A few new wagons to join the goods train and a start of weathering on each.
Sand down on board 2 and painted plus my woodland! The ones on the far left and right have had Heki foliage added today
Productive second day on board 2, static grass layers built up with quick drying clear varnish. Run out again now !! First trees in place with many many more to go.
Wagon weathering continues with the HUO hopper, coal dust next
More scenics on the second board, plus whilst the sun is shining it would be rude not to pose some stock !
A little more weathering on the HUO
More scenics arrived from GModelscenics, I particularly like there forest bushes, I’ll be getting some more of them. Heki ground foliage and some more dead fall, the areas in between will be filled with more bushes. Another large tree made up and screwed in place
Weathering a few more wagons and two more trees underway
Steve your foliage and tree modelling is exceptional. The different shades and courses of Bush blend in nicely inbetween the trees.
The weathering on your wagons is nicely done.
Back on with the trees today, I’ve added more sea foam and cut and shaped them a bit more and on with more foliage which I promptly ran out of again! I've wanted to do an Ivey covered dead tree and this is the result
I'm really liking your rolling stock fleet... nicely weathered too. The background nature is coming along a treat as well. Following your work as ever.
First pair of Dapol MK1’s behind a castle and paired with the hattons Gresley. I’ve ordered a diagram H57 diner from Haywood to feed the hungry passengers
MBR trees have arrived and boy they don’t disappoint
Adding some more thick bushes baby trees and the Great Westerns favourite Tree the Scott’s pine on to the scenic boards this evening.
Track work going down on the second board, The new C&L track is a marked improvement on the last box I had, mouldings seem a lot crisper
Newer track is moulded in brown plastic whereas the old is black
Looks very similar to 'Marcway' track......bet it's dearer though!
Is it raining where you are, looks a bit damp?!
This is a close-up of 'Marcway' track, £60 for 10 x 1 yard lengths (+ P&P if you're not near Sheffield!)
Liking the trackwork Steve and I'm impressed with the new C&L mouldings... tell me I wanted to order some of these new track items from him for my own Leek Station layout but his website said he wasn't working from the office due to some structural issues on ventilation. I presume he is back up and running again.
