The last lot of Schweppes boxes have been finished. These four were a little bit different to the earlier boxes as two were modelled as open boxes while the remaining two are intended to be placed on their side rather than standing upright. They have been painted in the same way as the earlier models, acrylic paint highlighted by drybrushing and finished with washes.
The square oil container was modelled from layers of 3mm thick plastic card with the cone top sanded to shape and a plastic rod screw top superglued in place before being painted red. The label on the front was cut from the Waitrose wine and spirit guide - a great resource for small labels and posters and free.
This final image shows all 14 Schweppes wooden boxes. My intention is to have them placed on the layout as clutter, stacked up against the wooden fence or along the brick wall. They have been great fun to build and to paint while listening to The World Cup football matches on the radio and enjoying the warm weather in the garden shed.
