Following on from the 'Jungle House W.I.P.' I am delighted to present the finished abode as my entry in Dave Stone's, 'Summer of Scenery Challenge'. This is a 'Sarissa Precision' kit and having completed the build in the previous post all that was left to do was to paint and detail it.
I tried to keep this as straightforward as I could and dry brushed colour on to the woodwork in a succession of lighter tones; for the record Vallejo U.S. Olive Drab, Khaki and Stone Grey. The vines were picked out in a variety of green and then had some fine turf sprinkled along them.
I was a little nervous about dry brushing the delicate feathers and so started by making a series of passes with the airbrush and then picked out the batons and ropes followed by more fine turf and leaf litter to try and convey the feeling that it had been there for some time.
Some subtle wash colour under the eaves, a few leafy tufts and more leaf litter and we were there, completed! Sarissa really do make some lovely little kits and because of their study construction are fun to enhance and personalise.
A big thank you to Dave for giving me the inspiration to get some terrain done this summer, perhaps not what I had originally envisaged but nonetheless a rather fun diversion and a couple of new tricks learnt along the way. All that was left to do was to get some of the other toys out for a quick photo-shoot!
