The whole portal is a photo inside the grey brick surround. I've painted the road surface with the same paint as the flat surface where it meets. Two vehicles to hide the join.

Re: General Qs

I ballasted with n gauge ballast for 00 gauge track, finer, easier to spread and looks better. I spreaded with a small brush then 50/50 pva to water plus a squirt of washing up liquid. Applied it in a syringe, left to dry 48 hours. Wouldn't do it any other way

Re: Backscene blending success

You don't necessarily need to blend it. For me it's just as I have a road disappearing at both ends..here's a couple of picks of how I've blended the other end and how it runs parallel

Re: Backscene blending success

That looks really good. I've obscured it from the other angle with a well positioned tree. Unsure of the viva plate! I think your odds are short on royaltys !!
