In addition to flock, the magic grass applicator turned up. So today I've been making a mess and painting the inside of the culvert.

Then I need to make even more mess with plaster.

Oh and some other things turned up...



I showed the girlfriend but she didn't even raise a smile, such a heathen!

Curved culvert has taken a while.

Bottom left is after I smoothed is with a damp brush and finger. It's just filler. Sanding and priming tomorrow!

The culvert is about 50% there, needs a light wash for the water bed/stream flow.



After that it needs putting in the recess and the earth building up to both sides, then flocking and shrubbery.

For ref the drain mouth/opening is 3.3cm wide (15ft scale), so this is rather small.

That is a BEAST of a culvert  >:D

You have painted and weathered it really well. That will be a brilliant feature for the front of your layout. :thumbsup:

Not sure how Shapeways works, I know they have been mentioned on the forum.

Oh my god, there's actual N scale trolleys!

I'll scurry off to order some, I do worry they'll be far too tiny to make sense of - but intrigued to see how well they come out.

 :hmmm: I'm pretty sure there's an etched shopping trolley available, just can't recall from where. :dunce:

You could do worse than send an email to Cliff at

I can not see anything on his site, but you never know.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.
