I remodeled this miniart kit into a French Building With a typical french zinc roof and 30's era faded advertising.



No plaster or wood used al plastic.

So what's not on the box cover in scratch built by me.

Great work. You have completely changed it's character.

I also have several repurposed Minitart buildings. Perhaps we should have a thread where the box art and final build can be compared.

Acrylic paint Ammo of mig.
With masking and the hairspray chipping method ,chipping every color separately.
And using the Hairdryer to speed up the progress.

Took me no more than one hour to do the faded Advertising, was my first time......... so it only can get better if i would take my time :whistle:

Fantastic, I like the block work you've added to the corners and bottom of the walls, it changes the period of the building as does the roof modifications.
Very nice indeed.
