Magical dragon shingles?
No open flames around this project: you wouldn't want it to go "puff".
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Dan, I am following along, too.  Nice ideas for modifications.  I had to look up "dragon scale" shingles to see an example of the style. They should add huge visual interest.

So I cut the windows and doors from the sprues and cleaned up the nibs and have them ready to paint.

Before getting horizontal for the night I painted the insides of the walls flat black.

Then this morning I gave everything a coat of the Hunterline Driftwood Stain.

On my last couple of builds, I've applied HunterLine Driftwood, and after that dried, applied the actual paint (relatively thinly.)  That gives a weathered, but not decrepit to the paint coat.
