Lasercut House #2: to drybrush or not?

The second lasercut house is now complete and finished in double-quick time. Being such clean kits they are very easy to paint with none of the hiding of errors I usually have with scratch-built versions. Again, painting the beams black from every angle was the biggest pain and again I wished that I had sprayed them black before gluing them down. However, I'm really pleased how this one turned out, even though a quick dark grey drybrush over the beams would probably help; do you agree?

It was originally designed with a watermill attached to it's left side, but that made it too specific for me and preferred a more versatile townhouse. 






And together they both look pretty good, almost designed to go next to each other, but will of course look ace when I eventually get back into the attic and re-set my scenery set up once the proper building work in my proper house is completed.

  1. I love it. I concur, a slight grey drybrush would make it look perfect, but don't press yourself too hard, I really love the way it looks right now!

  5. If you were to drybrush I'd be inclined for a browny grey to keep the wooden richness. But if it was mine I'd just move on to the next project because it looks pretty good as is and I prefer having more stuff done well than a few things done spectacularly

  6. I feel like it's good as it is and am especially impressed by the work on the beige panels.
    Beautiful work!

  7. Very smart. My townhouses had a very very light drybrush of bleached bone all over them to finish and tie it together.
