Mick, you'll be relieved to know that a short, temporary piece of platform has been constructed!

I chose my words carefully!

No time for working on the new station building today but I did photograph an experimental tree. I normally use toy stuffing material to provide support for the foliage but for this tree I used multi-strand wire instead of the larger gauge wire I've been using recently.



I thought this would provide plenty of support for the foliage so I didn't add any extra material, applying the foliage (Woodland Scenics coarse turf) directly to the wire. I built it up in three layers, letting the hair spray dry between applications.



Seems to have produced a nice, open result but twisting the fine wire took much longer than usual.

Excellent. Well worth the extra time taken to make it.

Some progress on the new station building, but unfortunately itís a case of two steps forward and one step back. Hereís how the model looked this morning.





This afternoon, doing another job, I cut the tip of my left index finger and put a plaster on to prevent it bleeding onto the model when I got back to it. Later, Iíd washed my hands about five minutes before handling the model so although my hands were dry the plaster wasnít Ė and it touched the roof, causing a nasty water stain in the printed slates.

Iím hoping that I will be able to paint the area to hide the problem but I may have to try to get the printed roof off and replace it. I usually get some varnish on roofs as soon as possible but I was delaying the job this time as I need to add some weathering. Very annoying!

Thatís a lovely model but I have to ask.........where is that stain?
I canít see a stain.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Those photos were taken before the accident. Here's what the damage looks like:



Definitely needs a fix as I can't think what would have produced that sort of discolouration. Very small paint brushes are at the ready...I'll report back later! The little extension awaits its roof covering, too.

Ah....I see now.
Iíd have thought paint it in and if the match isnít quite right cover with a very light wash or dry brush weathering powders or paints.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I've had a go at repairing the damage with paint and here's the result.



Roof tiles have been added to the extension and the foam board base has been repainted a darker tone. Next task is to add some posters and notices to the main building and then a job I really hate - the downpipes from the gutters.
