I get them around the eves of the house. I have a number of old building pics with these and it seemed an appropriate detail. I just mixed up some fine powdered dirt with water and white glue (instead of wasp spit) and applied/shaped them with a toothpick. So, they are actually made of mud.

You have indicated you are just fooling around with this model and may never complete it. In a way that's too bad. It sets a new standard for 1:48. -- Russ

Wow, that's really just the Bee's Knees! 

No ... wait ... that's just the bee's nest ... looks like you didn't even model the bees or figure out how to properly model their knees.  So, I'm gonna have to say that you've really chickened out this time.  Angry

Not sure how chickens and bees go together, but that's a separate issue ...

Chuck,
I'll pay that one  Grin

It is great to see you back toying with the 1/48 stuff.  Serves as a reminder that I have to try harder, and can't pass off on the easy excuse that you are modelling large scale so the detailing steps will be easier.

Cheers,
Dan

Couple of quick checkpicks: Beginning the flayed paint siding on the front wall above the canopy. Still blending the typical southern rust on the corrugated.

Hey Chuck,

I was up along the Delaweare River today.  Came across a barn with a rusting metal roof on it.

Think I'll go back tomorrow and tell him his roof is rusting wrong!!!!

Hell that's beautiful.

There should be a Dave Robicheaux "Boats and Bait" sign over the top... all it needs is some mirage effect from the heat rolling off the tin.

Chuck I like the individual sheets, Why are they so different regarding the top edge? There seems to be a disconnect between the vertical flashing almost uniformly rusted and the variations on the sloped sheets with regards to the amount of rusting.

Could you please, please with sugar on top give a full tutorial on how you painted that corrugated siding?
Does it take money? Do I have to beg?

Seriously, please?

Yup, nice.
The chalky whiteness of the galv iron sheets is really nice.  Iron is still one thing that I've done a number of different treatments for, and still struggle to find a finish that I'm really happy with.  Modelling rural Australian stuff, getting good looking iron is kind of important.

The mottled and decayed timber font fascade is also a nice balance of contrast here, especially when comparing the upper very exposed timbers, to the more protected pieces under the roof line.

Thanks for bringing us another update Chuck...as usual, not disappointed.

Cheers,
Dan

It's interesting to see how you now translate your larger scale techniques so effectively to 1:48. This could be one of the finest 1:48 models of all time. -- Russ
