POLA 1763: Village Well

I purchased this kit from Ultimate Trains Ltd. It is about 9″ long, 5.25″ wide and 5.5″ tall. Although small, it is expensive because it includes an electric pump.

This was one of the first kits I assembled and painted, and I still like the overall look.  I painted the following items with the water-based acrylic paint indicated:

Fountain basin: Folk Art, Green Forest 448
Fountain basin trim: Folk Art, Metallic Pure Gold 660

Fountain pump body: Folk Art, Green Forest 448
Fountain pump lever: Folk Art, Wrought Iron 925
Fountain pump trim: Folk Art, Napthol Crimson 435
Fountain pump trim, bands: Folk Art, Metallic Pure Gold 660

Fountain stone base, basic color, mix of:
Folk Art, Medium Gray 425
Folk Art, Dark Gray 426
Folk Art, Licorice 938

Fountain stone base, highlights, each of:
Folk Art, Rose Pink 632
Folk Art, Silver Anniversary 506
Folk Art, Sky Blue 465
Folk Art, Hauser Green Light 459

Fountain stone base, rust spots: Delta Creamcoat, Metallic Red Copper 02605

Fountain stone base, lime/mortar: Folk Art, Dove Gray 708

Fountain stone base, shadow/stain: Folk Art, Wrought Iron 925

Quite a while after finishing this kit, I painted the LGB 5038 Advertising Pillar using a mix of 3 parts FA Green Forest 448 to 1 part FA Dark Gray 426.  That mix came out really nice and if I ever decide to repaint this fountain, I will use that mix for the basin and pump.
