Sorry for the late reply, Wayne.

I use 'MMD Fast Drying White Putty' made by Squadron Products, Carrollton, Texas, so I'm guessing your local model shop may stock it or something similar.

This is the final post of my model Outhouse. I have finally got around to painting it. For a first time project, I am very happy with it. I have sure learned an awful lot doing it, and I would like to thank all of you for your help and advice.

I have a ton of projects coming up so if anyone has any constructive criticism I would really like to hear it now. While I learned a lot, now is the time to realize what, why, how, etc. to do it better.

Having just been looking at your silo, I was about to give you a hard time for not finishing the outhouse - and here it is :!: It looks really good, especially when set against the original. In my humble opinion, I think the wood walls could do with a tiny bit more shading to tone down the white and to pick out the planking effect, but not seeing the real model it may be that the model is fine and it is just the camera flash you have used which has washed out the weathering a little.

But it is still a very neat little model, which you should be very proud of. Well done.

Ditto Bob's remarks. I don't think the photograph does the model justice.

No, it's not the flash guys, don't use one. It does need to be dirtied up some. The prototype was repainted (just like the Silo Structure) in the summer of 06.

When I set up to do the black wash on the Silo's structure, this will get it too.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Wayne

This post will be the FINAL post (again) for my project of the Outhouse.

I have weathered this with a black wash. One drop of black acrylic paint to 32 drops of water. In my humble opinion it is a bit too much, but acceptable anyway. I tried to wipe it off immediately but it did not help. I cut the formula back to 1 in 50 to do the structure of the Silo and it looks much better. I will post that picture soon in the proper thread.

Wayne

That's a sweet little model, Wayne, very nicely put together.
