I've started on the Bret's brewery kit from Campbell in HO.



Content of the kit.





Some of the tools I use.





I started by measuring the parts and identifying them with the numbers from the manual.





I add woodgrain with a wire brush.





I cut out the windows with a xacto chisel blade, then I stained the areas which were to be glued together.





I add nail holes with a Trumpeter rivet wheel.





As you see, the wall lines up on the right side and the left is offset.





After staining the walls with india ink and alcohol, I paint the peeled off paint.

I use turps on a brush and while the surface is wet, I apply the acrylic paint which then pearls up in places to look like peeled off paint when dry.





I used a light grey green paint.





Painted walls.





The trim was painted green.





I glued the walls together.

















The floor is glued in place. I added a hole for the stairwell.





Support beams under the floor.



This is as far as I have gotten now.

Michael,

Looking great with the weathered wood and subtle colors, nail holes and simulated board ends.

I love the subtle colors of this build, Michael. Certainly not overdone, but does give a nice weathered look. Looks great.

Looking good, Micheal.

This is one of my favourite of the Campbell kits, an one I have to build myself. Watching with interest.

Cheers, mark.

Michael, in the 2nd picture we see your tools. Can you tell me about your pin vise? Is that a manual vise or is it powered? If it's powered who makes it?
Thank you

It's a battery powered drill from MicroMark.
It's actually a screwdriver that they sell a chuck for.
Worth every penny!

Impressive job on the stone. And your choice of colors looks very industrial.
