I used  acrylics Gary, there is a mix on the layout with some enamels.
Looking at some wood today to sort a backdrop and plan some buildings.
I know I need point motors and some decoders but cash is in short supply at the moment due to SWMBO'd buying a load of stuff for the house!!


CheersRon

On my Lazarus track I sprayed it with Railmatch track and sleeper grime, its all the same colour but I will paint the rail sides with their rust enamel paint, hopefully it will look as good as yours Ron :thumbsup:.

Cheers Pete.

Been to the DIY store for some 6mm MDF for the back scene, next job!!

Looking good Ron. :thumbs: I'd guessing that the back scene is at least 250mm high (10") ?? 

Here is a link to the grain silos (elevator) that I built :

Nice and bright Ron. It'll also bring the layout together a bit more as well. A nice big expanse of colour. Coming along nicely. :thumbs:
