direction we obtain rough surface.
This will perform for easy and good painting also

Hiya

Good stuff. If I may add a few tips of my own gleaned from various sources?

Rough concrete

A coat of Games Workshop, roughcote followed with Plasticote tan and then a very light dusting of lighter tan to give a variation to the colour.



Original on top

second option, paint with choice of paint and when still wet, dust with white pepper - if you sprinkle it straight on to the paint you get rough concrete - if you blow across the surface while doing so you get a much smoother concrete. See the flagstones in the below image

The visual sight distance of the lighthouse, in which has the flashing (white flash) charecter of Fl.W. 6 sec ( W. Fl. 6.0 Sn. 0,5 + 5,5 ), is 16 nautical
miles.

Count seconds please as same with original 1 flas every 6 seconds

Happy new year!
