Guard Shacks

Months ago I went to the West Coaster Toy Soldier Show and got one of these guard houses.

I got my first one there several years ago, shown here with a 60mm Marx recast figure.

I soaked them in Simple Green to remove the paint.

Then I sprayed them with $1 white spray paint from Wal-Mart.

It took a couple coats to get the coverage I wanted. 

 Better two thin coats than one thick one.

Then I painted the guard shacks with Rust-oleum.

Deep Forest Green is pretty close to Olive Drab.

They came out okay I think.
