 :ngauge:The first photo shows halewood village . The imaginary line had had to be cut back as i do not have room to create the ford factory. The photo with the map shows garston village. Again  I do not have the room at home to create the garston container terminal

Update time. So a couple of horrid work shifts out the way....n I'm having the weekend to myself ...  once the shopping out the way, I will make some trees. There is a small public footpath at the bottom of a wood near home so may venture there for suitable twigs and branches. So far .... I have painted the road , its s slightly darker colour as only had a snap when the undercoat was down. More scraps of offcuts were transformed into a freight depot.                                                                     Then fencing was made with my gimlet twisting holes glueing nails that were made for picture framers and tying string  super gluing too. Finally when that dried adding ballast to represent gravel. The housing and chapel scene were cut from freestone models strips of backscenes. And pva on to strips off offcuts ensuring I cut the correct size
.     I also used the lid from an old toothpick container for a container model left doors open.

                a couple of other items .... I used letraset on white card to create signs and a post box, people and phone box hit from northwestern models

Lots going on there as Laurence says.
My main concern is those picture frame nails acting as fence posts.

Hand down - blood everywhere  :D

Very simple martin. Cannot obtain fencing in shops so out came the gimlet  , the pva. Bored holes then  placed those nails and once glue has dried file ends
 They are not that sharp and I so not feel the pain threshold. I did once slip off a ladder a long time ago and a nail ended up in my hand only half a cm in no blood and no pain. Onwards upwards with modelling

On the positive side, I have been able to clean up a piece of track with the graphite stick  , paint the fence, add lichen.
.   I have added lichen to add to the forest just to fill a corner

Also the hill created from layers of card, tissue built on a framework of chicken wire, scraps of wood was sprayed garden grass colour from a tin I found in the hardware store, then lichen added
