What panel material are you using for baseboard as it looks like wood?

Re: Jynn: a 7 1/4" gauge wren

Re: Jynn: a 7 1/4" gauge wren

Re: Jynn: a 7 1/4" gauge wren

I would like a complete run through with how you went about preparing and painting her.

I am done using Halfords rattle cans and want to move on using to brushes and durable paints that can withstand real world use.

Brands, where you purchased items from - more details the better please!

P.S.
My youtube videos don't seem to resize in the thread - am I missing something?

Re: The Gables Garden Railway (7 1/4")

I would be interested in a new thread regarding your Wren build even if you did not build it yourself. Particularly interested in how you went about painting her as that is the stage I am at with my Sweet Pea and I hate nothing more than spending hours preparing and painting parts to then have them ...
