I wanted more depth to the colours so I added a wash of Tamiya Green Black diluted with water.
The roof is a bit too green but I like the depth I’m now getting.
I followed it up with a Mig Neutral wash.
The ridge tiles have been bothering me. They are too even and a bit large. Hmmmm. I added dark lines and some colours with felt tip pens.
I wanted to add some mottling and lichen. I used Ash White Mig pigments with green, yellow and white Vallejo paints.
I splodged it on a section and it was too stark (top right) and then used the neutral wash to tone it back down a bit (middle right).
Here’s what it looks like after the was. I did the whole roof. I do like it. It suits the building colours better.
I’m letting it all dry so I moved it on to the “L”.
There’s another dormer on the side.
The one end has no supports so there is a brace for the walls and the roof section. I wish I had read on to this because I’ve already added my own braces. I did find the walls shifted when I had the problems with the loose joint. My “L” is not square. Oops. I added the roof brace before I realised how wonky it was…
There’s a gap to the right of the front roof.
I put some cardboard in the gap and had to move the dormer gap to the right a bit too
I added some bracing at the other end of the building too because the roof is removable and I want to keep the roof angle. I eventually trimmed the internal brace so you can get roof on and off when the building is glued in place
I put the standard 2″ x 12″ wood and trimmed the roof to match.
I added in the roof joist too. It acts as a mask of any gaps, phew. Finally, I put a magnet under one corner to hold it down.
