Yep more scenic work. Lower half of Erpeler Ley flocked. Still needs top coat of glue and blending in to the rocks.

One can only hope that one's flocking even comes close to looking that good on one's own layout!  :-[

The layout is provisional booked for Warley 2016. Target is to have it test running by summer of that year.

A bit more work on the Erpeler Ley anti-aircraft battery. Slow progress, but getting there.

Seen close up, those cliffs are superb. I'm sure that the anti-aircraft batteries will be excellent, too, when completed and painted.

I know camera angles can be very deceptive, Al, but just how tall are those cliffs from base to plateau please?

The plateau is 0.5 metres above track bed, or 0.65 above the river. To be true to scale, it should be 0.9Metres, so a little short...
