Re: My first ever model railway build.

A very good evening. I thought I'd put up a snap shot of layout from another perspective. I've carried out a little more scenery work on the viaduct and added some course grass on the elevated section of track. Pva still taking a little longer to dry but hopefully as it gets warmer, should be quicke...

You tease....

Rip it up? Didn't you organise the shed specifically for the layout?

It is a credit to your newly gained modelling skills though, a joy to see.

Keep the updates coming :)

Just my warped sense of humour....Lol. Thx for your praise.
Will keep updates coming. :D

Re: My first ever model railway build.

:hellosign: Well, I've made a big decision today regarding Marcroft. I have decided to dismantle the layout and venture onto other interests. It was fun whilst it lasted but I have other projects I'd like to venture into. Only joking! I absolutely love my layout. Seriously though, farm will be the l...

Re: My first ever model railway build.

What technique did you use for weathering your 'foofs' please? You mean the farm house roof? Can't see it too well in the photos, how about a close up :D Whilst sitting in my garden I looked at my roof, it was partly covered in a mossy green colour so I thought Ah! Went down to b&q, purchased a...

Re: My first ever model railway build.

:hellosign: Had a busy day at work, quite stressful so once home, I went straight to the shed. I took a bit of a gamble with the farm house, thought I would have a go at weathering the foofs a little thinking if this doesn't work, I'm stuffed. Luckily, it seems to have worked ok. I added a little mo...

Re: My first ever model railway build.

The farm is looking great, really well made farm tracks, I can just see the farmer bringing the cows down for milking!! Is the barn being filled with hay bales? Now that would be a scratch-building challange. Jim. I've actually got the bales in kit form. I'll probably start them this weekend. Lots ...

Re: My first ever model railway build.

Hi all. Another shot from a different angle showing small Sheep paddock just completed. I need to slow down, I feel like I'm spending all my spare time in the shed.....is that a bad thing? :)

Re: My first ever model railway build.

Heres an idea (to save some money) I notice you have no hedges, lots of fencing (very impressed with those and gates :) ), looks to "clean" and unclutered. Like your overgrown car (I like that), you can make hedges very cheaply and effective (far easier than making your own trees!) Buy 10...
