Hi

The canopy may be slightly too high perhaps (measured scale height at 12 feet) but hope it’ll be okay I can live with it anyway 

Happy Easter, stay safe

Regards always

Bob

Evening guys......

Hope all are well....?

 

With a weekend off and not being on the Arley roster took advantage of the glorious sunny weather (although with my 'horticultural hat' on - please can we have some rain) spent each morning in the garden followed by and afternoon tentatively returning  to working on the layout, by further painting of the parcels platform with hopefully an acceptable base concrete colour and a dry brush of a lighter grey to the base walls......will turn my attention next to the platform slabbing tones.....

Evening Guys......

Can I say a sincere and huge thank you to you wonderful guys for the kind messages I've received lately, they have been very much appreciated.

 

The base colour has been applied to the parcels platform 'paving' and 'edging'......will allow this to dry prior to adding further tones and weathering powders.

I know I've said it before Bob but I have to say you really do have wall painting down pat mate.

Regards Lez.

Evening my friends.....

Weathering powders are in the process of being applied to the base colour of the paving.....will take this steadily.

Intend to apply weeds/ debris into the base of the wall too.

That looks great Bob. I always think... If you can look at a model and imagine how the 1:1 scale surface would feel to the touch then you've hit the nail on the head.... You've hit this one dead square! 

 

Excellent stuff.

Thank you for your very kind comment John, much appreciated.

I am finding that if I do a little area at one time lightly, then take it back down then reapply, overlapping with an adjacent area in a 'patchwork' approach I can vary and build up the tones...?

 

Regards always

Bob
