Hi fellows!! This is my second building made from Hydrocal casting. I bought only 3 walls and had to scratch the front wall, made from wood stripes, and the roof. I did my own wood shingles,and they were cut in laser. Now I have to work in this clean roof and paint the front wall, first stained with black india ink.
Hope you enjoy!!

Lucas,
Good to see you back. Neat build.
Where did you get that patched wall casting? I have one like it that was a gift.

Howdy Lucas,

as usual, a beautiful work, with a nice weathering, and a good choice of colors !
I see this walls on eBay, very interesting to make many freelanced old west style buildings!
The price is good, but the shipping price in air mail is hard !
Lastly, that remains of very good parts to make some nice building!

Sincerely!

Lloyd

Thanks guys!! Randy, I didn´t seal the walls because I use very diluited paint for staining, and if I seal, paint wouldn´t fix as well.

Hi Lucas,


I can't tell you how much this makes me want to try doing something like this.

It is beautiful

I also do not seal the stuff (hydro cal) when I am staining.
It does recieve the stain better un-sealed.

the scratch wall (front) is the best.

I'll be watching you and learning...  Grin

After two days of work, front is painted and weathered!!  Grin I used, Tamiya XF-4 Yellow Green as a base colour, then did a mate coat, and a wash with black ink.
And still needs lot of work to do!!
