Thanks for the compliments, guys.
Had a few hours over the weekend to play a bit more. I used a dot filter technique to add weathering to the roofs which I will elaborate on a bit later. I also decided to repaint the wooden roof walks to show signs of paint being worn off using the hairspray technique.


First I painted the walkway a tan colour for raw wood. I used a mix of sand and grey that I had laying around.


After it dried a masked off the walkway and sprayed it with a coat of Finesse hairspray (anything cheap is good). I let it dry before painting the final colour on it. If I had wanted to have chipped paint, I would have sprinkled rock salt on the wet hairspray.


I then put a mix of black and grey-blue in the airbrush and sprayed a few light coats on the walkway, until it was well-covered. My paint thickness and air pressure weren't perfect but I thought "It's coming off anyway, so what?".


Here is the final shot after rubbing the black paint with a wet, soft brush until I was happy with the amount of wear it was showing. My paint coverage was pretty light so it came off very fast in spots. I found afterwards that the underlying wood was too bright so I gave it a coat of brown acrylic wash and once it is given a matte varnish coat will likely add some powder weathering.
Comments, welcome.
Cheers,
Dave

Hey guys, thanks for checking in. My build is on hold until I get the new hobby room set up. I gave the On30 (Geezer's lounge) an update.
Cheers,
Dave
