Hi Blair, Awesome work on this... I'm in the middle of making preparations to do my own diorama and would like to know how you went about weathering the bricks... they look absolutely real and would love to know your technique.

Here are some tests that I've tried. I too used a piece of foam board with the paper torn off of one side. I then measured and carved the lines for the bricks and painted them. I used acrylic paint.

I was thinking the pattern on the far left but I'm still undecided. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

That looks like a lot of work, but well worth the effort.

I keep promising myself I'll build one of these too... maybe someday.

Get the Earth Tones set. That's what I use for a lot of my weathering and rusting. I've had the same set something like 10 years or more, so the investment goes a long way.
