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.

I actually thought of leaving it alone after the 1st coat of paint, but I decided to make it look a little more respectable. I might build a 2nd kit and do it more run down.

So I added a 2nd coat to the walls, I wanted this house to look taken care of , but just a little weathered.

The walls had nail holes litely added, a few clapboards lifted, and a dry brush of Floquil SP Lettering Gray.

I also dry brushed the windows and doors. Problem was they looked "whitewashed" when I was done. A little drybrushing of the brown toned it down some. They don't look as gray in person as they show up in the photo.

I added the corner trim to the end walls except for the front left (looking at the house). That trim was added to the addition wall. This is done because these 2 walls abut when glued together.

A coat of light A&I solution was applied and allowed to dry over night.

 The walls were assembled to make your basic box.

The small piece for the end of porch roof was glued in place and the building was set aside to dry.

The roofs (rooves?) are supplied laser cut, but there is no relief cut for the bend. I measured, marked and lightly cut the addition roof, and tried out it's fit.

That's it for now. Next up, the foundation, windows and roof.

Looking good, Raymo.

Depending on the roofing material, you might want to mark parallel lines on the roofs before you glue them on.

Cheers, Mark.
