Hi Biggy
No problem, hope it goes well, I use basic PVA but in this instance I "painted" it across the board quite thinly. I think this really helped with the drying of the card, but also kept the added bulk of the glue down as well, it's holding well though and even survived being flexed (by accident).

Cheers
Colin

I need to finish the track work but couldn't face more ballast.
So I finished the bridge portal instead!

Looks like a good decision to me!

That bridge is looking great.  I've been given a couple of boxes of Ratio kit 'bits' which I am currently rummaging through for my background.  I need to build a low relief canal bridge on my end scene and am planning something like your bridge on a smaller scale.

Honest to God, I was going to do some more work on the permanent way. No really.

I couldn't face it to be honest. So I scratch built a panel fence using a preview picture from a famous diy store. Then Base coated a garden and built the fence, laid two paths, planted a hedge and fitted some street lights! Anyway, see below for the fruits of my labour.

I've not done anything for a few weeks. But these turned up yesterday:









So I need to finish the track work and I can get some more scenery on the board!

Not sure what they are, etched brass gates? Should look good made up!  :thumbsup:

They are all laser cut card or wood, not properly investigated yet as they look very fragile.

A careful study followed by 'slowly and steadily' is going to be the best bet.  Love to see them made up.

Yes, slow and steady. Made up 3 gates and planted some more hedge. The far right of the layout is now taking shape. I was going to finish balasting the track tonight, never mind.







The track needs to be completed and ground prepared before I plant the wire security fence.

So far I've managed to resist the same temptation. But I suppose if one is of a certain era, and I am, so it's only a matter of time before I cave. :D

I'm liking the topiary too. :thumbsup:

Nice to see somebody has the same "work ethic" to some jobs me! I honest to goodness put off building a hill, and then took the longest time to flock / static grass it as I was putting it off!!! Glad I did it now, and love my little static grass applicator tool but... Yeah some times you've just gotta bite the bullet right!
Loving seeing the laser etched gates. Been thinking about getting some but not (until today) seen anybody using them. Are they easy to put together?
