Nice work with the air brush Perry, a bit more grime down the centre of the roads maybe? Or are the cleaners being driven hard in a newish shed?

Thanks, John.

I'm glad you approve of my efforts. What I really liked about your kit was that it didn't have to be built to look exactly the same as everyone elses. There is so much scope for customisation that it was easy to build exactly what I wanted. With your kits, modification is positively encouraged by their design.

:cheers

Perry

As I mentioned in a post above, I had to use flash to take those photos due to really poor light. The contrast is greater and the colours are darker in reality.

However, I agree with what you say about more grime being needed. The plan is to weather the shed and the floor some more once the track is laid. I can then make sure everything will tie in and look right together. It would be easy to add loads of darker paint now, but not so easy to lighten it later if I happen to go too far with it. :???: What I don't want is a floor that looks too different from the apron, or an apron that is too different from the surrounding yard, if you see what I mean. :shock:

Except that the apron would have been constantly washed by rain and bleached by sun Perry ..............:hmm

You often get a fairly hard line along concrete where it goes under cover.  Also, inside, you'd have oil and grease to clean up but outside there would be more ash and mud I'd have thought - I presume they'd pressure wash/steam clean in the open before entering the shed.

Just so, Petermac. :thumbs

They're all reasons why the final weathering needs to be done with the track laid, the inspection pits installed and the groundwork done. To just paint everything in isolation probably wouldn't end up with the overall effect I want.

I appreciate your very helpful comments. They're all things I need to bear in mind. Thank you.

:cheers

Perry
