Progress Marches On

I am running out of Scylla character models to paint, am not quite ready to start work on my Alven Yard, and so have begun working on my long ignored terrain projects.  I have now painted and assembled three different kits; Market Stalls, 19th Century Walkways, and the Tratoria.  I have also begun assembling one of my warehouses now that I finished painting the parts.  My friend, Necron099, got great results from painting the various parts while they are still on the sprues BEFORE beginning any assembly.  This did make things a lot easier for numerous reasons, not the least of which being it forces one to really look at the instructions ahead of time.  I have also decided to use far less glue than in past as MicroArts really design their kits to fit together snuggly without adhesives.  I also decided that liquid Superglue is a better choice than the white Tacky Glue I had been using except for attaching windows as Superglue fogs clear plastic.

The first gallery is showing the steps of my painting the Tratoria. MicroArts has designed their plastic windows with a blue film friskit to protect them during painting and assembly.  The muntins (bars in the middle of the window) have a tiny, narrow piece of friskit that can be removed to make painting them easier.

The second gallery is of the Tratoria during assembly and complete.  The final images are close ups and set pieces of the three different kits together.
