I was asked to do a walk through so here goes.
The completed building is given a spray of Humbrol Dark Earth I find it helps to seal things a bit and stop the MDF absorbing too much paint and gives a better surface to work on.
Next it was given a heavy drybrush of Khaki Grey a nice green - brown colour for a base with a large brush
This is not worked fully into the corners of detail as these are left darker
I used a Golden Olive Green to paint in a deeper stronger colour on some areas
The window panes were added with a blue grey , and then a little white added and the middle of the panes highlighted
Some light reflection in lighter grey added to the panes , and framework detail picked out in an Ivory colour
The planking is done with a 50/50 water / paint mix and painted in to the centre of the planks - this look bright when first done but as it dries it darkens
The same 50/50 technique is used to create the tiles on the roof
You can see from this shot the differnece as it dries.
The board walk is done with two lighter browns using the 50/50
Hand painted signage is added
It can take it's place in the collection along with the Gunsmith done at the same time
5 buildings done in the week not a bad output!
First shot of them all together - just on the dining table - some custom baseboards planned for later in the year.
Game on for the weekend
