OMG! Blue Moon SF#1 complete!

Hey, hey! Did a quick salt weathering on the antennae. Sprayed a light layer of "dust" over the entire building with a concentration around the bottom. The dust is a 50/50 mix of Delta Ceramcoat Sandstone and Spice Tan. I recently picked up a cheapo airbrush from Harbor freight and found this to be a great way to get a "simple" coat like a dust layer down fast. I'll knock out a dedicated article to the Harbor Freight brush later this week.

Very happy with how the scratch antennae came out, other than the dish is a wee bit too large.

Sooo glad this building is finally done! I got to try a lot of new techniques for me and had a great time in the process of learning. Hopefully this will translate into the next building going faster. Yeah, and I'll finish everything in the lead pile too!

Click the Blue Moon Manufacturing under Labels to the right to catch the whole saga.
