This is the castle partially assembled after the first coat, but before I started sponge painting.
I used a rough sanding sponge to remove the excess sand around the grout edges.
On a non-mini related time during our weekend, we decided to see the sunrise early Sunday morning on Signal Hilł. The first trans-Atlantic wireless signal was sent from Signal Hilł in 1901. We got to see some of the makeshift art built on the hill.
The view of the city at this time of day is stunning.
Unfortunately even though the city was clear in view, the sun must have been covered in the fog and clouds off the coast. This was all we got to see of the rising sun, it's glow on the water.
