None taken but there's history on Brian's thread and I didn't want to be thought to be raking it all back up. Now back to your excellent layout.....

Thanks for the pm by the way - I've responded.

Well been a while, had loads of jobs backing up and her indoors must be obeyed!! Nearly finished the N layout now and with this spell of nice weather have started in earnest down the shed. As so many paople have said before, design change always happens when you start laying track down !! So with that said most of the track has been removed and the landscaping has begun. Rocks everywhere !! More expanding foam and plaster roll than I know what to do with and messy stuff, buy hey, it's great fun being able to make a mess and not get shouted at!!
Over the next week or so I'll post some pics of the developing layout, in the meantime here are a couple taken of this weeks efforts...

Wow the rock faces in the first and third photo look amazing! How much expanding foam have you used so far then?

To be fair the rock faces that are painted are made from chicken wire, covered with plaster cloth then brushed with fine filler. All in all took 2 days to complete. Painted with a wash of Woodland Scenics yellow ochre, oversprayed with halfords zinc primer and then drybrushed with some creamywhite emulsion. The expanding foam you can see in the other pic is an experiment but so far is costing too much. The first range (photo 1 & 3) is about 6 foot long, it will have 3 tracks at the base with various buildings dotted around. Toying with the idea of a mountain road but we'll see.

Thanks for the comments guys, watch this space....

As everyone else has said - brilliant work.

I will be interested in comparing the end results of the 2 methods you're using,
