Happy Sunday.

The castle is almost finished, fair play to Scale scenes as I have built his model but instead in cardboard in plastic card with a few additions based on my what I wanted to achieve.



Over the last few weeks, I have done some serious running and started writing down all little issues which I faced, today I manage to spend a good few hours solving a few of them so hopefully, next session will be a bit more smooth.

I was in doubt slightly, another running session of working on the scenery, scenery won this time, saved a lot of trees from my old layout. I am planting only the best ones as my standard of building is much higher as I had when I was building Highbury fields.







I have a few left to do and started building the next lot already so lots to do over the next couple off weeks.

Best regards

Maurits

Yes see what you mean Maurits those trees do look very good, nothing wrong with the castle, very impressive. Yes on my new layout I am hoping to get some smooth running this time. The plan is to take a little more care when track laying, I think most of us are guilty of rushing to get some track down and then end up with issues.

Superb video Maurits, so much action and in a terrific setting - blown away by how seamless the transition from layout to backscene is, think we all try to do it & maybe come close here and there, but yours is blended in everywhere!

The castle truly is an eye catcher - brilliant stuff

Yes I have to add (and probably not for the first time in this thread by me) that your ability to colour match the foreground and the backscene is absolutely exceptional, and the depth it adds to the scene is excellent.
