As always, Looks super.
I second Boilerman's opinion...!!!! Love that ramshackle shack. Got to try my hand at something like that...!!!
I find it harder than building a regular structure as they never turn out quite like I invision them when I start, they just kinda evolve.
Thanks , Mike
That dime in the picture really emphasizes your skill in creating that nifty little ramshackle building in such a small scale!
Thanks Ralph , I try to remember to put something in all pictures as reference but sometimes slips my mind.
Thanks Guys , Mike
Well , I got this done a couple of weeks ago but have been busy with a new toy (Post in non railroad).
Got the ghost town done.
Nice scene there; love the history in miniature.
Thanks Scratchy , Glad you like it.
Great little scene...Those shacks look like they've been there for ages....
Looks great Mike!
Thanks Guys , You all keep me cranked up!
I love this, I spent 20 minutes looking at all the detail like wood planks out front and the rusty truck.
I removed two photographs from your post as they weren't applicable to my question, which is: How did you simulate the rust streaks on the concrete beneath the metal portions of the building? I have several buildings I will be assembling and would like to duplicate that effect. I also have Walther's 130' turntable and would like to simulate rust streaks flowing down into the pit from the section of rails that abut the turntable.
BTW, you're doing a fantastic job from everything I've seen in this topic.
I used a good Artist's 4 OOOO brush and Poly Scale Rust (slightly watered down) and a final wash of cheap Black Acrylic.
Thanks , Mike
Hey Mike....You're spoiling us with all those great details you go to all the trouble to put on your structures...Great job...!!!
Are those fires up your way anywhere's near your place..?..Keep an eye out...
Gus , Thanks for asking . Some are about 200 miles north and some are about 75 miles east. We have had colm winds so they may be getting them under control.
Well , I finally got around to putting the Trailers in place in Valle Rojo. Bet they get sick of all the dust from the gravel plant and the trains going by all the time. Oh well thats why the rent is low!
Trailerpark looks great! I am always sad to see people having to live in a trailer park that doesn't have any pavement, but as you said the the rent is cheap! Great job!:thumb:
All the roofs (rooves?) look good, but especially the torch down. I can actually hear one of the wives saying "If we have to live in a trailer, at least I can have purple trim."
Oh , you know , those crazy hippies!!!
