I also wanted to try out another weathering technique using oil paints and turpentine to recreate fading and running colors. An old boxcar shell came in handy for this project.
I also dusted the shell with pigments. On the Ford Coupe for my hobo camp scene, I used one of the IHC body castings that came with a structure kit. I applied some rust patches and sprinkled rust powder into the still wet paint.
Here is a view of the finished scene.
I installed two light sockets from Brawa by drilling two 6mm holes into the baseboard
The forementioned hobo camp.
Another over-all scene with trucks and cars in place.
I applied some weathering to the shop walls. A clerk is watching the truck's manoeuvres.
Overall view of the fiddle yard box. Note the effect of the box art backdrop.
Thanks for dropping by. More to come. Stay tuned.
