It's a nice easy kit. I added some black thread with a small chain link for the water release rope.

Looking forward ro seeing 0 16.5 board.

Thanks for the comments.

It's progressed quick because I had Monday & Tuesday off work. So I spent hour after hour ballasting & rust painting! I have still only done about 40% of the track on board 1 !!

Charlie the back scenes are the Peco ones (SK25 & SK26 Town scenes, I am also going to use SK12 & SK13 Country scenes on board 2). They are ok and only cost £1.10 each for the large size. I painted the back with blue emulsion called "Cloudless" from Wikinsons, then cut the sky off the back scene (As even the large size aren't tall enough to cover my back boards) and stuck the bottom bit on with PVA. I find that it also means you don't notice the joins in the back scene as much as you would with the sky section left on. Still need to paint some clouds on (Or get my mum to do some as she's a good painter!).

Update....Ballast detailed & Carriage Shed built

Blackened some of the rails and ballast in places where the locos stand.

Image

Carriage shed now built & painted. It just needs weathering a bit now.

Image
Image

Here's a general picture of board 1 so you can see the % done so far. Still a lot of detail to add to what has been done.

Image

I'm now making some trees out of cuttings from trees in the garden & lichen. Also working on the station and level crossing area.

I take it that wasn't an accident :wink:

Utterly splendid job so far Jason. You can feel rightly proud. I particularly like the carriage shed. It looks very solid and, more importantly, enhances the visual appeal of the whole model.

Where does the road go to on this side of the level crossing?

Cheers
