The river bed is really taking shape, the change with the second coat has made a big difference and I do like the outlet flow.

Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing the finished river

Stay safe

Your terraforming skills are way above mine, Andrew, but are providing me with some great ideas.

Thanks folks .... I don't know if skill is the right word Mick.... but I'm taking it!   :thumbsup:

A case of before & after here, have started to flock the river in the lower stretches, now that the water has dried



there are a few patches that are bare, but I am ok with that, will be coming back over it with additional grass + static grass.



the final legs are going in on the viaduct, had to improvise with what was lying around to make sure they dried relatively straight



While I had the brush out, doing the highlights on the river, I did a bit of the same at the dam, hard to see in this pic, but at the bottom of the ovverflows there is a bit of build up and on the surface of the outfall ... where is Austin Spindler when you need him to take an aerial photo!



So ... after a lot of prevarication and doubt ... here is the viaduct in it's almost completed state... just need to fill some gaps at the pier/deck interface .... but I hope the bulk of this build is behind me now!  The river bed has also had a few further applications of paint



You may recall the set of 3D wagons that Mike @maridunian produced that I was painting up .. .well they now have transfers applied ... and are just awaiting access to the carriage & wagon works to get fitted up with chassis's .... they are seen here hiding behind the pickle works buildings that will appear on the box file thread I started.... (the T gauge circuit was a xmas present last year)



The other bank gets a dollop of flock
