Big job ticked off.



If I had one big job left that I wasn’t looking forward to it was the gantry, last night I bit the bullet and finished it this afternoon.

Maybe a bit heavy weathering on the gantry, and the bases need to be merged in. I cut some cartridge paper into strips and glued them to the dowel at what seemed suitable spacing before painting it white and applying the rust.



Thanks for looking.

Would we expect to see weathering a bit more concentrated above each of the three tracks where trains have passed under and deposited smoke? 


Also where the pipe goes through the wall, a bit of flashing may help. 


I'm being super-critical .....what you've done is great.

That looks superb. I think the way you paint the rust patches is excellent. Just needs a few streaks down the wall where the frame meets it. Great work.

Thanks both of you for your kind comments. I hadn’t thought of any of these and my thoughts on the pipe entry were a bit clumsy in comparison.


Motivated now to get this finished!


Thanks again.
