The back scene merges quite beautifully with the gorge :thumbsup:

I agree. A really superb job. I had wondered how you would blend the two very different styles of backscene in. With a few more trees and bushes diminishing in size (to achieve a false perspective of distance) the foreground will blend into the background perfectly and the river flow from the back to front of the valley. Your success with the Modelwasser encourages me to buy some to use, too.

Very well blended, Andrew.
Can I ask what the circular thing in the first picture is - left hand side about an inch below the bush? :dunce:

Thanks Mick, I was trying to think of something clever to say..... unfortunately it is just a poorly disguised screw head for the backboard  :-[  when I continue up the hill with the flock, I will disguise it with a tree or tall bush

Sorry to have pointed it out, Andrew. I thought you had a sneaky camera lens or something in the bank.
As you say, a well sited tree or bush will hide it.

The only thing I keep in the bank is the overdraft :)

Got the refinery head shunt laid finally



The Modellwasser just about dry, will be quite a subtle effect on this stream, might need an extra layer where it needs to be more obvious



While I had the flocking stuff out (sure there is a double entendre in there somewhere, over to you NPN  ;) ), started adding grass to the cutting by the golf course - that is not the right bridge for there either, was just trying it out - apologies for the blurry photo



With less than a week to go before the A4 gathering, was time to get the bridge in place - weighted down with a bit of ahem "ballast"   :)



needed something a bit more industrial to weight down the track bed beyond the gorge towards the distillery boards

Don't start off on the double entendres - you'll have everyone following like sheep!
With kind regards

Thanks for the latest update, Andrew. The secenery is coming on now very well. I noticed the heather scatter as I have some and tried it out but did not think it looked suitable for Cornwall so spraypainted it a green colour then added other scatter!

The Panmayne portion of the Wadebridge to Perthshire train will be photographed soon behind 'The Green Dragon', at Cant Cove. (I want to try laying the paving stones on the platforms, first.)

Hi Andrew,

All looking good, especially the scene at the beginning of Star Wars 2 (the Empire Strikes Back) in the last photo.  :)

The 2 guests from Guin (which might be spelt Xuin, been researching  :hmmm:, for the A4 gathering, have officially left on their way to Cornwall but prob no pics til Sunday as the photographer (ie my wife's phone) has other commitments.

Means I can get more done though.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Similarly, the Truro portion (via Port Perran and Trepol Bay) will be photographed on Monday.
The motive power for this portion of the train is being kept a closely guarded secret.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Do you have a date, yet, please, for the Gathering of the A4s, Andrew?

Thanks Keith. It's been a busy couple of days ::)
Why should it always be me who gets into trouble, anyway? ;)
