Thanks. I actually meant the boards on the buildings.
For the structures, the larger building front is individual boards. The smaller structures are kits with sheet stock. The larger structure was built by @Jim James and was a gift from the Zalma Branch. For the other structures (which are wood kits), I attempted to match Jim's weathering, and used a Tamiya gray primer and then a very light misting of matte white from Tamiya. Then I used some craft paints and the techniques from Jason Jensen on YouTube. He has a nice "How-To" play list including this video that is probably most relevant:
I used some rust colored and green washes (Vallejo) and Pan Pastels for additional weathering, including the metal roofs.
Hope this helps,
Its a cold early January morning at the Blue Front Bakery in Weir City. The crew is in the back baking away and a warm stove will greet customers come sunrise. Happy New Year All!
Mmmm! I smell bread.
Wow. That looks fantastic.
Getting real close to completing this structure. This is a Mine Mount Models kit, that they sell as "Wilson's Fine Mustard." I have been building this out for 2-3 months as the "Kansas and Texas Supply Company" for Weir City. A "Kansas and Texas Store" or "Kansas and Texas Supply" appears in several old newspaper ads. It needs a few more trim and roof details, but pretty close to calling it done. This is posed on a diorama, as the Weir City section of the layout is not currently set up in the train room (garage).
Incredible work as always Bob. I think you could slap a old time photo filter on that and pass it off as real.
I agree with Ethan!
Leave off the stack and water tank and it’s a great feed mill.
RJ- can the micro lux railbrown paint be brushed onto the rail or does it need to be sprayed. Thank you
I spray all my track a mid brown from a can.
With a visitor.
Tony, I spray with an airbrush, but I am sure it can be painted with a brush. I use a micro brush to touch up areas. You might have to make a couple of passes.
Bob, that structure for Kansas & Texas Supply Company is a work of art for sure.
Thanks all for the kind replies here. I will try to finish up a few details this week and call it done!
