At the moment, my modelling time is focussed on making doors for the factory on Thomas and Sons. First, these sliding doors.
It was a straightforward job. The doors are laser cut card from LCut, painted in blue, dry brushed with grey and brown, and given a wash of diluted black. The wash fills the laser cut lines and helps to accentuate the planking.
The metal cover over the sliding mechanism was made from H section styrene, cut down to an L section (because I didn’t have any L section of the right size). Painted blue, dry brushed with grey and rust, and given the usual wash of diluted black. This time the wash is to add a later of ‘dirt’.
Next, some arch shaped, hinged doors….
