Layout Progress #4

More good work

The Model Railways of Oly Turner and Chris Matthews

Well there has been progress, it may look like my work rate has gone through the roof but it is more that the layout is at the stage where half an hour’s work gives a visual impact.

The grass was something that I was not expecting to take so far but got over excited. I am still not sure its where I want it and a final layer of patchy more dead grass applied may give it what I think is missing, particularly if I use a static grass applicator rather than a puffer bottle.

The giant black piles are future mounds of coal/general spoil. These are made from DAS and secured with PVA and painted black.

The yard surface and ballasting is real ash from the fire place sprinkled on tiling grout. The puddles still are not where I want them with plenty more varnish to be applied.
