I’m still doing the research and planning on my monorail, and I had some time this weekend so I did a little modeling. I added some shutter hardware to my long neglected ¼” scale country store. I doubt that I will pick it back up, but it felt good to be back at the bench. Grandt Line hinges and .010 x .040 styrene diagonal bars with Tichy rivets. Hairspray chipping.

I am glad you came back to this one! I just recently saw your “Altered States” page and I love what you did to them! I’ll have to print one out and see it in print, maybe I can get it signed by the artist!?
Don’t stop on this one! It’s too cool

a)  Looks good!  (of course)

b)  QUESTION:  If you've painted that diagonal strip and/or little hinges separately, how did you "hold" them while painting?  On sticky-side-up tape?  Or ... ??

Cheers,
Dallas

Thanks! It was good to sit at the bench after 3 months away.

Dallas, yes exactly, double sided tape. I sprayed flat black as a primer and the hairspray and final coat (Polly scale) all while they were stuck to a piece of wood. You get a bit of paint overhang to cut away, but it's no big deal.

On delicate stuff I often use the sticky side of a post-it note, gives you a handle too!

Wow Chuck. Nice work with the misaligned hinges and the different textures that you capture so well.

Thanks Ken and Naryan! Good tip Marty.

It's been hard to get some bench time lately, but I did finish the underside of the front canopy. I added water stains and some mud dauber nests.

Chuck,

Mud Dauber nests.  Back here we call them hornet nests.

But whatever they are called who would have thought to add them to a porch roof ceiling?  Another fine detail by Mr. Doan.

Created using???  Maybe plaster than gouache applied??

Curious I looked up Mud Dauber. Huh. They ARE wasps .. just not aggressive at all. Hadn't really thought about it .. since they pay you no attention I do the same with them.

Excellent detail!

I get mud dauber nests in my shed all the time, sometimes on the handles of little-used yard tools. They get in through a hole in the door -- funny thing is, if I open the door, they get confused. They'll keep trying to go through the hole (which is blocked when the door is open) rather than using the open doorway.
