Construction Company done

That should be it.

     Yesterday and part of today I set about to complete my construction company site. Yesterday was spent making a paling fence to sit on the rear boundary track-side and then installing all of the fences and office building. The chain fence is from Gold medal Products that I sprayed flat primer grey dusted with a bit of rust then another light spray with the grey again. The paling fence was made using small pieces of Northeastern scribed siding and 4 inch HO gauge posts. They look a tad too big but I think they pass the 3 foot rule. I then gave it a wash using the brown and black Panel line paints and set it aside to dry under a weight to stop it from warping.
    I added the small details and grass tufts after first dusting on some weathering powders to make the ground look like it had had oil spills.


     And with a few added tufts and a couple of pallets with left over pieces from the GHQ kits

The shinny stuff is tacky glue. I took the shot before it had dried
 Then I set about adding all the completed kits except they all do not fit. So some just have to sit outside the fence.



     So that is another project that has been in the melting pot for a while completed.
So until next time, thanks for coming by.

  5. Hi Lads
    Thanks for your nice comments. It was something I had thought about for a while. It fills a nice empty space.
    Now whats next, hmm buildings in Ponca City need building. This town has been on my to do list for many years however I have not had the inspiration of what sort of buildings to construct.
    Thanks again and have fun.
    Regards

  9. Hi Lads
    Thanks for your comments also Dwyane and Jason.
    I have just ordered another BDL168 to allow me to make all of my mainline turnouts blocks so they are in view on the Dispatchers panels. So that will probably be up on the blog in a while.
