This is really looking good. I remember looking at the thread earlier and wondering how you were going to fill that space in the middle. I think the cement works really does the business and am looking forward to seeing what else will be in there.
The pylon does appear too big in the photo. It should be smaller given the implied distance from the other one and us as viewers. Maybe if it wasn't quite so high it may not be so obvious. Have you tried it a bit lower on the 'horizon'?

Looks great, the road bridge access was a good idea.

Hi Les

To be honest, I didn't think the pylon looked too big. They are big so-and-sos after all ;) and I have to say the feed road structure looks an excellent addition :) Look forward to seeing it painted, trimmed off, etc.

Cheers

Thanks for the comments guys. Had half an hour to spare so did a bit of 'plastering'. I think it'll be ok when it's landscaped.

Just read this thread for the 1st time.

Fantastic work!

Going to make a coffee now and go through from start to finish proper.

For what it's worth, I think the pylons looked good. The hill to the right kept them in scale for me...

Thanks Mark. I wish I had more time to work on it but with work etc, it's rare for me to get a good 'run' at it.

Nice, I like the terracing on the hillside with the houses on.

Hi guys.

I've spent quite a bit of time in the personal layouts section. The layouts are just getting better and better. Anyway I got a bit inspired to do a bit of work on my own layout. I gave the bridge a base coat of grey primer and then sprayed the crash barriers with Christmas decoration spray. They turned out ok. I also made a chain link fence for one of the houses on the hill and landscaped the area. I'll probably add some greener scatter when everything dries. Anyway here are the pics:

Any comments are most welcome.

Hi all.
Just got in from the dreaded 'work' and had to wind down so I added a few little details to the "hill". I added some static grass to create a verge on the edge of the road and added some scatter in places I missed last time. This is my first time to use static grass. I was surprised how easy it is to use but there is a fair bit of waste. I'll have to come up with some way of catching the 'overspray'. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Very interesting, Les, it's coming along nicely ;)

I particularly like that mesh fence, nice detail there.

Also that static grass makes a huge difference. Excellent.
