Its the photographs that are the issue.The colour is actually alight Turquoise.They were taken in the house,not my workshop.
I'd thought of a sand/gold colour however I chose turquoise to fit with the theme of the  billboard.This will look a little better once the large areas of grey primer are painted,and the detailing to which the 'sun' is a background.
The figures and flag are not showing up very well in the house either.As I add a little more dirt and background weathering.Its becoming less of an issue.

Oh if you're painting figures or a scene on top of it, then yes, that will also help differentiate it.

Here's a slightly clearer picture of the thing so far. There's still a layer of posters to add. But I think the colours flow well enough for this stage.Still a little unsure on the turquoise. The posters will be the point at which I know wether I've dropped the ball or not. However there's still a lot of detailing to do before I paint the posters to go over the top of this layer.
The reality is the carriage is to short to do this topic justice so it's going to be more of a make do and mend styling,rather than a direct copy.

Yes, I like that although you're going to have to clean those kitchen wall tiles in the background  ;)

Thats superglue stains, they are made from card too James  ;)

I agree with your assessment that it is a little short for the theme, but other than that it looks fun Mark. I'm not put off by the turquoise, it looks rather white in the photos anyway.

Cheers
Matt

It has been suggested that I occasionally use something other than card!
But then I'd have to spend money,and I'm not brave enough to tell my wife I've spent my pocket money lol

Joking aside The first poster is done and has reduced the Japanese feel. Again I'm not out to paint an exact copy of anything ,only a suggestion of the original image.(it's only a card model and nothing but posh scenery,not a commission)I think ,had I painted it a sandy yellow ,the poster would be lost somewhat.

( the tiles are foam card ,stippled with neat PVA,and sprayed grey. Then a couple of washes with the dirty paintbrush water. It's an old gaming tile/board I used for a lotr game. It's slightly better than the view from the window it's covering :D)

I was in the process of putting everything away when I put the carriage next to the engine and realised the composition was way off. I planned  on billboards towards the front which ended up making the carriage section look cramped so I've returned to the original 'circus wagon/ propaganda train' set up which sits far better with the height of the engine,and allows more room for figures.
