Hi Guys  :)

Thank you for your comments re the straw in the cart..... I spluttered my coffee a bit when I read yours Mick  ;D

I think you are right Joe. It will darken a bit, and as Alexander says, it should not be too dirty. I may just make it a bit more "golden yellow" but not too much.

I am just getting some photos together for the "How to" on populating cars which I will post later on.

Edit ...... Here is the link to the tutorial for adding drivers to Oxford Diecast vehicles

All best wishes
Kevin

 :hellosign:

Hope you all had a good weekend.

In an effort to do anything rather than fill the pond, I have been practicing photographing, concentrating on the yard area, as I like trains coming out of tunnels  :D

This was the set up, cheating a bit to make the layout look bigger  :-[ but hey ho !!



You may notice as well, that the figures move around a bit, as do the sheep and the tree in the meadow, so the photos are better composed. They also show off my huge fleet of locos  ::)  ::)  ::)



















I do apologise if some of the photos are a bit similar to ones you may have seen before, but I hope you like them  :D

Next step is moving over to the other side .....



The grass area will be a stable / riding school, and when that is done, and the level crossing finished, I can photograph the station.

All best wishes
Kevin

Fabulous.......I think the figures are particularly good.... not just any old figures but people who look like they belong there.
If it looks right, it probably is right.

Wot they all said!

And there's nothing wrong with putting a 'fake' bit of landscape in the front... quite legitimate photographic technique. Much better than photoshopping smoke onto the locos, for some reason I find that annoying. :beers:
