How to Color Brick or Stone Walls by Monster Model & Laser Works
Use Pantone felt marker pens to color the stones. Pantone markers are available in a very wide range of colors. Use a number of shades of grey from light grey to charcoal, or a number of shades of tan to brown, or a variety of shades of rust to red.
Dip a brush into 99% isopropyl alcohol and dab Bragdon's Weathering Powder to color the brick. These powders are available in various shdes of red. Spray when done with Testor's Dull Coat flat laquer. The laquer will accrue in the mortar lines turning milky light grey to look like mortar.
The nominal percentage on isoprophyl alcohol is the percent of actual alcohol. The rest is water. Using 70% or 91% alcohol with basswood sheeting will guarantee warping. The 99% is more money, but is well worth it, & a quart will do a lot of coloring.

In railroading nothing is more iconic, more to the heart of railroading than the steam locomotive.Among structures pertaining to railroading, that spirit is exemplifide by the roundhouse. The radial archetecture is like no other, and few other railroad structures approach their size. That said, nothing on your model railroad will be more of a focal point than your roundhouse and turntable. Here is where your crafsmanship and detail should be at its finest. This Andersen Model Kit provides the means to do just that. The rustic structure with its wood siding, 20 truss assemblies, and ribbed metal roofing captures that spirit of the time, when form was determined by function. The open front and interior lighting shows off your stable of locomotives, and the complete interior detail kit draws the viewer in, noticing the heavy beam supports & NBWs throughout. The adjacent machine shop is also open on the front to view the marvelous The optional Scale Structures Ltd. Lathe, Mill, Drill Press, Wheel Grinder & Overhead Belt Drive System as well as the two truss support assemblies overhead. The corrugated metal siding and roofing is spot on. The 150 HP Stationary Steam Engine, Boiler, Pump, Piping & Wheel Hoist complete the outside scene.
