Finishing up Sanders Flag Stop

The finished flag stop is ready to be added to a Gatorfoam base. I plan to take this display to the National Narrow Gauge Convention in Maine this fall...if you are there check it out.
The Sanders flag stop is now finished. The walls first got a coating of Hunterline weathering mix followed by washes of Floquil coach green on the bottom and a mix of Floquil SP lettering gray, reefer white and dirty thinner on the upper walls. I do not have any Floquil reefer gray as my paint stock dwindles. The paints are put on more as a wash so the Hunterline stain shows through. The windows and door got a full coat of coach green.

The sign is 5mm Letra Set dry transfer lettering applied to a CN blue stock folder. I photocopied it reducing it down to 60%. Bragdon powders will be applied shortly to the walls to finish it off...George Dutka

The platform and roofing is Hunterline weathering mix followed by a wash of Floquil Grime, thinned. Some Bragdon powder is also applied once dry.

One can see through the paint colours making it look old. The weathering powder is yet to be added.

My Sanders sign is made from dry transfer lettering reduced on a photocopier.
