FOS - Canal Street Luncheonette

The completed model ready for a home. I left the signage clean looking but the block walls are well weathered.
This tiny luncheonette is a FOS kit-of-the-month offering that was very simple to assemble. I spent most of the time painting and detailing the structure. There is a cellar door that one needs to build up and a neat looking roof sign. I added a 3D printed milk crate out front from Dave's Decals and a 3D printed trash bag from Mini Prints to the rear step. What's in the box No. 55 has some extra views of the kit...George Dutka    

Assembly is pretty straight forward. Everything fit together well with minimal sanding required.

The blocks are painted using acrylic paints. I used Ceramcoat drizzle gray with splotches of Anita's rainy day grey.
MIG red was brushed on the corners but sponged on over the blocks down low to appear like a weathered paint look. The upper area is a mix of acrylic gray and white sponged and dry brushed on.

I painted the garbage bag black with a bit of grey dry brushed into the still wet paint. Some weeds are added all around the structure. The wooden rear wall has a couple lifted boards and cut lower panels. It is a mix of India ink and alcohol, Floquil grime and PanPasel grays.
