Variations on a theme... The Woodcutters'

Ok guys, as I can't install the dueling shacks for now, (the layout is in France, I am in Belgium for a few more weeks,) I thought, well lets move on to the next build. ( I know Brett is anxious to see his kits come together....) A step higher on the difficulty ladder :) ..

So, I decided to start with the Woodcutters Shack. Already some time ago , but only now a little bit presentable. As always, I like to put in my personal touch, variations on a theme so to speak.

The construction of the edifices is done, but no final patination yet. So, still a lot of work in that department.... Same for the marvelous details. With each kit I am overwhelmed by their beauty.

Here we go...

  • Shingles look really good. Did you just paint them Gray and then dry brush with some lighter grays and off whites?

  • Great colour and texture. Really stunning.

  • Yes Alan, there are no powders used here. But I will do so later when I add moss and more dirt particles. I did paint them almost one by one to get the difference betweem them. In between layers, some brushing with wire brush and light sanding to get structure and taking off color on the edges. But like I said, more patination will follow.
  • Very nice.
  • Love your work RG, most notably the natural variations in the coloring/weathering of the various components. Really like the ladder rungs too!
  • Amazing attention to the wood finishes, and your distinct style is wonderful. Love the weathered tar paper roof.
  • Exceptional. A joy to look at.
