I'll hasten to add that's not where I sourced mine which, as I think I knackered it, will source another one. Hell, the micro SD cost more than the camera.

Ah, so you have come over to the Video-side young Nobby-wan!   :P

I had great fun trying to get it to work - only takes a 32GB card - AND you have to put it in the right way round - AND you have to set a text file for the date (which I've now deleted). Then the 'controls' are ridiculously fiddley.

Cheers  :beers:

Made some progress on flocking the hills, start to tackle all the barren hillsides on the layout!






One of the new fangled car flats makes an appearance in Perthshire

Very good to see more scenic progress, Andrew, plus the same Carflat as I have.

Bit more ballasting done, blending in the redundant siding and the mainline



..... and more flocking :) 



Quite satisfying when you hoover up the surplus ..... or maybe that is just me!

Doesn't a touch of scenery make a difference?

Keeps the mojo going, and I really like the curved points.  :thumbsup:

To try and clear the van of EPS, I thought I would try and finish off the areas where I still need it, this is one at Muthil and I have started to close over the area behind the train sheds/Fiddle Yard 1 - will need to fit the point motors in the fiddle yard before I go much further though as I will need a bit of access from this side for some of them that are up near the throat.

The other area is up where I had planned Loch Osc, the dam, the viaduct etc. ... I am growing slowly terrified of doing that bit as I have lost faith in how it will come together!



More flocking around on the hills outside Auchterarder, put a layer of 2mm static grass on top of the first base coat of flock



Also wanted to add a different feature, so thought I would have a bit of scree coming down from what will be the oil rig drilling site

The scenery is coming along very well, Andrew. I like the idea of the scree.

Leave the areas that are concerning you, now, and let your subconscious get to work whilst you finish landscaping the more straightforward areas.
