Really atmospheric buildings. When is the Colony 87 Kickstarter happening? I need to get my funds in order!

AKA Vallejo black splodge. Proper name ‘Earth based acrylics’. Premixed gunk that you just paint on. Use it for tarmac etc. Love the texture of it :)

Thanking you  :)

Brilliant stuff.

Do you have a good source for the textured plastic sheets you've used for cladding? Thanks.

This is truly great work. I was also going to ask about the cladding-its very effective. Probably the best sci fi buildings that I have seen and I am looking forward to seeing them painted.

Looks like Plastruct stuff.  Easily ordered online, although any good model railroad shop will have a selection and can generally get any specific type you need.

Nicely done Karl. Looking forward to seeing them painted & the Kickstarter later in the year.  8)

I've used EMA reliably in the past:

Be warned; looking around the site can be expensive, acquiring all the shiney bits you didn't realise you needed.  :D

I have used Slaters Plastikard forever. Some of the pieces here are years old :)

Kind of true for the entire internet, isn't it?  :)
