Also made a couple of rock faces from sculptamould, fairly happy with the results, hopefully they will look ok once painted.

Hi all, a bit more progress. Plaster rock faces now painted with washes of acrylic paint, they will need a bit more weathering & detailing once in place but I'm pleased with how they have turned out so far.



Also some now some mod roc & rock faces are in place. Although slow going it's starting to take shape I think.








Cheers, Stu

Sure you're not slicing & dicing someone's grey matter, Stu? :worried:
I know it's not mine as there's way too much of it :-[

 ;D They do look a bit like that, hopefully they will look more like rock faces by the time I've finished with them  :worried:

Then took a break from doing the scenery for a running session. Nice to be able to run a full length HST on a decent size layout for a change

Excellent videos.
Looks really good.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks, Stu. Very good videos and a very satisfyingly realistic 'track noise'. Excellent work.

A few evening builds for the fictitious part of layout, 1st a small disused lineside hut, made from card & brick papers, not perfect but will be partly hidden in undergrowth once in place on the layout




Also built a scalescenes goods shed for the goods yard. It will still be in use but in it's last days so I can have some 16T minerals & vent vans in the sidings. I've made it look a bit run down with broken & bricked up windows, loose/missing slates & some grass growing out of the guttering












And lastly started on a signal box build






Cheers, Stu
