  • SS Scale Scenics Portable Cement mixer

    Hi everyone,thought I'd share with you this cool little cement mixer.

    I've built this for use my Doan Towers construction diorama,that I'm still slowly working on.



    I used Durham's water putty mixed into the paint to give the concrete stuck to the drum look.

    And I tried to weather it,to make it look like it's been used and around for some time.

    Very nice modeling and also something that I’ll be needing. Have to check this model out!

      Now THAT'S a cement mixer! Very nice work. I particularly like the spill-over on the top.

                    Thanks! Rick,Louis,Jeff & Pete,for your kind posts.

                    Your right Pete! :erm: Maybe some LED brake lights.

                    Never thought I'd hear myself say this,but it was kinda nice not having to deal with lighting for a change.

                        Nice work, makes me think I should finish painting mine. The dried on cement looks great.
