A place where I ramble on about model railroad scenery methods, tips, techniques, and lots of other interesting model building topics. I may veer off the track now the then to talk about fishing and competition BBQ.

I finished this little Woodland Scenics station. It's close enough to the Fiddletown station to be used on my current project. This is a cast metal kit. All parts fit together with very little clean-up. I primed the parts with Krylon Camo Earth color and then brush-painted the trim with a medium gray. The roof was primed with Krylon Camo Brown and then dry brushed. After assembly the whole building got a thin wash of raw umber to tone down the brightness. Inside there's a figure in every window, blocks of painted wood for furniture, and a small LED to light it up. I found I needed to add a cardboard ceiling inside to prevent light from spilling out from under the roof eves. This was fun to build and took about 4 hours total.
