FOS - Free Kit Finished

The roofing is a light wash of Floquil grimy black while the gas sign is Floquil reefer white with PanPastel white streaking. The signs are included in the kit although a couple are from my stock sheets.
Here is the finished model. I think it is a really nice looking little structure. It is actually tiny and will work great for another drop-in scene. I had it built and detailed in a couple of afternoon work sessions...George Dutka

The stack is dipped in my rusty mix (steel wool in vinegar) which is all that is needed to weather metal castings. The wall began with a coat of Hunterline Creosote, when dry a full strength coat of Floquil grime is applied. I used PanPastel's and Bragdon Powders to highlight the wooden walls.
Some boards are pulled up and nail holes applied.
I added the post braces which are not in the kit. The licence plates are reduced from a FOS O scale kit. Newspapers and a few detail pieces from my parts box are also applied. Everything is applyed using Canopy glue. The gas pumps are rusted up also.
The ground foam and weeds are Scenic Express.
