Right i,ve layed all the polystyrene down on the layout modroc,d the hills so they are ready for painting tomorrow i,ve used a mix of 2 clump foilage dark & light & some of the woodland scenics horse hair colored their static grass to super detail the bufferstop area i,ve also clumped some static grass stuff alone the layout to creat some bushy weeds in the ballast i thought the static grass type stuff would be a major headache to get the right effect & i am shocked just how easy it is to get the effect i wanted. the layout is really coming together now im amazed at how well its looking & how fast its been built.
I,ll put the photos on in a week Emma has swanned off for a week to scotland we the my folks so i am holding the fort & the kids ahhhhhhhhhh :shock:

Hi
This is developing well and I'm looking forward to seeing the next photos. As an N gauger its interesting to see something in a larger scale but in a small area. I think the 'depot' is one of the best things to model in this way and not a lot of stock needed either.
Its really good that you've kept and published an ongoing record of costs and I think people will find that useful.
Thanks
