Its nicely done but the wood clapboard walls could have been weathered more to complete the building look.

Nail head impressions would make the walls pop more.
Lifting assorted clapboards randomly would also greatly add to the detail.

When we look at model buildings the biggest and first thing to catch your eye is the ROOF. The rolled roofing doesn't match the look of the rest of this model build.

I would rip it off and apply wood shingles or raised seam real metal roofing or panels of corragated iron, properly rusted and weathered. This would change the whole look of the build

just my opinion.................mike

I need some assistance.
The more I look at that track it's actually not the look I wanted. I believe that is an Atlas track section.
Other than "hand-layed" track, is there a commercial track that would look more realistic?
I hate to pull it up but I will.

the track, well you could get some shinohara flex track i5t comes in codes 45--55--70. You could paint the ties soft southern pacific type grey and earth, rail brown, mud.......I am talking a few of these each in that foot of track to give the track variety in the ties. Then make a dark wash of alcohol and ink and simply coat the ties with it.

Code 100 atlas track doesn't look proper on sidings.

it would show the ties weathering at various times and offering variety.

I know I did a diorama with that, see if I can find it and post a link to the album.

altho I never put in stones gravel between the rails and the ties, you can see what the effect I was trying to get by painting the ties different shades of aging.

here is the link

Thanks Mike.
I am really looking at the tie plates areas. That is certainly not realistic. It is code 100.
I guess I really should have thought that one thru a bit more before I used it.
The painting I can handle.

Johnny
