I know you will already have mentioned what you use as the covering of your underpinnings Maurits, but is that white stuff garden fleece? And what is the black stuff under it please. It looks very good for a plaster base due to the natural draping. Impressive. :thumbsup:

black is the garden stuff, the white is just kitchen roll with wall paper adhesive. once dry it's a very stable base for the next step. ( only takes a day or 2 to dry )

The black material looks very much like garden membrane, as would be put underneath gravel to allow water to soak through and prevent weed growth.

Not that I'm any Percy Throwup, but by the time weeds have struggled through the membrance they're so weak it's a doddle to just pull them out or use a simple weedkiller spray.

Happy Sunday all.

done a lot over the last couple of weeks.

firstly , my own impression of Clayton tunnel as I felt this would be a very nice additions to Hills and Meadows.

it all started with a google search, after this I did a mock up from card board , once I was happy I started with the model using slaters plastic plates


and a couple of nights later, the model was sort of finished, only need to do some minor details



another big job I am doing are the cliffs and rocks on this part of the layout including the concreted goods area.



looked really scary but once dried it looks so much better


still lots of sanding and corrections to do but it needs to be completely dry first.

same for the cliffs it didn't look really well but after a couple of hours and a first try to create rocks it's much better






really looking forward to tomorrow to see how it looks when it's completely dry

Many thanks, Maurits, for this update. Excellent scenic work. I also like the tunnel mouth and the concrete yard area. I'm sure that all will look fine when dry. Once the rock areas are fully dry, I'd use a metal file and sandpaper to rub away any too sharp edges to make the rocks look very natural.

That looks really rather impressive.
Excellent work.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
