    Default Perplexing Puzzles Plus kits Old West Hotel

    Another little kit from PPP


    The real name is the Old West Hotel, it will be a restaurant on my layout.



    The parts, as with the other kits from PPP the walls are great , but the details should be in somewhat thinner wood.


    Primed with gray from rattle can.


    Trim , doors , windows and walls painted with 2 different Vallejo greens.


    Window frames and staircases assembled to walls.


    Base and floor of porch assembled and painted white.


    Assembling walls.





    Roof drybrushed with black acrylic.


    Walls fully assembled with window blinds.
    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    Trim


    Trim assembled.


    Porch and staircase assembled.











    Stair steps assembled.


    Flexible white glue for roof assembly, with strips of tape holding it together.


    Fully assembled but still need finishing touches. Very impressed with my new camera and 30mm Macro Lens.

    Filling the joints on the roof.


    Roof looks much better now. Added several chalks and dullcoated it.





    Still need to touch up the paint on the sides of the porch and such.

    What did you use to fill the seams in the roof?

    White glue , but I dusted it heavily with chalk before the glue dried. When everything had dried I dusted the whole roof with several colors of chalk and then sprayed dullcoat on that.
