)


The plans and elevations. These were printed. Tak aci! We did it ourselves back at the studio.


The damn windows and doors are nightmares to cut. I cut myself when doing them.


First glued pieces.


House begins to take shape.


O yeah! finally done after a "gruelling" 10 hours (though it's just a basic model. the "proper" one should have windows and doors, the frames, the glass, bla2.)

At least I have something to say if the lecturers see my empty sketch book. Heheh. To Farah, here's my 'projek' I've been telling you about.
