I like the roof a lot better with some weathering.

A little late to the party but welcome to the forum. You can learn alot from the folks here and don't be shy in asking questions on "how to" stuff.

I agree with Dave in that the roof should be toned down with some light grays. On your next build try having the tar "bleed" down the roof towards the drip edge.

The exterior rafters added much more stability to the roof, good job.

Again, welcome to the forum.

I went with quite a bit of grime towards the bottom since I imaged there would be piles of tires and other junk leaning against the walls.

That's looking good. I worked at a garage when first married and your level of grime is similar to what I remember.

Thanks for all the comments.  I managed to wrap up my first build tonight, and here's the result:

That's a winner of a first building. You certainly understand the techniques and have a good sense of detail. I enjoyed watching this one come together.   Do you know yet what your next project will be?

Thanks Opa George.  I really enjoyed the weathering part since that when it started coming to life.

I've amassed quite the collection of kits so far, but my next build is going to be one of the fos scale foundations kits.  I want to take what I've learned and do it on something I can finish in a week or two.

Very good for a first build!! I hope you are hooked on structures now and looking forward to your next project.

Question for you. The wall with the fan in it looks like the clapboard is running upside down. Is this just an illusion in the way the drybrushing turned out?  Just curious as it caught my eye.

Keep up the great work!

Definitely!  Although I wont have space for a layout for another year, I'd like to learn what i can to make the models at least look realistic.  When I was younger I had plastic kits, but never the patience to build them properly. hahaha.

Yes the clapboard on the rear is upside down, and I realized it when I first when through the kit, but I didn't want to wait for a replacement.  I've heard great things as far as support from KC's workshop though, so I'm confident that if I took the time to reach out, then I would've been sent a replacement.

No worries it looks great and I know from experience it is easy to accidently cut clapboard upside down. (ask me how I know!!!).
