All creamy like.

Svanda's goods shed with a basic paint job of cream and brick red. As usual the cream is a bitch to get to cover and as with the station building, I mixed a sand and cream from Humbrol direct onto the plastic.
Now awaiting some wet and dry to 'felt' the roof. Am I the only one who calls this 'emery cloth'? My metalwork teacher always referred to wet and dry this way and it's stuck with me.

  1. Looking good, and yes, most of these lighter colours are a right sod to get to cover. The cafe/bar/tabac building for my pizza layout painted Humbrol cream, but oddly enough it covered pretty well......perhaps because the building is moulded brick plastic and has a fairly rough surface?
    Emery cloth/wet & dry....as I understand it, the difference is that emery cloth has a cloth backing (heavier duty....the sort of stuff used to do things to bits of rusty metal) whereas wet & dry is waterproof paper and more for abrading paintwork, etc.
