I like the low down angle you've taken the last shot from. Good progress. :)

This is going well. The good scenic work deserves some proper ballast in my view. I especially like the scratch built card buildings - these can become addictive.

Thanks. I shall reflect on ballasting in due course!

Meantime, a new platform basic shell and some ground work in shed area.

And the longest train I've ever run!

Really coming together mate. Are they brick papers?

Thanks Rob. Metcalfe "bricks" - either in the kits or just sheets for the DIY bits.

Carving and plastering blue foam takes about one-tenth of the time of card formers and Modroc! So easy....

Slowly bringing the road down into centre stage!

Progress slows as weather improves (and cycles need post-winter servicing!).

Hi,

Looking good - the more you cover the board with landscape the better it looks.

I think the hill blends pretty well with the back-scene now.

Regards,
James

I agree. The landscape blends beautifully with the backscene. Keep up the good work mate!

I'm really enjoying this build. I've seen many "exhibition" layouts that have a very obvious transitions between the layout and back scene. Yours is as good as anyone could hope to achieve :) Carry on sir!

Aw shucks, chaps! Blushing so unbecoming in one of my age! But even over-generous compliments gratefully accepted.

I did put some thought into 3-d bits in relation to the flats - seemed that with only 27" of board the more visual depth I could conjure up the better.

Another bit of pure white landscape covered...

Onward (if slower)....

It certainly coming on a pace, is that a fossil I can see in the cut of end of the hill?

A fossil? Better sight than mine!

Some more ground cover and round and round we go....
