Looks really impressive.
Excellent work there
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Looking nice, you may want to put some filling behind your sloped retaining walls at the tunnel entrances but I expect its a work in progress. I like the White Horse" very Wiltshire.

Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

Yes indeed Jerry, it is a work in progress. I haven't done any work under the hill yet (as you can tell by the straight lines) I can't make up my mind what to put there. It could be the right place to put my allotments though they won't get a lot of sunlight between the hill and the road bridge.  :doh:

Nice blending of backscene and foreground :thumbsup:
You might want to run some paint/ink down the white lines created on the corners of your card buildings :hmmm:

 :thankyousign:

I have painted the white lines on the village houses (not in the pictures as they have not been fixed in position yet) and yes they do look so much better. I have made it a bit more difficult with the farm and cafe as they are fixed now so I will have to lean across and probably put some sort of temporary prop to keep my shaking hand still.  ;D

It's looking nice, well done.
If it's not a Diesel Hydraulic then it's not a real locomotive.

I, and no doubt many others, have the same affliction so you are not alone :no:

If you can get some watercolour pencils, that'lll make the task easier. Available from a good art shop.
