The Stonecutters Guild

Painting is done for the Old Crow. Next up is detailing stuff. Coach lights, window boxes, signs, then gluing the base in place and adding curbs.

You can see the bottom floor already has it’s muddy brown wash, while the upper stories are still waiting.

Base painting still going on. I forgot to shoot a step by step, but it’s a bunch of very similar sand tones. Will be drybrushed and washed down the road.

Workbench Wednesday!

The roof is finished on the Old Crow. Next up windows, then paint.

Late night wip.

I’ve gotten one half of the roof done on The Old Crow!

I got this punch from the scrapbooking world. It was $50 at Hobby Lobby, I got it for like $20 on Amazon.

It’s kind of a pain to use with plastic card, but it works. I took the for sale signs and sanded a grain into it with 50 grit sandpaper, to give a wood grain feel.

Hopefully this will make the roofing tiles go quicker. I needed a deeper cut than pinking sheers could give me, and this punch fits the bill.

Gonna take a break from carving walls and put the roof on the Old Crow instead.

Finished up framing the last building for Gripenhem. Up next I’ll be revisiting the ring wall, then I’ll start finishing the buildings up.

I got a little bit of work done in all of the post Oshkosh craziness yesterday. I put the roof bases on a couple of buildings. The Owl Corner has a weird, twisting roof. It’ll be interesting!

Fast forward to the completed airship (wip pics were lost in a hard drive crash.) A lot of time went into rigging, turnbuckles, and paint. The shields line rails, and the crew is in place.

I used these cheap paint brushes to make the masts for the sails. They are mounted on either side of the hull, and are designed to swivel to allow for water landings. The masts are detailed with brass rings along the length of the mast.

Bonus, a whole mess of shields to paint.
