I did not think I knew his work...however after looking up his name I did know some of it, funny I can see what you mean, a bit sparce, somewhat ambiguous (sorta :wink: ) and the colours are similar.

Uh,,,she, I won`t say anything.

I bought a small (2 gallon) compressor for $40 on sale at the local Canadian Tire (not just tires :wink: ) and cranked up the pressure...WOW. My airbrush works and it works great. Scared the ... out of the family when it went off in the next room though :lol: So a compressor and a laugh all for $40.

What was the upper opening for? looks like a bread oven. Cool little beast though, lots of charm.

It does seem a bit brite but perhaps a pic of the entire layout with the grass as we may be getting a false impression of it as it takes up much of the shot. Thanks for the rust tutorial, I would never have thought turmeric, any animals in your household? :roll:

The roof looks fantastic and I`m sure the rest will look just as good as you get the rest of the salt picked off. Some powders and or powder paint may also help to soften and age it as you go, but I`m sure you have it all planned out as the model looks great. I really must dig out my airbrush and pr...

Very nice, the additions really give it a different look, all your own, the welds look just like they should, a quick fix kind of weld job a tool like that little trammer would get by someone who is a general repair guy and not some specialty welder! Again beautiful additions.
