I was prowling around looking for a Japanese loading dock for my shipping area and could not find one. Then, I looked for source images of Japanese loading docks and...I'm not sure they exist! hehehe
However, I wanted one, so I just built it out of styrene! I believe it worked out well.
I snapped some iPhone photos of the build. I think I'm getting better with my styrene builds. It's encouraging. I'm going to make another bridge now that I have a bit more patience, skill, and my magnification headset with lights! SO MUCH BETTER working with it, especially on the smaller details.
Here are the basic build shots.
After I got the main section built, I gave it a spray. Sadly, with just a rattle can - I still don't have an airbrush. The grey with a chalk finish went on like a dream, however when I tried to layer in a black, it sputtered and messed the whole thing up.
But...the milk was spilled already, so I just wiped it to blend it, then hit it with another coat of grey and it worked like a charm for some grime.

It's really working well in place, too.
