Who's Your dada?


Okay. Finally. A mini scene in the Emerson House by brinca dada. This was not supposed to be the first scene to debut in this structure, but the death of our color printer is keeping me from finishing the set-up I had originally intended to post. I did this condo scene quickly Sunday morning and it's not perfect but I enjoyed the challenge of working in a smaller scale. I've already started to tackle a third scene and have an idea for a fourth. The challenge is my stock supply which caters primarily to 1:12. We'll see what comes of this...

Oh!--and you'll notice that I altered the brinca dada kitchen sink. The original chunky sink fixture was not playing nice with "realism" and so I replaced it with an ELF Miniatures tap. It was very easy to remove with a gentle but firm tug and twist of the pliers. The original faucet popped off clean and the ELF tap fit like a glove.




The Goods: Sofa and lounge chair are brinca dada; coffee table is a cap from cologne; side table is Lundby; screen, colorful pillows and pendant lamp are Minimodernistas; dining table is AG Minis with a plexi top finish; dining chairs are brinca dada; kitchen units are brinca dada; all accessories are Lundby, Minimodernistas, ReMent, Mattel, and standard hobby store finds.

  1. I love it, it's just so retro it reminds me of Vegas and 50's film Noir

  4. Hi. Glad the ELF tap worked well for the Emerson kitchen. I've just made the first ELF 1:16 kitchen - currently ready-built, but will be available as a kit as soon as I've written the instructions!

  5. It's not easy to see that this scene is made in the Emerson House, which I'm not sure is a good thing or not, but I really like it anyway!

    Using the ELF tap was a stroke of genious, it looks so much better now! And you used one of my favourite colourschemes, pale turquoise and red (funny enough, I love the combination in miniature, but have scarcely used in it my real house :-))

  6. It shows you how much creativity goes into a scene, I didn't recognize it as the Emmerson house,
    but I think we all agree Brinca is the Big Daddy. C

  7. My elder assistant points out that should be " brinca is the mac dada". C

  8. I like what you have done, my dear! VERY mod-cool, with the wall coverings. The faucet switch was needed, and looks great! How did you like working in the house? Can't wait to see your other rooms.

  9. hello! it's been a while since i've left a comment on here although i faithfully come back to view your blogposts. just wondered if you'd seen the fantastic mini houses that Skea Design make for funerals? (In Taiwan... where the Chinese tradition is to send off the dead with as luxurious "belongings" as is affordable...)
