It’s been a while since I last posted but during that time I have been working on the diorama. I don’t have a lot to say about the construction other than I wanted to learn how to make a plastic structure look like worn wood. To do that I used chipping fluid over a coat of wood colored paint and then sprayed the surface with the final coat. Once dry I simply chipped away leaving a nice worn paint look. I gave the final effect a wash and dry-painted over areas where I felt there was too much wear.
Here are some pics:
I am now working detailing the building and surrounding area. I’ll post on that in a couple of weeks.
