    Default Structures For the N.I.W.T.

    Starting this thread because I have some more structures to build for my layout which is listed in my signature below.

    First up is a kit I started a while back so I finished it this weekend except for some signs and people.
    Itís a Blair Line Greeneís Seed & Feed that Iím going use as a feed and seed supply.

    The most difficult part of this build was the stairs which all individual really small stair treads.

    Next I picked up this 3d printed church and it will fit perfect in my main town.

    First I sprayed the whole thing with DullCoat and then the white I gave a wash with my Bombay Black, Serpia and Brown India Ink and 91% alcohol. I sprayed the roofs and steeple with Mocha Brown.

    I then used Bragdon Weathering powders to weather the roof.

    I will glue it all together after I get the Glue-n-Glaze I ordered for the windows tomorrow from Horizon.
    I’m still trying to decide whether to paint the window frames or not.

    Maybe just an India Ink and alcohol wash to bring out the mortar lines - often window frames were stone with wooden mullions?

    The seed and feed looks great, only one slight thing Ed , the roof , although the colors are super it looks as if there's a pattern in the rust, maybe a couple of random streaks would do the trick.

    As for the church , a real light gray or sand color for the window frames.
    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    Yeah I was thinking the same, that’s a pre-printed stick on roof.
    I wasn’t real happy with it either. I will try something and see if I can improve it or I’ll just replace it with a wood roof and shingles.

    For today I have the Bar Mills “Saulena’s Tavern” except it won’t be “Saulena’s”. It’s going to be either a watering hole named after one of the many I haunted in my youth or a drug store/soda fountain. Probably gonna be the latter as I spent a lot of time at one in Chicago called “Rosen’s” using the phone booth and drinking cherry cokes with no hangover the next day like the taverns later. Yeah drugstore/soda fountain, that’s the way to go. Just gotta figure out how to make window signs.

    Ok reminiscing over,,
    Heres the kit with bracing installed. The gray piece is 3 parts glue together for the foundation and side walk.

    I remember that one by you Jan, well,, now I do I completely forgot about the covered stairs you did when the itsy bitsy stair treads made you see red.
    I’m missing one of the stringers for the stairs (A call to Bar Mills fixed that) and the decals which I don’t need because I’m changing the name anyway. If I can’t find a way to make new window signs then I’ll just omit them.

    Four more structures done. These are for my farm scene.

    The House is a pre-built that I received and all I did was a little weathering wash.
    The barn and wood shed are part of a Laser art kit. The roofs are from a JTT shingles sheet thanks to @Ender and weathered with Bragdon powders. The buildings are done with a black,Brown & serpia India inks and alcohol wash first then coated with Vallejo Chipping medium after which I applied an antique white acrylic over that. I used a stiff brush,water and paper towel to get the peeling effect.

    The metal building is from a set of two structures (canít remember what kit). This one had no door front or back so I cut one in and trimmed the opening with some strip styrene and painted the strips grey after I coated the whole structure with Dullcoat. The rust is a wash from Vallejo after which all three of the kits were sealed with Dullcoat.
    I took a lot of photos during the builds and hopefully some day I can get some build threads posted. Right now I need to get some real progress on my layout as it has been taking too long because Iíve been getting off course much to often.


    There is some documentation and research in these threads.
