That is a really nice looking stone wall.

Beautiful rock work.  The coloring reminds me of Brian Nolan's work.

Thanks!  :)
This is how it looks now after all the filters and dry brushing is finished.
I used a lot of pictures of masonry buildings in Colorado as an inspiration.


I'm quite satisfied with the result.

I started on the plethora of windows and doors for the project.
These older Grandt line castings are good!
Not a flash to be seen anywhere.
I primed them with Badger Stynylrez primer before painting them an old wood color.
Then I used hairspray as a chipping layer before painting them offwhite.
The chipping was done rather lightly with a small brush.
A dark grey pin wash from MIG was then applied.


The glass I use is microscope slide covers. They are really good to use when you have an interior to show, as there's no distortion.
They are quite delicate though, so I divide them in separate panes to avoid big sheets that may break easier.

Very nice chipping effect. Subtle but significant...some weathering "gurus" overdo it, IMO...I think you nailed it!

I started the staining of the wood.
I use Saman #202 water based stain.


When dry it will get a light wash of dark grey as well.
I think it makes a good old wood color.

I've assembled the Saloon entrance.
The wood parts are weathered to match the plastic.


The slide cover glass really shows its value here.




I'm really satisfied with how the build is progressing.

Thanks!
Made the panel over the entrance.




It's really fun to build in O scale!

I made a window frame for the door as the plastic part was missing.
I even overlap joined it....

Excellent work with the peeling paint look.  8)
