Great work Karl. I love the colour.

Ive managed to finish my shack and i have started my 6 pole shed. Below are some pictures.

Im contemplating tonong down the colour of the shingles a bit. What do you think?




Look forward to your responses.

Wes - nice job - I wonder if you have checked out some roofs in the neighborhood to get a feel for the colors represented - that would be what I will use to prepare mine.

Hi Wes,

I like the color variation on your shingles. My only suggestion would be to the soften colors just a bit.

You mentioned using A/I to do this. My concern would be that it would darken the colors and not help blend them together.

You might consider using soft pastel chalks (not weathering powders which have a adhesive in them.)

Light grays or even better yet a light tan color, would give your shingles a nice dusty look.

Just my .02 cents


Michael

Spent a little time today adding the top row of 'half' shingles and then the roof cap.



I guess the next thing to do will be the rafters and then on to the six pole shed....

Karl, you, too, have acheived a nice coloration on your shingles. I notice you chose to leave the frizzlies on the end of each and they do not appear to have been split or weathered on the ends - do you plan on any additional treatment to them?

Thanks Elliot,

Well, it's been quite a while since I was in here so I figure it's time to brush off the dust and try to get this ball rolling again.....

Details, details, details....

It seems that I have misplaced quite a few of the detail castings in the last couple of years, or possibly used one or two else where. I'm sure they'll turn up tomorrow when I have a good look for them....... in the mean time I have plenty of others to get started on.



As always with Bretts castings the clarity and detail is exceptional and there is next to no (if any) clean up required prior to prepping.

Metal detail parts.....



Blackened with "a-west blacken-it"... ready for some judicial buffing.





Resin detail parts ready for painting, atleast the ones I could find....



"wooden" items primed with earth/tan colour spray paint.
"metal" items primed with black spray paint.
