Building and Weathering the Cornerstone HO Union Crane and Shovel

Building and Weathering the Cornerstone HO Union Crane and Shovel Book Review

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review September 2017 Title Building and Weathering the Cornerstone HO Union Crane and Shovel
Author Mike Ashey Publisher Mike Ashey Publishing
Published 2017 ISBN -
Format 14 pages, three-ring MSRP (USD) $4.95

Planning on using your modeling skills to build or expand your model railroad layout? Planning on a building background kit (like the MiniArt kits) for a diorama or vignette? Master modeler Mike Ashey provides some useful tips to transform the Cornerstone HO scale 'Union Crane and Shovel' building kit into a realistic model.

The techniques illustrated in this title provide tips on the effective use of primers, brick and mortar applications, shading and weathering, application of large decals as well as adding small decals to add fidelity, and application of a clear coat to blend it all together.

If you're planning to update or expand your railroad empire or build similar kits as backgrounds, the tips and techniques presented here are simple and effective, yet provide excellent results.

One other advantage to this series is that you can order what you need, when you need them, or collection them all for future projects.

My sincere thanks to Mike Ashey Publishing for this review copy!
