Behold the material of the future....fibro.

The washhouse got a make over on the 'Victorian Cottage', as in true post war suburban style, it received a clad of fibro cement, it may not rot, warp or burn but it takes paint rather badly and tends to look mouldy.

All it needs now is a smashed panel courtesy
 of a stray cover drive playing backyard cricket.
No real secret, office paper glued directly to the model,
strips of paper for battens, given a few heavily diluted washes
 of acrylic black paint to give it that mouldy fibro look.
Now to add the external plumbing and the weathered corrugated iron roof.
from the old inner suburbs next to the wires.
