Some lovely photos of your TMD Dan, some great detaing.

I did notice though that the grey ballasting by the portacabins looks like its clumped up. The best way to what I've learnt, is to put a couple of drops washing up liquid in the PVA mix, this helps break the surface tension of the water. Also to spray the the ballasted area prior to PVAing, by spraying the area with water mixed with a couple of drops of washing up liquid with a plant mister.

You can salvage your work though. By re-wetting the area with a warm solution of the PVA mix. Leave for about 10 mins then press back into place with a suitable flatish instrument. I found a teaspoon good for this.
Regards,
Steve

hi ive built a disued fuel point next to my shed this is glued down and it blue tacked to the shed (very small amount) so the shed is still removable, its painted up but there will be no hoses, i plan to add a few barrels there 1 or 2 maybe but thats as far as ill go with it.
(although im not too sure on the floor)

Hi Dan,

weathering of the floor looks good. Makes it look like a real diesel depot :D . Well done.

well been a busy day today!, started off by enrolling at Leicester college in electrical engineering lvl2 extended diploma,

then came home and had a a look at the layout and used cotton buds (only thing available) to look for a way that a walk way can be made between the two hard standing areas, after around an hour of different ways i could do i decided on the easiest way, straight through the middle!, so i set off in getting the ballast/ground cover up where the path was going to be and then created the path borders with L shaped evergreen strips, (not sure which size), this is so the whole thing is accurate and square as im not very good with filla,
next i waited for the pva to dry holding the L section down then set away filling with polyfilla, i made it very slightly more watery than normal to make it easier to spread, it seems to be ok so far (was done at around 7pm) this now needs to be painted
the part inbetween the points is a peice of plasticard blu-tacked down, will eventually be stuck after painting!

also i added the inside shed legs to fill it up abit as it seemed abit open, these will be painted in due coarse,
does anyone have any idea what colour they should be? i have no idea myself, any help appreciated, also i have been playing around on a computer with different logos,warning signs and clearance signs getting them to oo scale on the pc, these will be printed off on next trip up the library! my printer doesn't seem to want to print anything else other than pink, even with a new cartridge.

so that's all for today folks! pictures below :)

thanks for reading through!
