Trying out an old bean bag camera support I had... makes for better sharpness close up :)

That bridge scene is looking good.

Can I ask what ground cover you are using, please?

Thatís an excellent job on the cut out for the stream Andrew, i think it looks brilliant and adds to the effect of excess water from the mountains.    :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


Happy Modelling Andrew.     :thumbsup:

With kind regards

Thanks for the kind comments folks

George, the scatter I am using here is Gaugemaster (moorland or something similar) .. I have a jar of blend developing too, just to add a bit of variety.

Looking very good indeed.  :thumbsup:  The tree is certainly going to cause problems, though a nice bit of firewood for someone!

I added some extra scatter (was trying Co-op extra firm hairspray) to the trees' to try and break up the same-e-ness of them from the rest of the batch



Having fixed down the trackbed, was time to put the underlay down... I had a box of the black foam Woodland Scenic's underlay lying around, I had avoided using it up until now as it didn't take to curves very well (until I read the instructions and realised that you are meant to cut it in half (lengthwise  :doh: ) to do tight curves, then marry them up insitu again) - working ok so far



Did a bit more work on the small river and its surroundings to build up the layers of colours and rocky outcrops





Added some of the grey ballast stones to the upper part of the river, tried painting over the brown backscene cover too and also tried applying some of the very fine noch scatter to the golf course to make it look a bit smoother



Finally the distillery approach is ready to be laid



Blackford Petroleum & East of Scotland & Strathearn Oil have taken advantage of their joint buying power to place an order for two new locomotives

Thanks for the latest updates, Andrew. Please, do keep them coming. The scenery is coming along very well, now. The two Hunslet diesel shunters will certainly be kept busy with all your tank wagons.

Thanks Rod, with my affinity for Dundee United, I was tempted to go for one of the orange & black liveries (this affinity has already influenced the livery of the Tullibardine grain wagons) but I thought that was taking it a bit far to order 3!  I just hope the BP livery one gets enough pre-orders to justify production.

Thanks Chris, I am finding the scenery really enjoyable to do, am gearing myself up to tackle some ballasting in my time at home (and platforms, and buildings and wiring and trackbeds and loco repairs and loco DCC fitting and test track building and the long list of outside jobs to perform...... sometimes feels that I come back to work for a rest) :)

For me, ballasting and building construction can be soothing and good for the soul PROVIDED things are going well. As soon as things start to go pear shaped as they usually do for me sooner or later, these activities can cause great angst and stress and one would certainly be better off going to work and continuing at a later time.

Looking very good Andrew. I will steal the idea of using gaps in scatter to create rocky / stoney outcrops. So much more realistic than uniform scatter  :thankyousign:

Enjoying a bottle of McGuigan's finest Merlot at the moment. Although I am sure that our antipodean friends will tell me that it is exported rubbish!

The viaduct is looking really nice some nice sweeping track across it too. I didn't realise you had so much more track to lay still. Do you have an eventual track-plan on here somewhere that I may have missed? Or, is it like a lot of preserved railways, it just develops as it goes along?!
Cheers
Paul
