Update

Sorry for doing nothing and posting nothing but my youngest (only 1 year old) has been quite poorly for a few weeks and I just seem to be busy with the family at the moment! I'm sure you all know how it is at this time of year. Anyway, Santa brought me a total of 8 open wagons (all Hornby and only o...

Done a bit more painting, cliffs in grey, main coat before detailing. Also fitted, most unsuccessfully, the tunnel mouths. Had to cut them square as my tunnels are so low to give clearance to carriages, but hey ho. They'll look fine once the surroundings are painted, detailed and grass/bushes are ap...

I suppose it depends on the original.. if you download something that is 2000+ pixels across and stretch it, it will still look fine when only 18cm printed out. Would be a different story if you print A3 I guess?

Now measured tunnels in loft, go into Photoshop, change dimensions of photo and printed to card. Next I need to cut out and glue to thick card, place on ...

Well I spent a bit of time doing the first of the scatter on the mountain. The track you can see in the foreground is the new siding in place. The keen eye will see a small dirt footpath in place which will allow access between this siding area and my main sidings and the lower quarry. http://myweb....

I like the 2nd one, the tree out of focus in the foreground... Looks very realistic and nice ambient lighting.
