      I didn't think you could improve the looks of the stone wall based on the first time you posted them.
      Obviously I was wrong.

      I started on the plethora of windows and doors for the project.
      These older Grandt line castings are good!
      Not a flash to be seen anywhere.
      I primed them with Badger Stynylrez primer before painting them an old wood color.
      Then I used hairspray as a chipping layer before painting them offwhite.
      The chipping was done rather lightly with a small brush.
      A dark grey pin wash from MIG was then applied.


      ​The glass I use is microscope slide covers.
      It looks very good when you have interiors to show as there's no distortion at all in the glass.

        Nice job on the windows. How do you put the glass in on the double hung windows? Two pieces?

        Micharl,

        As others have mentioned earlier, Nice color on the walls.
        Saving your coloring method on the windows for future reference.

          I started the staining of the wood.
          I use Saman #202 water based stain.


          When dry it will get a light wash of dark grey as well.
          I think it makes a good old wood color.

            I've assembled the Saloon entrance.
            The wood parts are weathered to match the plastic.


            The slide cover glass really shows its value here.




            I'm really satisfied with how the build is progressing.

                Michael,

                Well done. I like the impression of weathered paint, especially the board left of the door, where it looks like the grain is showing through. Very realistic!

                  Thanks!
                  Made the panel over the entrance.




                  It's really fun to build in O scale!

                    Thats looking really good, yes, O scale is fun.

                    I'd darken down the broken edges of the louvres instead of the new wood look.
                    But thats just me, I'm liking the way it's progressing so far.

                      I made a window frame for the door as the plastic part was missing.
                      I even overlap joined it....

                        Nice progress, that Saloon entrance is sharp looking. Even taking the time to overlap joint your windows.

                            Michael very impressive store front. The wood grain and peeling paint are outstanding. Very well done.
