Hey Everyone,

Since the guys at Zen Terrain have been so kind to send me a prototype of there new Police Station to paint, I thought this would be a good chance to document the process I go through when painting something of this level of complexity.

So the first step is to dry fit everything to see how the fit is and get an idea of what can be assembled properly into sub assemblies before painting.

So this is how it looks after a dry fit. I haven’t constructed the spotlights as they are quite difficult to hold together without glue. As always the fit from Zen is superb and instructions are very easy to follow and very well thought out.

I will say that this is the most complex building they have done to date, and there are lots of very small parts that could be quite fragile and easily lost so make sure you are very careful when taking the pieces out of the bags so you don’t damage or lose the smaller parts.

It would also be a good idea to separate the parts that have multiples to make it easier to find them when constructing.

Again another very easy product to recommend – although I don’t know the final cost of the model, I am sure it will be incredibly good value as always!

Join me over the coming weeks as I take you through the build/paint

Sorry for the delay guys, between work commitments taking me away from my painting desk for 2 weeks, my compressor dying and being ill it’s been a bit quiet on the painting front.

But not anymore

A little sneak peak of what is on my desk. It’s very nearly finished, just some touching up and graffiti to do.

I’ll post up some proper pictures as soon as I can work out how to photograph something that big!
