About the blog

This rambling blog is about building a simple layout in HO, the available space is rather small but the prototype was not built on the grand scale, most rural stations were merely a curved loop and a siding, which is easy to replicate.

Card modelling - 2

Now that I have some of the coloured Acrylmasse from Stangel, I can try the effect on the cardboard barn.

And now a first covering of the Acrylmasse using a stiff 12mm nylon brush from B&Q with a stippling action to good effect.

 Due to the light colouring, it is difficult to see the actual effect of the surface treatment however with a simple application of a subtle wash, the texture will be readily apparent.

And this is what it is supposed to look like............almost finished, it just needs a simple application of another subtle wash.
