Hi Ian,
The brick walls are painted with a Krylon #1317 Ruddy Brown Primer spray bomb. The green is Floquil Coach Green. The mortar mix, which is included with Schomberg kits, is a mix of Rottenstone powder and Baking Soda. This is rubbed into the mortar lines, the excess brushed off and any touch up done to missed spots. The "mortar" is fixed in place once you're happy with the look with a spray of Krylon #1311 Matte Clear.
The design is based loosely on the Kennebec Central two-stall frame engine house in Maine, modified to a three-stall brick structure.

Cheers,
Peter

I like the choice of paint colours on the round house. And the mortar lines are very realistic.
