First Thursday of March and I'm still knee deep in February. Was able to get two of the longer walls completed and glued in place. With all my preaching about adding bracing to keep warping at bay, I noticed that the repeated washes I had added to my roof had warped it fubar and as a result it no longer fit snugly. Thus proving the adage that all glory is indeed fleeting. Back to build another and this time perhaps with coffee stirrers to allow some flex? Or maybe paint the roof first to seal it?
Doc: I agree, anything The Doan models is top shelf and something that I admire and aspire to. Nowhere near his level or expertise but its in the journey. I really like the streaked paint weathering you modeled and the color. The two combine very well to give a realistic vibe.
I tried to mimic that streaking technique using my wash on one side of my barn my pulling down with my brush instead of dabbing it on. It was inspired by the effects you achieved by dry brushing. I'm posting two pics, one of each side and each technique used. They both look good and equally pleasing.
If any of you participating have added some details or are still building like me please post your progress.
