    Meanwhile back on smugglers retreat I’ve been adding some pink flowering bushes from MBR,
    I’ve relegated the woodlands scenic tree to the rear of the layout as the MBR are far superior, ( roughly the same cost for a comparable size tree ) I will order another tree from MBR to fill it’s ori spot.

    As always Steve beautiful modelling the small shrubs and bushes really do make the scene come alive as dose all the colour variations etc of the track weathering.

    Looked up the MBR models (link below for anyone else wondering) https://mbrmodel.eu/en/ they do have some nice scenic materials
    I will have to see what their postage to the land down under is to see of its worth while ordering a bunch of stuff.

    The postage from Poland to the UK was very reasonable, it’s definitely worth asking about costs to Aus, the staff are very helpful that I dealt with. Really good quality products, I’ll certainly be ordering more,
    In fact there will be another 12 on this section.

    Thanks for the MBR link Steve... I'll certainly be looking to order some trees soon. Dawlish is coming on a treat now, its like a piece of art being sculpted from pictures from the past, :tophat::thumbs:

    Very nice indeed Steve, its installing lineside furniture like that which sets the project apart onto a completely higher level of authenticity, don't get me wrong I'm not pulling other good layouts down but Dawlish has the "wow" factor. This is a layout scene I'd happily pay admission to go and see.:tophat::tophat::tophat:

    Nice Steve. If I knew how signals worked I'd be able to heap better praise but I'm clueless. One thing I will say is that as far as signal furniture goes ...... they look amazing.

    Cheers
