First layer was a base coat of brick red craft paint. After it dries, burnt sienna pigment will be dusted on and set with A/I #2.

Base coat


Have fun,
Mike Corley

Looks good Mike. I like the way that red came out.

Next I dusted the surfaces with Dr Ben's Old Chicago Brick pigment followed by A/I wash. This pic shows all the sides dusted and one end with wash applied.

Pigment and A/I



Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Mike,

Great red color youre using there and the weathering is very effective in its realism. Im enjoying watching each step.

Mike

Howdy folks,

The diner progresses a bit slowly, but...I did get the floor finished.

Have fun,

Howdy folks,

With the corner posts, sides, and ends finished, I have turned my attention to the tricky bits: the interior.

The interior is getting a four foot high wainscot made of 1 X 10 boards. The area above the wainscot reveals the insulation efforts of the kitchen crew. Old newspapers were copied reduced to 1/48 scale. That was some tedious work!



Here is a photo of the insulation on the back wall.

Have fun,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the encouraging thoughts. My back still aches from leaning over all those mini newspapers, lol.

Here is a shot of the wall with the wainscot applied. It still needs weathering, but I'll wait until I do all the walls and weather them at the same time.

Have fun,
Mike Corley
