Working on the second steam engine/locomotive maintenance/storage shed: part 5

February 18, 2011

Last week or on the weekend past I painted the wooden shed roof with Hawk Turquoise as per last time, but the shed walls got Regal Blue. This was in order to differentiate between the two for all players.

I haven’t been able to do anything else with it as it’s been really humid here all week and it’s going to continue into this weekend.

If tomorrow or sunday turn out to be drier, then all the ironwork/steelwork will get some red and I can get the gutters and drainpipes done, then commence the last fiddly bits of details like outside lamp fitting and noticeboards.

The basics will then be complete and I can move into weathering and protecting.

My resin EBay Horchs or Steyrs plus that heavy truck were all finished on wednesday. I’m waiting for the humidity to go so that I can protect them with Dullcote and let you have a look at some photos.

251’s are coming along well.

Opel Blitz has has extra black applied to cover bare plastic that was exposed during assembly when cutting parts from sprues or filing to ensure good fit/remove excess.
