Paint and finish

More of a picture posting this time, as I’ve described the details of painting these models before.

Basically after a quick rub down with sand paper, I give them an undercoat with cheap black acrylic paint, then a base coat of a black/brown mix, a lighter brush with brown, then brown/white mix and dry brush with white.  Just three tubes of cheap acrylic paint from the local store provides all the base colours. The windows then get repainted with a nicer black acrylic paint after.

With black/brown & brown/white mixes added

Extra white dry brushing

Windows repainted with black

The last stage still to do is to varnish them.
The doors will be fitted later as they can be slid into the door frames.
