As I want the buildings on Wheeldon to sit in the landscape and I want the trackwork filled in up to the rail top level. So I've started digging up the old groundcover where its going to be concrete, I have also started raising the ground level up by gluing thick card down between the tracks. I will post up some photos later of where I am at. Not going mad with it, I still have to build another baseboard for the new fiddle yard and lay some more track before committing to the scenics.   

Cheer's, Pete.

Thanks Ron for the offer :thumbsup:, fortunately I'm ok, I have to do a bit then wait for the glue to dry, thankfully the weather is helping, and I am getting somewhere. 
Here are a few photos of what I am doing.
First, clearing the old ballast and ground cover.



Next I glued some thick, double thickness, card down.



Then some 2mm mountboard card, it was a bit warped, so I had to use all the heavy stuff I could lay my hands on to weigh it down, it seems to have worked.



clearances seem fine too.



I have checked the building st ill fits and all is good, I'm just fitting the door switch in place then I can start on the cladding.
Cheer's for now Pete.

Thank you chaps :thumbsup:.

Kim, as the big shed sits over it, I'm just going to paint it as a concrete base as per Garys Industry Lane, the effect Gary has with his is spot on. The yard outside I'm going to do with model clay, Das, as the surface underneath is a bit bumpy, and I can't be :bleep6:ed to scrape it all off, I bought a book from a company called Petite Properties and in there the author described how to lay it smooth by rolling it out first, anyway we will see ;).

Cheer's, Pete.

Made a start on cladding the new building, I started by sticking the corrugated card on with pva which went fine until I stared on the end wall when the water in the pva caused the card to delaminate. So, a trip into town and I got some spray photo mount, not cheap but it has done the job. Still got some to do but I have had to knock off as my right foot has decided to start playing up :x:.
Anyway have a look at the delightful finish so far.
Warning, you may need to wear sun glasses.







Lovely eh?

I will have another go once my foot stops throbbing!

Cheer's, Pete.
