Weathering Sankei Buildings
tossedman posted a topic in Scenery Techniques & Inspirational LayoutsHas anyone attempted weathering their Sankei paper buildings? Or, stumbled across any videos or sites that show how it's been done? I've just spent a bunch of time weathering a scratch built engine shed and would hate to plunk some brand new looking Sankei buildings beside it. Wood and plastic I can figure out but I've never attempted weathering card stock. Cheers eh, Todd
Minor details but important, questions
kevsmiththai posted a topic in Scenery Techniques & Inspirational LayoutsWith my limited knowledge of Japan can anybody help me with some random questions? I'm really getting stuck into the outskirts of Hakuho on my new Z layout ready for a show in March. As a JNR Steam era layout I'm looking at the 1960s era. As you enter the outskirts of a town or village in Japan is there a roadside nameboard and if so what would it look like? I've got the station nameboard sussed The Sankei 'Sendai' bath house has a chimney at the rear. Would it have been coal or wood firing for the heating? I want to scratchbuild a fuel store out the back. As the U.S Army occupied Japan after WW2 did any of the Army trucks, like the GMC 6x6s, end up in civilan use ? ( I have a load of Z-panzer ones I can repaint) Cheers Kev
Sankei Miniatuart kit: Diorama MP03-38 Shrine
JanW posted a topic in StructuresI am very impressed with the quality and detail of this Sankei Miniatuart shrine. Everything fits perfectly and it makes a beautiful diorama. In fact, the detail is better than plastic Tomytec kits although a lot more work to put together! Now I am looking for further models from Sankei. Do they make a pagode?
