|My finished shack pack barn is ready to go on the WRD layout. The Mail Pouch sign will face the roadway and adds greatly to the finished look of the model. I dirty-ed it up a lot.
As usual I gave the walls a coat of Hunterline weathering mix. This was followed by a wash of diluted Floquil grime and tuscan red. The door trim is Pan Pastel white applied once paint was dry. The walls got various Bragdon powers with a good dose of brick red to beef up the overall look of wall colouring. The photo captions tell the rest of the story...George Dutka
|Hunterline weathering mix, wash of Floquil grime and tuscan red is applied to the walls. Floquil grime is brushed on the roofing where it will show.
|The Bragdon powders are what make the look of the barns weathering and colouring pop. For added interest I added a tire and some scarp lumber to the awning. Extra roof patches are also needed since the roof looks in rough shape.
|The rear wall is plain and will not be seen by anyone other than my train crews and the odd spider through the summer months.
