We all want something we just cannot source, happens to me all the time, which means we need to utilise what we have, no matter what I think it is worth trying to make it look good. I wanted a Scottie,at the time I could not source it, so some fine copper wire, some putty and sone paint later

These white metal models are. Morris Dancers, Googling them will bring up loads of bell ringing and musicians with dancers and stick bashing lol

I went two colour versions for the opponents, I wonder if the horses head was an early days mafia mob connection …grins
they often have handkerchiefs and I added some white paper squares

My aim is to always fool you, if only for a second, to this end I use the best models I can,and if I know certain models will help the scene but scream model I place them, to hide any elements scream out, hiding base stands, or placing far enough backwards or forwards against the focus point to blur them, so they can be mistaken, I turn faces to the side or away if really bad, these sheep benefit, as does the pilot

B11E868D-7A7E-4956-A16D-0F6513324C4D.jpeg

at this distance the base on top of the ballast is not too obvious

DBA3C6F5-CFDD-4394-8BC7-A116B2C521F7.jpeg

closer the painting detail is more focused showing all the paint details so screams model, the base at least is hidden in the ballast

a back view, with a red arrow,shame the base is screaming
71457AA5-CF10-471A-8D73-3E88DB8B2313.jpeg

I do not like photoshopping but I bit the bullet and did it here to see if it improved the photo, the model is still to close though and my paint work clearly shows up the lack of fine detail
D5E4243E-EE53-428D-A1EA-52DC1C39BBD3.jpeg

this one slightly further back, again photoshopped to remove the figure base, but now the detail is less obvious, the vehicles were placed to hide the fact the red arrow jet is on a base as well. I should fine tune the Red Cross on the ⛑ helmet, yes white on red not red on white :D

edit= I think the white note pad squares need lifting,ithink I have placed them on the knees not the thighs.When I have the paint to hand this will be an easy fix.

Jaz- you do such a great job of modeling and creating scenes that I am constantly amazed at your pictures.
Keep up the good work!

Rust, continued, rust all depends on the metal, and how it oxidises,

a Hornb statue, I felt it needed an upgrade

my upgrade

I colour most things not tied down :D
thud slightly off topic, not railway, but on topic rust
7174A199-02D5-473A-B83B-072F0753B0E1.jpeg

in general I like aging items and usually trial ideas on cheap items like vehicles so as to not mess up a costly item

once happy with how to colour I will then expand to other items

and then progressing to costlier items

I did not go whole hog here, but had tested the colours on the VE and the drums so was comfortable colouring the building.
