    What do you all think of my rust'n things up? :confused:

    Added a water tower; it's for the head, they kept the old style because of it's novelty.

    I put rust on the Water towe, the garage awnings, around the A/C, around the air
    vents, and on the "rain gutter."

    The rust job looks good Ken. Makes the scene look like there has been no maintenance LPBs there for some time.

    Matthyro-- You don't think it's too much?

    Did I get the water over-flow rusty marks on the tank believable?

    Ken the rust looks fine, however........................ Them 3-mile island vines are distracting. The dark green part looks great but the glowing light green parts are what I'm talking about. If it's just the way the light/flash made em' look in the photo but they don't look like that in real life please disregard. :) BTW it's good to see you are really getting into the modeling!

    Tyson- Thanks. The WS Burnt Grass is what I used for the light "dead" leaves.
    The pic does distort the color, plus when done you won't be able to get as close as I was.

    As far as the modeling... I finally said, "ARGH!! Just start doing it... :mad:
    The others had to practice, too." :oops: :rolleyes:

    Soooo... With meger tools in hand... Off I went. :eek:

    Ken the rust and water overflow looks great. What I meant about the maintenance LBS not being around is if they were they would have put a fresh coat of paint. Most companies these days wouldn't spend the money so the look of your tank is realistic. Keep at it and keep posting photos please.

    Matt- ahhh! now I see.

    Great, I was going for the "been around for years, but parts of the place have
    been remodeled/updated, expect not a lot of upkeep out-in-the-sticks kinda place."
    (that's a mouth full...) :D

    Actually I'm wait'n on some paint in J.D. colors. So's my LP Painters from the
    Preiser Paint Co. can paint the off colors the building was painted long ago.
    (can you say... Mini scenes) ;)

    Ken, you know you have been neglecting thata building project when kudzu starts growing on it! :)

    Looks good, btw. Now if I could just get my 3 x 4 finished ballasted so I could start some buildings.

    Live Steamer- Thanks!

    McFortner- I did mine in reverse, since this is a Diorama.
    No worries! It's taken a year for me to get this going... I did more last month than all the rest of the time.
