I've always stuck to the maxim of start off dark with everything, because it all fades over time.

Particularly with the rugged UV we cop here in Australia!

6oC sounds positively balmy.

Finally finished most of the new rock painting:



There will be a stone retaining wall in the big gap in the foreground.

After all of that rockwork and painting thought it would be a good idea to play test trains. Then that was it, - nothing else constructive done.  :D





The class 04 is a new addition. Got it in the January sales and then had a chip fitted by Douglas (ex of wickness models)

Hope that you are starting to feel better Laurence.

It is warm compared with the last 2 weeks. We moved to the south coast a couple of years ago. Idea was for a warmer climate but we have had a morning frost for pretty much every day for the past 2 weeks. By comparison the previous 2 winters have maybe had a total of 5 frosty morning between them. Seriously thinking about moving even further south although my wife points out that I will get very wet if I do so.  :D

I agree with Mick, those rock faces are top notch.
Brilliant.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I agree, too; excellent rock faces, Keith. Eventually, I will get around to trying to achieve the same effect on my Panzer Grey (really) rock faces. Now, some greenery would further add to the realism. 8-) The far right front corner of Cant Cove has just about been completed as far as greenery goes and I'm very happy with it.

Thanks Chris. Yes my grandson is keen to have some grass and I have trees on my shopping list. I will have a look at Cant Cove and steal some ideas!

Please, be my guest, Keith. You can see here that I need to weather the rocks as you have but the greenery, including some Cornish yellow gorse, is done. (A wooden fence would be good too along the cutting wall ridge.)
