I have been working on the walls for the bait shop recently. I wire brushed the clap board siding to provide the wood grain. Then I used Rembrandt pastels for staining the clap board. I then lightly sanded the siding to show wear on the edges of the clap board siding. I raised some of the ends of the siding with a No. 11 blade and used a pin to make the nail holes. I then used the damp brushing technique for the color coat and then several coats of a light A/I solution.

I placed the dry transfers. I was very lucky that the large ones came out OK. Also, I cut out some of the printed signs, sanded the back on the larger ones to make them thinner and worked them into the clapboard siding by using a No. 11 blade and cut them along the edges of the clapboard siding. Since the printed signs were glossy, I used a flat acrylic clear coat to dull them.

The bright red paint at the bottom on the first picture will not be seen once the walls are assembled.

After looking at the last picture, I am going to redo the trim around the door.  It is to wide.

looking real good Steve! your build is coming along nicely!  I need to experiment with using pastels for the base color, rather than for weathering.....I'm a "dry sponger"....

Steve,
Great job, love how the signs came out.  The contrast with some sharp new signs, and others old and faded is a really nice touch.

I have erected the walls for the bait and tackle shop. I also redid the trim around the screen door.

Thanks Tom and Karl.  It seems now that I spend more time trying to make my models look old and dilapidated, than actually building the model. It is more time consuming to make a peeling paint than to do a sparkling new paint job. But it is well worth it.
