Indeed!! I can't wait to see it in RTM green !!! ;-)
I thought that you may have sprayed it with one of those Stone Effect Sprays. Unfortunately Pictures of Steam Tram Roofs are likely to be as rare as Hen’s Teeth thus we have to go in instinct. My instinct tells me that the Roof is likely to be Sheet Steel Painted Black and Smoke Weathered with age and use. Thus a ripply effect would be somewhat unlikely. I wonder if you can get somehow a look at some of the Steam Trams Preserved in your neck of the Woods and perhaps get a Picture or two to be certain? That probably will not help with what you have done, nice as it looks.Waddayathink about the roof... It looks very coarse, in reality it is much less (must be the camera faking massive stones).
I read everywhere people do paint over this. But personally I do like the fine sand structure (it is filtered 'bird' sand, to be used in bird cages).
