Thanks Tim. The photos were partly taken by my cellphone, so I hope they are clear enough to see.

Thanks for all the comments received. The next few days I will be doing some roofing so I may be absent for a while.

In making the roof on the engine house, I added some extra wood to the rafter tops. My effort here is to make sure the lower edges of the roofing dosen't hit inside of the top sill plates.




I have started the roof by putting on the purlins.




I have painted the first coat of sub-earth. The paint used to do the sub-earth, I used Josonya Acrylic Earth, thinned with blue windshield washer fluid.







That's all for tonight. Thanks for looking.
Rich

Rich, This is looking good! The sliding door mount is a good idea. The coloring is very nice.

Thanks Bill. A lot of members on the forum are more experienced at coloring buildings and scenery than I am. I strive to better myself with each build I do. If anything looks out of whack, just jump right in and speck up.

Rich, I'm liking this more and more all the time. Very interesting how you have worked three
structures into one great looking build.

Thanks Bob, but that statement you made got me thinking I have less scenery to do because the buildings take up the extra space!

Rich,
Can you elaborate a bit on how you used Jo Sonja paint to color your wood. Since they do not look
painted I assume that you put it on and then wiped it off or that you made a stain of it.

Bob, I used the Josonja paint for the earth color on the base only.
The colors I used to do the wood siding were different. I will dig into my notes and get back to you on this. Thanks

Rich, your engine house facility is really taking shape, and looking more & more interesting with each new piece added.
I hope your going to add some lighting to it all.

Thanks Greg, but actually I was thinking more of adding lightening, like in my avitar! That would add a lot of exitement for a night shot better than just lights.

Whoa! So I nip out for a few days and come back to this! It's coming together really nice. Love your idea for the sliding doors (stealing that); I was trying to figure out how to set the height of my wharf/dock so that my deck boards would match the rail height...not sure why I didn't think of just using thicker boards - thanks for showing me that.
Cheers,
Dave

Bob,

My first thought with the bare wood, was to use a light acrylic paint in a wash. I didn't go with it because I prefer to use chalk and alcohol for wood. The main reason is the way it dries, flat and smooth to the touch. Chalk gives a solid color without being a heavy" color like a two-coated paint you see on real structures.
On second thought, I wanted to achieve a peeled paint effect but didn't want to use the stippling method or a rag. I went with the products in this picture.






I used both products shown, on the right lower corner of the bottom piece of wood wall.



I waited for it to day just a few seconds, then I used some weathering chalks at random, form the following two pictures on top of the crackle medium.







As you can see in the next picture, this is a long drawn-out process, but I didn't like the look I was getting, so I try other things till it gets right to me.




After the chalk dried, I went over the wall with light 320 grit sandpaper, then used a light Tamyia Deck Tan wash, 50/50 with 99% alcohol and a little of the Dr. Ben's Camoflauge weathering powder mixed in, before the wash dried.



This combination was pleasing to my eyes, and it is now finished.


If I try this again, I think I need to make up some samples to use as a guide. I do notice that some paint products dry up after no use for a while. When mixing more alcohol to a chalk slurry or more water to acrylic paints, you could go overboard by adding too much alcohol or too much water. My Floquil paint collection is a prime suspect. Perhaps that is one reason to re-open the jars occasionally to make sure they are ok.
I hope your question got answered, if not, give me another shout. Thanks.
Rich
