Jump right in.































India ink wash was not dark enough to show through the small cracks in the paint so I used wood stain then hairspray before the acrylic white topcoat was airbrushed on. Lots of washing with a small brush and water to soften the hairspray to get the paint to crack and peel. Rust and moss stains are being added with artists' oil paint and then washed with thinner.

Thanks for your encouragement guys.
Continuing experimenting with this hairspray chipping method I tried it with two colors. After hairspray and green I sealed everything with polyurethane and let dry for a few days then hairspray and white. Not what I expected but interesting enough.

Kurt,

As others before me have said, very nice work.
I like the weathering you have shown in your pictures. A well seasoned modeler, such as yourself, knows how to achieve great weathering results. But, other new modelers, may not know the steps to achieve the results you are getting. Would you be so kind as to explain what you did with a piece of unpainted wall, from start to finish ? Either the green wall using the hair spray method, or one of the white walls? thanks

These doors were finished by using two coats of hairspray from the airbrush directly on the laser cut paper. 20 minutes sprayed with two coats thinned Poly Scale Reefer White dry for one hour. A little bit of cracking happened by itself but most of the chipping and peeling is done under a 15X binocular microscope with a stiff brush and lots of water. Have to pay attention because when the paint lets loose it really starts to come off. This was the first time I ever tried hairspray. What I learned is that it needs to have a darker base for the effect to show at this small scale. My results are random chance of humidity, temperature or the fact that everything is contaminated with cat hair. Your results may vary.

Glad you guys want more photos but as you know it is a tedious process to upload each photo and hack the code to get them to post on this site. But if there is interest I will include more "how I did it" content. Thanks for the confidence but I am no old hand at this. This will be my second attempt at a craftsman kit build.

Last time I had a layout with trains I was 12 years old. Hard to remember back that far. Think I will go for a diorama with 6 inches of track for this one.

Looking really great. Although I havenít tried the hair spray method, I have tried the one that Vallejo or the like had with good results
