While most of my modelling efforts of late are focused on building rolling stock for my future GT layout, work on the Algonquin continues. I've decided to add a fence to the yard scene in the town of Whitney. I want it to frame an area where the railroad stores things like ties, tie plates, rail etc. next to the MoW shed.
At first I considered buying strip wood and making it myself, but after comparing the cost of the strip wood, to the cost of a Blair Line laser cut fence kit I quickly bought the kit. The strip wood, would've cost about a third more and I'd have to cut it all myself on the chopper.
I assembled the fencing in sections, with the posts spaced so they would be evenly spaced after installation on the layout. I stained them with a Hunterline Red stain. I wasn't pleased with the look, so I tried the kits instructions instead. The kit says to prime with grey (I used a rattle can) and then brush paint the colour of your choice. I think they came out great. I dry brushed the top coat to give a weathered look.
Next up is to install the fence and take a few photos.
