Some more fairly incomplete scenic work to share.

Firstly, Ive been building another building for the industrial estate at the back of the layout.



The large building the on right is a cut and shut piko engine shed. Theres a couple of unpainted knightwing portakabins there and the hacked hornby building.



All building need further painwork and weathering. The large building on the right just has a wash of primer on it.



Then theres the network rail depot. Actually I think this isnt NR, but some sort of storage facility.



Ive repainted it, added drain pipes which are unpainted, a shutter door and a couple of side doors, and a couple of signs.



This really is simple building. Built from bits of plasticard left lying about. Not built to any particular plan, just what looks right and fits in there. Its about 10x10 cm. In reality the real building is 100 feet x 100 feet, so you can get the kind of compromise we are working with.



Obviously its not planted yet. It still needs weathering.



Across the road from the Network rail depot is a modern (1990s?) housing estate.
Here is the road beginnings



And with some housing in place. Incompleted severn models houses. Lovely kits.



Im not sure about the block paving roadway. Ive used metcalf brick. I might look for something different yet.





And just in case you havent seen it on its own thread, here is the antitresspass boards in place...



And this is the backscene we are going to use, hopefully.
Not sized yet, this is just the pictures stitched together.

Anyone know of adecent printer that can do custom backscenes?



Just over a month to go... starting to get a bit edgy.

Cheers
Kirky

Nice work, Kirky.

I believe Lawrence had his backscene printed in one piece on vinyl so maybe he could help @Lawrence

Hi Everyone
Only a couple more photos to share today.
Didnt get too much done unfortunately.

Anyway, we've been doing a bit of gardening. I think we might be puttingup new fences tho, since the photos show very wonky ones.



And this one


All the fences you can see in these pictures are self build fences. I downloaded a few fence panel images from google images and then resized and copied into multiple lengths. Then printed out and stuck back to back. We are trying to recreate the multiple fence types that you see in modern gardens.
Obviously we havent mastered the art of laying stright fences.


cheers
Kirky

Looking good.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

You mean you've seen some straight fences somewhere, Kirky? ???
My panels are far worse than the ones you've modelled :-[

Fencing

We've done a bit more fencing. I think Ive said before, that in the modern world there are so many walls barriers fences and signs. Northallerton seems to be no different.

Fences around the housing estate





And some fencing around the car park. Note that thye cheeky little kink allows me to get the fence to end at a board end. Hopefully doesnt llok too obvious.







Cheers
Kirky

Very neat work.
Yes, we are a nation of fences. We all like our gardens to be fenced off from next door.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

How did you give the Peco plastic concrete sleepers a more realistic colour, please? (I need to do mine.)

Well thanks for that Chris. Im not so sure they are a more realistic colour but, yes they are painted.
Essentially the process was to glue down the track and check everything electrically. We then ballasted using the spread and dropper method, and then after allowing to dry out for weeks I painted the track and ballast using an airbrush with a very weak mix of precision paints track dirt. I repainted after allowing it to dry again. In certain places a third coat was added if it looked like it needed it. The rails were wiped in between. In the station we went over with a weak blackish wash to give the appearance of oil spillage. Hope this helps.

Cheers

A couple of pics of the platforms to share. This shows the platform edges horribly close. Ive been doing some other work this morning, but not much else worth photographing





The platform edges are the one product from smartmodels that I have found to be ok.
