Thanks, it's certainly easier (and less heartbreaking) this way than when you've got a substantial amount of the model built!  ;)

Hi Steve,

Great research! I like your method of printing out the building elevations in 1:1 scale to test clearances, I will need to shamelessly steal this way of doing it!  :D

Thanks Jimmy!  :)

No problem using this idea, I doubt it is my idea and suspect that I've come across it in the past by reading some long forgotten article.

A return to the northern tunnel mouth this morning saw some more weathering work undertaken.



I've tried to represent the water staining evident in photos of the real thing as well as adding some soot staining. This has been done using a dark grey wash, oil paints (for the water staining/streaking) and powders. I leave this for a few days before sealing everything in using a slightly dirty matt varnish to tie everything together.

It certainly looks like a well used tunnel mouth in steam days. Very nicely done.  :thumbsup:

Thank you so much for the kind words guys. I think that I'll have a go with another layer, but not until I can seal in the current lot in a couple of days or so.

Great work Steve, that looks fantastic! May I ask, what base colour did you use for the tunnel lining/opening?

Cheers,

Jimmy

Thanks Jimmy,

The tunnel mouth was mixed up from white, (very little) black and burnt umber oil paints until I thought the colour looked good and stippled onto the model. The brick interior liner is red primer with a heavy dark grey wash and soot weathering powder.

Thanks Steve, painting & weathering is definitely a weak point of mine, so the more information and advice I can pick up, the better!
