    Michael,

    Very nice build so far and everything ties together nicely. Very well done.

      I like how you're progressing with this.
      Making that tiny window is impressive.

          Thanks all!
          I've started on the front of the Pool hall:



          All is built up with wood, except from the door frame and doors.

              Thanks.
              I've finished the front facade for the Pool hall.
              It's just some small details to add.

                    I've started building the upstairs walls of the pool hall/saloon/hotel:



                    The framing is built up of wood, the siding on the back wall is scribed sheet.
                    The side walls are to be corrugated metal and the front wall board by board.

                      Stained the wall with vinegar/steel wool concoction.

                      Weathered whitewash.

                        That weathered whitewash looks great, love the way the nailhole rows stand out, but not too much, emphasised just right for that style of wall.

                        Also the darker patches within the overall wall look natural and give a great variation.

                        What was the peel / paint removal technique you used after the white wash? It looks great for a scribed wall.

                          thanks, I use the same technique as on the front with a little alteration.
                          I.e. that I soak the wood in turpentine and use a thinned white acrylic paint.
                          It looks rather ugly at this point....
                          The grooves gets paint in them etc.
                          When dry I use a fine steel wire brush and a glass fibre brush to peel the paint as it hasn't soaked I to the surface thanks to the turpentine.
                          The final step is to use MIG grey panel line wash, I let it flow I to all the grooves by capillary action.
                          ​​​​​​​That's it.

                              Michael,

                              Very nice effect you get with your weathering. Thank you for the explanation and video.

                              Mike
