Finished My Bar Mills Brewery. The diorama is just in it's early stages. Still have not decided on how to make this diorama appealing. It will be my first real attempt at doing one.

Bill,

You've done a great job with the model. I like the color. What paint did you use? BTW, I didn't miss the Dutchman Ale sign.

I like the looks of this background structure, and will probably scratchbuild something like it in the future.

Good luck with the diorama, and please post more photos when you get them.

Bill, You've done a fantastic job on the brewery! Great modelling and, yes...very nice colour tones. As you've mentioned this as being made as a "diorama", will it eventually make it onto a layout?

Bill,
Very nice job on the background kit.
I was fortunate to see some advance pictures of Bill's work.

Nothing to do with your modeling but there is a real Shipyard Brewery in Maine.
It is Maine's largest microbrewery.

There is also a Gritty Mcduff's which is a Brew Pub and not a hardware store.

Interesting where kit manufacturers get their names from when producing a kit.

Bruce,
I used Color Traditions "Jungle Green" Acrylic
paint. Used The W#alMart gray primer, with a 40%A&I wash over the finished paint. I know most do not like to use cheapo paint for their structures, But I use lots of bracing on the wall before primer and paint.

Bill, I'm not familiar with the "Color Traditions" line of paints. Is it a craft paint? Where do you buy it?

BTW, I have scanned in a bottle cap from my latest Shipyard brew. Maybe you can use it somewhere on the diorama.

Bruce,
First of all, thanks foe the bottle cap . I will start planning on where to put it.

The paint is craft acrylic paint. I buy mine from AC Moore, which is in competition with Michaels.

Bill,

Outstanding structure, I like the colors and the signs a lot. You must figure out where to put that bottle cap sign in the diorama.

Nice work!
