I like the two cats Steve, I have two but they fight each other. I had a lazy day today waiting for a parcel from Yodel and had the two cats fighting to sit on my knee, in the end they took it in turns.

They were Casper and Felicity, both Persians and sadly not with us anymore. Both struggling to sit on my lap at the same time was the reason Fiona took that photo, it was particularly unusual :)

Ooooooooooohhhhhhh eck  :o :goggleeyes: :o :goggleeyes:

You have my sympathy sir. I have done the same....

Perhaps after mopping it up and assessing the damage, this become a heavily weeded area covered in lots of grass / shrubs / general debri?

Or can you re-ballast?

Nice bit of OTT weathering, Steve ;)
Oh well, no use crying over spilt paint.

I think it looks as if  tutenkhamun was really sleeping :sleep: and that is the real reason the picture was taken.

'Tis very much a brown day :(

This must be The Midden Image C J Freezer was on about :no:

I won't be reballasting as I find it very difficult to get two adjacent areas perfectly level without a ridge or trench between them.

Instead, I reckon Tamiya XF-80 Royal Light Grey (applied somewhat more sparingly and with a brush this time!) will be almost invisible once weathered in.

For a moment there I thought you'd struck a chocolate well and were hastily scooping it up into the nearest container.

Very realistic muddy puddle.

ďThere are never problems, just opportunities ď or something like that.

Hope that you can re-work it ok Steve.

Now thatís a pleasant thought. Iím probably more addicted to chocolate than to trains! :drool:

I think the kids are innocent. It was clumsy Ents tripping over their own roots when playing at sliding down the slope ;D

Oops, bugger, springs to mind. I'm sure you'll be able to rectify it OK though Steve.

I did something similar last weekend only with red paint. Luckily it was over my cutting mat and my fingers and not the layout but Mrs JohnN had a fizzy fit when she saw. She thought I'd had a bad accident with the scapel.  :o
