The tubing in the photos is not mine.
I've been following a guy on facebook, who scratchbuild's motorbikes.
I am assuming tubes are from K&S Engineering.
I just checked my stock and its similar for both brass & Aluminium
PS. I was thinking about your weathered building the other day

Where did you get the thin-wall tubing?

Thnaks for the feedback guys.
This morning I finally found some aluminium tubing at a real scale to start my "Visman Rack"
Has anyone used these glues

Large scale rack [:-eyebrows]
I spent the cold day working on a "Nolan Oil Tank" in 1:24 scale. Nearly finished it and then dropped it..
. It looked like a kit on the floor
The second attempt came out much better.
More work to be done on this project.

Well apart from a little weathering and adding a few extra hanging bits, I'm done with this detail.
Time to move onto the Nolan Lean-to

Guys. Thanks for your comments.
Rich. I painted the walls back in 2005, using a dilute wash of $2 acrylic paint, then brushed on various chalk colours to add a bit of contrast. I find any sort of sealer spray changes the texture of my finishes, so I eliminate that process.
Neil. My web site link shows my brew [:-drunk] of Metho & black / brown shoe dye.
I give any timbers a quick brush and not worrying about covering all areas. This gives contrast. Fine chalks powders applied. I may re do areas many times before I am happy with the final result. In the end, it's all luck for me.

Great job all around. Really like the weathering on the fence.

It's late Sunday night and finishing off "Roland Rack", before [:-sleep][:-sleep][:-sleep].
Will take a few "Happy Snappy's" tomorrow.

Nice work on this structure so far, and I am in "awe" at your coloring of the stone walls. Do you use washes, just chalk powders on them, or both in stages? They appear very pleasing to the eye. I like the light carmel color, similar to the walls on Brian Nolan's Diorama. I am assuming, after reading your comments, that you never use dullcote when you are done coloring. That's ok if no one handles it. [:-thumbu][:-thumbu]
