FSM Kit #155 – Detailing the Hopper Deck

 

Today in my continuing work on Fine Scale Miniatures kit #155 the Old Time Coal Dock, I’m adding detail castings to the deck of the main hopper structure.

I use 2 part epoxy for gluing the castings to the deck and walls.  Any excess that happens to ooze out from under them can be touched up with Floquil Flat Finish.

FSM Kit #155 – Details added to Coal Dock

Recently I’ve been working on a classic Fine Scale Miniatures kit #155, the Old Time Coal Dock.  I have most of the three structures completed for the dock and today added detail in the coal pit.

Today I detailed the pit area with castings, and I detailed the coal buckets with scale coal, which is just black colored ballast.
