      Great day of modeling (not that the modeling is great, but that it was great fun).

       

      Primed the steam engine, put legs on the water tank, added pilings and got the site prepped on the layout. Here are pics:

       

       

      Cheers!

      Its all come together nicely, Jim.  You have a fine model.  Are you going to weather the wood or let Mother Nature handle it?

      Mother Nature is way better at weathering than I am, so that's my preferred route. I'll be weathering the metal bits some, similar to what I've done so far. Need to add another layer of grime and dust. Lots of details needed.

      That would be cool. And at least bring it so your local tribe can enjoy it first hand. And please post pics when you do!

      Got a bit of time to paint and start to weather the steam engine. The basic paint job here is flat black applied with an airbrush:

       

       

      And to weather it, I'm using weathered oxide, grime, and dust, all tru-color paint, all dry-brushed on.

       

       

      Gotta do something interesting to the top of the stack (there will be a spark catcher up there) as I was using that to move the model around during weathering and it didn't get any love yet.

       

      Cheers!
