I'm going to try balsa wood vertical formers with thin strips of paper soaked in a suitable glue (whatever I can buy here) laid over them. I need something light and strong (and hollow) for hills rather than paper mache.

Best way I have found in crumpled newspaper or polystyrene former covered with plaster socked kitchen roll, add some PVA to make it stronger and water colour paint (brownish) to stop the white showing up any chips.   ;)

Thanks; that sounds rather better especially as I'm likely to have spare pieces of polystyrene insulating board.

Many thanks; yes, your hills are the effect I'm aiming for for the downward sloping meadows behind Cant Cove station.

Aside from crumpled newspaper, many years ago we were all exhorted to buy a shredder to get rid of unwanted mail with addresses on it (security against identity theft) so maybe shredded paper would do?
It seems our recycling guys won't take shredded paper ::)

Its been fiddle about day today. minimal progress on multitasked aspects of the layout
The ongoing balsawood ramp side build ups. Lay 6 and glue (while woodworking gue). Leave for an hour.
OK there are much faster glues but fumes from them soon wreck my breathing.
Glue tacking down flexi a few inches at a time (same glue as above)
Routing fresh/extra droppers through the baseboard.
Ripping out 1 metre of setrack and preparing to insert 2 short 00-9 points as an upgrade.
Smear Pollifilla 1st coat where applicable
Finish programming track diorama (work in hand)
Check sizes and clearances of ,lighter camera  (ongoing)
Think right outside box and make start on a  'hook in  wanderound local DCC bus board' for use at times when crawling under board is not a viable option due to bad back etc.
For now its just scrap wood/cable/plugs etc etc to see if its feasible before using stock plasticard etc as a permanent tool

 >:(  Monday 20th Jan 2014 is to be removed from my calendar.

Son has failed to return camera after borrowing it for a couple of hours last week
Opened a tube of flexi pollifilla just now and squeezed.....whole tube spread over hands, layoutboard and room in general :help: :help: :help:
....and its still only 10-30

Cripes!

Put the kettle on and after a decent cup of what you fancy,  approach the problem with calm dignity!

Good luck with the clear up!
