|The mill got a coat of Hunterline weathering mix followed by washes of Floquil tuscan red. I normally put a wash of Floquil grime over the Hunterline stains but I went for a darker wood look.
I have shown you the finished Myers mill in an earlier blog post. Here is more of the construction on this South River kit...George Dutka
|I highlighted the tuscan red with red chalk were the wood is more protected.
|The tarpaper roofing is done in two colors. The shingled area is leftover BEST shingles from one of their mill kits I built last year. They gave me lots with the kit. The roof weathering is done with PanPastels, MIG powders and Bragdon powders.
|A close-up of my weathering products and the walls at this point.
|There is a template which works well to lay out the loading dock.
|Rust Texture is also used on most of the metal parts.
|A look at the loading dock. All the details are included in the kit including the pigeons.
