Have been spending Christmas at my in-laws in the Adelaide Hills at Nairne. Have enjoyed traveling around and seeing the lovely old buildings, railway formations and buildings, farm settings, all with plenty of rust, peeling paint and variation of colouring - great for modeling inspiration - character, form and coloring. There is such a wealth of heritage in the Adelaide hills and surrounds. Time is frozen. The variation in rust colours and the examples of peeling paint are in abundance. For reference photos check out my collection which will grow as I add more at:
