Kit Building / Homemade Trees
« on: May 09, 2019, 03:07:19 PM »
Hi Guys:

Here's something thought you might be interested. This tree is mad from yarrow after it has bloomed and died off. Saw some around a parking lot and asked the owner if I could pick some. I think I may just plant a couple in the back yard. The top picture is how it came off the bush

Here's a few photos. The first one is of the the dead flower as I picked it. The second one is of it after sprayed with liquit adhesive and then sprinkled with Woodland Scenics #T1363 Light Green Coarse Turf.

Cheap way to make nice trees.

Will be building the Sierra West Logging camp. My friend just wants me to build the structures with out bases so he can install them on the layout easier. It would be a rather large diorama.

Kit Building / Avram's Bakery FSM JS10
« on: June 23, 2018, 03:43:54 PM »
Hi Guys:

Starting on Avram's Bakery. Need some opinions on the color for the walls. I used George's formula.

1) Apply Floquil grime as A stain by dipping brush in the paint and thinner. Let dry.

2) Apply Floquil Foundation by the same method.

3) Apply light A&I Stain.

Let me know if you like this color OK.

Thanks Karl
