Painted individual bricks by adding only yellow,red and black to the base color ,all will be toned down after weathering.
the light grey is the base color for the concete road and granit steps..

Came to the conclusion .....that this is not the type of quay i want.
(And it does not look WW2 Rumanian enough to me to me )
I will make another one.
Using this one for testing my non existing harbour weather / paint techniques.

First airbrushed layers of greens and some black.

For a 1/35 Schnellboot it would be perfect ,
These type of brick quay's are common in North Western Europe and German Baltic ports..

The sea and the painting is TOP! ......wish i could do a sea like that.
But a u boat would not sit so low in the water...... and the sea is to rough for the crew standing around without being strapped into a safety harness

Last section added and primed,
Thinking off also adding a AA position with an Italian FLAK used by the Germans .

Next.... Slabs of concrete on the topside/road
