K6 'phone box

7mm scale K6 telephone box

The finished K6 phone box looks rather nice.Dry brushing with a mix of Humbrol 153 and 147, the effect is of slightly faded paint - the state most boxes spent their lives in once the initial gloss had died down.

Telephone signs are printed on the instruction sheet and are therefore the wrong colour (black instead of maroon) but they look sharper than hand lettering would do. Perhaps a waterslide transfer would have been better?

Anyway, a nice little kit from Peco. Cheaper than etched brass and something pretty much any O gauge layout could find a home for.
