Looks great, Tom.

Some nice colours to make things 'pop', too.

Cheers, Mark.

That proximity to the roundhouse will make things easy for the call boy :-)

Dave,

I should have a rooming house nearby but more than likely, the call boys will find their man in the bar.  8)

Nice work on the roof Tom, like this kit, wish I had picked one up.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!


Thank you. The galvanized tin color was a good base for starting the rusting effect. We had a great Thanksgiving and hope you did as well.

This kit is still available from FOS and it's on sale.

Tom,
 The finish you completed on the roof came out great.
Think that the Anita Metallic base color you started with is a new one ?... can't seem to find it at the craft stores here.
 Like the 3 different colors of rust that make it look used.
This thread is making me thirsty.
 Tommy

Tommy,

Thanks very much. I've had this galvanized color for about three months. If I hadn't seen a roof reading Bob did using it, I would never have bought it based on the metallic title. This is a Rust-Oleum product, I paid $1.49 at Hobby Lobby.

Now go grab a cold one.  8)

Great weathering Tom , what a nice simple building , love it.


Jan,

Long time, no see and thank you. Happy to have you stop by for a look see. It was a fun build and is a very simple building and a great stand alone as well.

Wonderful job so far Tom.  I really like the idea of splitting this one up like you're doing.  There was just something about that contiguous block of structures that just didn't look right to me when this kit came out.  The roof looks great.   ;)


Bob,

Thank you and also for the info on the paint for the roof. Splitting the kit was a thought after I cut it to enlarge the small bar. The kit looks better to my eye now anyway. I'm liking the AK paints and washes the more I use them.

I glued all the walls together that comprise the second part of the Pub Crawl. All the walls and wall signage were done last month when the new angled wall section was cut to fit.






More in a few.

I plan to light this one but won't do it until later. To plan ahead for the lighting, I made the three roofs removable for later access to the interior of the building.

I  drew the interior wall lines on the underside of the roof panels.



Fast forward and the three roof pieces are complete.
