Yes it's excellent well done, I also have one.....you might need to weather it a little especially the roof!!!

Well built, they are a great bit of kit the old Superquick range, nice work.

I opted not to put the chimmney pot on the little office, since it was a little harder to make :oops: how would i got about weathering card? it would seem a little bit different than weathering plastics :?

thanks all :D

I'll probably try to use pastel weathering (crush it up and dry brush it on)

when I get into foliage, I'll be adding some ivy or a large bush to the left side wall of the shed, since I have to cover up a glue mark :oops: :lol:

now off to more baseboards!

Hi Jeremy

Excellent job on the shed. As for the weathering, it might be an idea if you have any scrap pieces left over to practice on them first :) I'm not sure myself what you should use (I always found my card kits in the past seemed to weather themselves in time anyway, lol!) I should certainly suspect that somethig like pastes should do the trick, though I'd try a few things out 'cos you might just find something better

Cheers fella

Thanks Tim, as always very inspiring and helpful :D
I've still got the "side walks" left over from the shed, i shall attempt to weather them :lol:

I'm going home tonight but have to work... so no progress again :cry: but tomorrow and monday should be productive, hopefully one more board done :D

cheers
