Terrell commented about my shingles looking too new so I thought I would go ahead and weather them a bit. I will probably go over them again but this is how they look now.



I added a thin stain of gray and white mixed. Each was slightly different.

When dry, I used the sharp tip of my #11 blade to scratch in come grain.

To bring out the grain I applied a thin black stain of alcohol and shoe dye.

I will have to wait a day to judge the colors as they always look different when completely dry.

I thought a fresh look at the model at 10 days was in order.



I will finish the details on this model when figures arrive in the mail.

I've been adding a few details, figures and working the building into the scenery. So here are my final pictures for this build.








I'm not sure what they are discussing, but adding a few figures really helps the scene come to life.



Some of Goldie's girls taking in the scene.



Building a bird's nest in O scale is easy. HO is harder and not easy to see. Even harder to photograph.






That's it.

Fun building this kit.

Thanks for following along.

Darryl,

Just catching up again, this is an excellent constructed model. I like the looks of the colors used overall on all sides of the building, and especially what you did to enhance the look of the second story front of the building railings and false front top. Nice job.

Darryl,

Hard to believe this is HO scale. Iíll second the observation that the colors are terrific. They really add to the look of the whole building.

The details are so much fun to look out for, such as the nest and missing boards.
