Some good detailing there Martin - and I do like the Metcalfe buildings, they look just right in their settings.  :thumbsup:

I love this layout Martin, Tregonning looks like a real thriving community.

Thank you. I think the Metcalfe buildings need ďbedding into the sceneryĒ a bit to stop them looking a bit stark. Iíve also added a very slight watercolour wash in places to to e down the rathernew feel.
Iíll be adding downpipes and, of course, chimney pots.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

As Graham (BoxTunnel) says it looks a nice thriving community. As regards my own Coldhill layout the station has been based on Coldstream Station which was just outside Cornhill and the only immediate residential buildings were the station cottages but at least that will be something. Keep up the good work.

Weíve been out all day.
Half an hour to spare before our evening meal so........  just enough time to paint a few fish  ;)

A few more pictures of Tregonning. We were out most of today (as I said earlier) but I managed a bit of work late this afternoon.
First some additional work on the next two houses in the road. Note that I need to sweep up. Iíve added a pond, stepping stones and a rockery to number 4:


Mr and Mrs Trigg are off shopping but Mr Trigg has been distracted looking at the fish in his pond:


Now a look along the case as a railcar leaves the station. This gives a bit of an idea as to how things sit together:


And a view in the opposite direction. Note the pub, The Railway Inn, which isnít finished yet. Iíve also added white lines to the road:


A close up of the station area. I need to add all the detail later so the platform appears rather bare at the moment :


And finally this is the far end on which little work has been done. The building behind the goods shed is a scratch built shop. We then have the Metcalfe fishmongerís shop then a Farish Farm Shop which I bought today. It will be converted into a small outlet for cream from the local creamery. The road will continue past the small shop then rise over the railway at the rear by means of a scratch built over bridge:


Thank you for taking a gander. Feel free to be critical or add any suggestions for improvements or changes.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

You never know, we might find our way over your way one day.
Glad you like the layout. Iím enjoying building it.
I have an idea for a very small micro layout once this one is completed.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

As ever, the close up photos reveal little problemswhich are harder to detect with the naked eye.
I can see a few things which need sorting!

Thank you for these super pictures, Martin.

I had been mulling over your earlier remark about painting 'a few fish'.

All makes perfect sense now.  Will you be painting a heron next?

That would give Mr Trigg something to worry about...

Oh dear....I feel a net over the pond may be needed!
