Well late last night I decided on the roofing material for the engine house.  I went with a corragated metal with lots of rust and tar spots.  I chose a black rolled tar paper roof for the roof vent.




Now I need to go to the hobby shop and purchase some paint for the windows my jar of oxide red has shall we say dried up.

I know there has been a lot of talk about how to do window glass in these threads.  I have been reading some of the favorite ways you all have.  I was wondering about what would be best to create a dirty looking window for the ones on the shed side and rear of the engine house?

Any suggestions on any links in here or elsewhere?  The "weldbond" white glue has me thinking, does anyone know if this is cloudy but still see thru or is the haze so much you can not to see in at all?

On some of my N Scale buildings I have just put a very light wash of Testors Plastic solvent over the windows.

That seems to just give them a crazed effect.

Might be worth a try.

Hey Rod, I tried googling Testors Plastic Solvent?  Are you reffering to their plastic glue?  Didn't get a hit on the plastic solvent?

Oops sorry Ryan

I should have said Testors Liquid Plastic Cement.  Just a very small amount should do the trick but try it first on a scrap piece to see if it is the effect you want.

Well I have started another building.  My Car facility warehouse.  I have laid out the ends and I was able to pour them friday night.




Than I laid out the sides and poured them Saturday night.




They are ready to be carved tonite and the corners cut to fit.

 

I took the top of the engine shed the vent and trimmed off one level of the vent about 12" scale inches.  It is much more proportional to the building, and looks much better.  I installed lights up in the vent to light up the inside and a light over the front shed doors I will post a picture soon of that tomorrow.

Here is the Engine House with windows and the lower roof vent by 12" scale inches.







I tried the testors application on some of the windows to make them look like they were broken.  I dulcoated the rest of them with a frosty dirty look.  The two wires coming out the back are for the inside lighting, I will conect them to my power poles when I install them on the layout.

 

Here is the Car facility wall castings.  I am almost done the carving.




I have to scribe in the stome markings, than stain it.
