Scratch building station Rosental part 2

Scratch building main station part 2;

The cardboard basis and the window frames are both ready at the first part of the building. The window frames are colored with a small paintbrush (picture 1) in the color Wood 71.077 from Vallejo paints. After curing of the paint they will get a small surface treatment with very fine course emery paper (K360). This is only to get the paintwork aged (picture 7). With the airbrush the cardboard basis will get a full spray in the color Light Grey 71.050 mixed with some White 71.001 both from Vallejo. The next step is to cut small strips of veneer (pictures 3, 4, 5) and apply this on the cardboard base with a diluted layer of wood glue. When this is dry the complete veneer walls will be colored with a White Wash of Weathering Powder (picture 6) diluted with simple tapwater. After drying the whole white area will get a surface treatment with emery paper (picture 7). Important is to get a natural aged look which can be achieved by adding a little more press on the emery paper at some areas. To achieve some chipped paint spots on the walls we use a sharp small knife to scrape over the white paint until it will loose from the wall (picture 8, 9). They surface treatment is no finished and the window glass can be cut out. This glass will be made out of Vivak® transparant sheet, which is available in different thickness in each scale model hobby shop. They window glass will be glued in with Micro Kristal Klear (picture 10) because is dries transparant (picture 11) and doesn’t harm the material. It also doesn’t leave any glue blush like cyanoacrylate glue does. When using Kristal Klear glue it is important to paint first the surface that has to be glued. For the application of the paints the brushes which are used are from Humbrol (picture 12). This brushes are from a superb quality and there is also a big range available for different applications. Not to advertise specific for this brand but it is very important to purchase good quality paint brushes, because it performs better, gives a longer lifetime of the brush and the quality of the job will much better. At the end a good investment in brushes pays back.
