Weathering is very addictive isn't it! Once you've weathered one loco the rest look too shiny and so on it goes!

This layout is coming along very well. The sky adds a nice bit of depth to the back-scene. The last photo looks very effective.

Been pottering about in the loft the past few days so a few small changes to be popping up on here...

Fenced off around the low relief warehouses I created, bit more greenery and the hard standing painted..

Weathered up the previous bit of seciruty fence and think it makes a great improvement in its appearance..

General view across the centre of the layout with the old metcalfe low relief houses along the backscene just to see what they look like..

Wow the fencing looks really good. Is that scratch built or kit built? Either way it looks really good, especially the shot with the van. It suddenly made me thing of a Guy Ritchie film. Perhaps you should have a go at setting up a little cameo for us! :P

Cheers,

Stuart
