Little Police BoxI was asked to paint one of my 1:100 scale Police Boxes for a TT Gauge fan. First off I painted the box with a dark blue which only needed one coat as the resin itself was blue already! I then covered it with a dark wash and dry brushed it with a lighter blue. I thought the little windows at the top would be an absolute pain to fill in, but if you take some watered down white paint on a thin brush and poke it into the windows, it fills them up lovely without getting onto the tricky window frame too much. As the paint is a little watery, you may have to give the windows a couple of coats.
Deciding on the colour of the long light on all four sides was a little tricky. Most Police Boxes I looked at online had the long strips as black with white writing, but as the 1:100 scale, four black bars looked odd and it was far too small to paint the words on! But I found that white worked a lot better. I think the black would work if I had some custom decals with the famous POLICE PUBLIC CALL BOX sign on the top and on the front door. If you want to make your own custom decals for a Police Box, there is a full set of Police Box signage on the Lego Site Brickshelf right here.
Then to finish it's just detailing with white on the lamp, grey for the base and some silver on the lock and door handles.
