Seeing the nice results on different wip's using "N" scale Outland Models buildings for CAV terrain, I picked up a few kits myself....and I actually finished one! This is the train railway modern garage / logistic center. I was shooting for a fairly new concrete precast type building. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I used mostly sponge stiling to achieve the look. Here it is with one of my best painted CAV for scale ( he is in the classic B&W T.V. Camo pattern ).
Now for the problems....I was able to get a nice sky / earth effect on the window panes, but it does't even show in the photos. Next one I will probably use brighter colors for the sky and earth reflection. The decal on the roof was also a big fail. I tried a method of rubbing the ink off of a printed page as shown on the Baremetal YouTube videos. That was a failure. I used an inkjet printer and I suspect he used a laser printer which would explain the problem I ran over. I was partially successful in hiding the problem by printing out a badge from the CAV kickstarter and varnishing it to the roof. The center of the badge was cut out and I stipled blue in the cutout. Lastly my clumsy hands broke several assembly pins while assembly the building with all the paint on it...so superglue came to the rescue!
Anyways C&C is welcome.
1) Will these 12 new paints (73400-73411) be available for normal retail sale at some point?
2) They claim to be HD paints, but they have white caps. What's up with that?
3) Is there any chance of being able to purchase black caps for Reaper paint bottles? I could find only white caps in the store.
Well here it is part the 66th Legion of the UTF ready for deployment
Stored away in a purpose build wooden box with steel paper bottom (all Cavs have magnetic sheet on bases)
Been fun sharing the progress of the army and has been a good incentive to keep it going.
If your interested heres the thread as I did each batch with some close ups of each type of Cav
