Pretty big update for my layout, first bit of real scenery has been started.

From blank slate to plaster cloth covered hillside







Very happy with the results of my first time ever using this stuff.
1 a 15cm by 3m roll from Hobbycraft.

Anyway back to my layout, once its dry I'll be painting it and adding the tunnel portals and the small bits which are missing between where the portals will be as this is a fairly tall hillside relative to where the tunnels are.

Plus i'm going to have a pub on the edge of the road at the top

Not to put a damper on your parade Oncominstorm but is that tunnel removable or can you get access to the track underneath it for when the inevitable happens and a loco stalls, a carriage or wagon derails?

No damper, I just need to tell everyone that there is a cutout on the left of the layout, just a poor angle on my photo, it is hard to see with it being right up against the cabinet so no light is getting in.

Looking good. When you put a coat of paint on the plaster it will make it come to life even before any scatter or static grass. Gave me a real boost when I did my hills
Not sure its supposed to do that
