Rollin,

Good start. Like you, I also like the Campbell kits. Haven't build one in 30+ years but loved to open the box and smell the sugar pine used for making the structures.

I might be toward the younger end of the Forum spectrum...never had the pleasure of building a Campbell kit. Eagerly riding along. 👍🏻👍🏻

Time to catch up this thread. Last week, the weather and my work schedule were keeping me very busy. Cold enough, even if it is Florida, that I had to move plants off the porch, etc. etc.
Well, where was I...
I wanted to pre-stain my walls, and then do some painting. Got the walls ready, scribed some plank markings and nail holes.
Bought some new items, including what AK Interactive calls Track Wash. Tested it on some scrap, found it very dark out of the bottle, so after diluting with thinner, this is what it looked like on the walls.

Then I used Model Master Random Tan, dry brushing the walls. I'm going for worn and weathered, but not dilapidated. This building is still in use, not abandoned.

While I was at it, I painted some of the strip wood and detail parts



Then glued the wall sections together
