Hi again Jaz,
Again some simply stunning pics and the devil in the detail is amazing.
It provokes some many “how did you achieve that” type questions / requests for more information .... also the scope / range of subjects tackled in such detail can only be applauded ..... no doubt your previous great approach of “want to learn, experiment and continually to improve” remains key and comes across loud and clear.
Did have a search back on here, to find your 2021 updates, part of which during the then major redevelopment of Goathland, you posted a series of paired photos of model and reference pics, thought they were great tbh (* anyone not seen them - well worth a look / visit 🧐).
If you were up for it / had the time, some step by step guides on some key aspects or pics would be fantastic ...... ?
Thanks again for posting, Happy Modelling for now, Cheers Norm

I use watered down opaque colours usually mixed with white for faded finishes,then transparent paints for weathering green at bottom where algae gets a hold, black for soot DCC powders are go old here for a dirt finish dull and powdery being the exact look you need
i used thinned black before powders and dribble down like dirt, I often run clean water than touch the coloured paint into the water so it spreads like dirt on rain water

Hornby shed, Bachmann coal bunker. The shed in not too shabby, the coalbunker has detail but the paint job is a major let down

I used white mixed with gray for the old shed look, then sone transparent green at base for algae growth,
I used the same grey for the coal bunker but added black paint DCC concepts powders, some non shiny coal substitute and a rusty finish for the bunker top hatch

I dribbled thin black into the grooves for deep shadows, and a touch of white for serious fading, both model gave good detailing just benefit from a better paint job imo.

hope these fit the bill.

In my opinion if you want a realistic look you have to consider each detailing aspect and attempt to get the best you can from it,
I update as much detailing as possible in order to get a more realistic look.

I added glazing glue for the windows I always get a circular centre as I turn it over adding more glue but taking the top off to add plastic sheet is fiddly and painting a window was fun, I applied with a lolly poppy stick one end curved the other end sharpened, the edges tend to be thicker then get thin towards the centre you can thicken the middle but so far not been impressed with that so just use as little as possible to get the job done

missing detail,so I slapped some paint on

some areas appear darker I s,ap water on add paint let dry repeat until happy, if wet stop or add dulcote or similar, if dry powder finish in similar colours DD Concepts powder works well here

usually when weathering I keep the project in the upright position imitating rain fall but I wanted extra depth so broke my own rule

Hi Nice work but I have to say the VW very unlikely scenario these days very much sought after vehicles no matter what condition and fetching big money :D Is Batman and Robin the real deal or is it Del boy and Rodders :unsure: Any how good stuff. Jim

As Batman is fat and short, not taller than Robin with a six pack, definitely Del Boy :D
