So......back into modelling.
We had a nice morning here so we took a walk around a local lake plus coffee at the cafe. Before that, I started painting some walling for the small park next to Tregonning station.
This afternoon, I was able to glue the wall in place then cut some Metcalfe sticky back tarmac for a path then apply the static grass.
This is a photo at the messy stage whilst the grass sets and before I hoover up the excess.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

A bit more progress this evening.
First and foremost Iíve tidied up!
The bushes and trees are only placed for now but Iím reasonably happy with them. The bushes will represent flowering types (eg rhodedendron) so Iíll add some flowers once they are firmly planted.
I think the pathway is fine.
Iíll paint the benches (either brown or white?) and the lamp posts.
I still have the rail side of the wall to finish of course and Iím thinkin* of ornamental gates for the park entrance.

Iíll sleep on it before doing any ore this evening.

looks good

Why not start a art project ammongst the little people at Tregonning. All the associations should individually design / paint a bench (or a lamp post) to make the park a "community affair"?
Maybe even depict a few people adorning a benh or two?

More progress with the small park today and Iím rather pleaed with the effect.




Iíve still got the railside edge of the wall to do and Iím thinking about a park gate/gates. Other than that, any more would, I think, overdo it.

Brilliant detailing, Martin.  Absolutely jolly-dee.

Two suggestions, poppy wreaths at the war memorial every Armistice Day.  And a dog.  Every park needs a dog.  Maybe called Piran.

They donít do things by halves at Tregonning. A man sized poppy!

Agree about the dog. I just donít have any free at the moment. It will be attended to in due course.
I have, however started to add scenery on the rail side of the park wall.
And sorry, itís just a bit out of focus. There are several things waiting for the glue to dry so I couldnít rest my phone on anything to hold it steady.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Coming along very well, Martin. The park is particularly fine. There were a lot of rhododendron bushes with purple flowers near Bodmin General station:

And I've always wanted to have some, rather smaller, ones in the cutting outside Cant Cove station so I look forward to seeing a close-up photo. of yours.

I think white-painted benches would be right for a park in the 1960s.
