This thread is the second part on “The Signal Tower” build.

Here I will post all the commercial kits of houses, huts, stations and others that needs to be glued and painted ;) The "under construction" thread of all the buildings!!

This will be my first one.

Someone remember it? Maybe “The Secret Trip”? I suppose that will bring me luck, I hope ;)

Hi all.

Yesterday I start the signal tower kit.

I must say, these little kits from Faller are simply great! I primed all the pieces, without worry to take out of the sprues. I use different primer colours, and once dry, I apply just an oil wash. One hour after, I remove the excess of paint with a little sponge. The result is perfect!!

Now will wait for build and glue all the pieces. The last step, a touch of dry brush maybe....

The first house of the layout!! ;)

Thanks for looking.

On the photo, you can see the difference between with and without an oil wah (without the sponge yet)

This is going to be a very outstanding build Polux when completed, also one that you can really play with.
