Very nice

Thanks for posting.



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

QUOTE It is the lighthouse to find the course for the vessels navigating from Marmara Sea to entrance of Istanbul Port and Istanbul Strait.
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

Count seconds please as same with original 1 flas every 6 seconds
here is the video link of Lighthouse

Happy new year!
