Adding signage and finishing touches

Here I have printed on glossy photo paper and weathered with some Tamiya chalks

Image

I mounted the photo paper on to a piece of styrene and painted the edges a rusty colour.

Image

Cut out and applied to the side of the roundhouse.

Image

And applied to both sides of the roundhouse.

Finishing details

I have recently purchased the new PECO PSG-1 Pro Static Grass Applicator

Image

And I have been very impressed with the results that I am getting...

Image

Image

I wanted to achieve a random "weed" effect as opposed to a perfect lawn of grass and had messed about using course string and other foliage that all looked unrealistic when compare to the other fine modelling of track, ballast and locomotives etc.

Image

Image

I think that it is good to use a variety of different lengths typically 4mm to 6mm around trackwork

Image

And longer grasses and weeds up to 10 or 12mm

Image

and of varying colours applied sparingly
