Big hole now cut and board painted with Wilco Terracotta using a tester pot.
Next task find a suitable dish to use under the hole before landscaping can begin. Could end up being Pound shop foil cooking tray.

Good news but a tad concerned re tin foil idea. Very fragile that stuff and an accidental  bump (I'm super-accident prone with that sort of thing) could mar all your efforts.

Maybe an cheapo plastic or pressed steel something would be a safer bet but I'm sure you know what you're doing.  :thumbsup:

Looking forward to seeing the next set of pics.

Temp mobile broadband back, so here are some pics.

 





Hole in board looks like it has a couple of straight edges but that is because the braces under the board show  in the photo. The only straightish edge is actually where the track  goes towards the buildings.

Dave - the foil dish will be used to catch drips and also as a support whilst I build the landscape using my trusted card lattice and PVA method.

To give an idea how big the hole is I can actually fit the kiln into it. :goggleeyes:

Bridge construction well underway.
Need to sort out if I need any more track and how to do the cutting the bridge will span.

Dead basic trackplan for this.


3 lengths of flexitrack needed. All the rest of the track sitting in the project box.
I know the points and some of the track is setrack but  I am happy with that.

Bridge will be on the single curve and the brickworks is in the middle.

There will also be a backscene 10" in from the rear of the board.

Hi Mike,

Nice little plan :thumbsup:. I only use setrack and flexitrack, not had any problems.

The left hand end (single track) may be moved nearer the middle of the board.
Depends on wether I  add a cottage to the left hand end.

Started building the clay pit.
This will take several days to complete due to letting layers dry before doing the next one.

Currently looking like a big empty pond, work in progress on the clay pit.

Progressing steadly, started to build up the surrounding areas in the brickworks.
Std gauge track will not be laid until the middle has been completed. This is to avoid copious amounts of PVA etc getting on track.
Real life rule applies to above - the scenery was there first.
Sheet of hardboard sitting behind the sofa now ready for the back scene, just got to decide how high I shall make it.
