Al Sijood Palace in 1/285th Scale

Right now I am working on this new piece. This is the Al Sijood Palace in Baghdad Iraq. This will be a resin cast kit that comes in several pieces. I’ve taken some liberties in scaling this building down, the actual building in 1/285th scale would be about 16″ long … I’ve cheated a bit and got it down to a more reasonable 10″ long while still maintaining an impressive size. So far I have done about 75% of the front facade, see the image of the real building to see the area that I’m working on right now. This is pretty early in the development of this product, many more details will be added to the facade pictured below.
