Went to my local model shop to get some things.

Some more scenic cement and scenic glue. Also i picked up some Woodland Scenics Field Grass which should be interesting to see how it turns out. I also bought a Peco N Gauge Goods Shed which looks like a good kit.

Some pictures will be posted up later on.

Earlier today i was looking at the work i had done on the scernery (scatter/fine turf etc) and i realised that it had turned extremely hard :? and it easily crumbled away from the baseboard. I thought why it did this and i came up with a theory. The PVA glue mixture i had made was absolutly rubbish! :lol:
Fortunatly i have looaaaaads of fine turf colours left so i will be taking up the rubbish parts and respraying it with the proper stuff made by Woodland Scenics.
I also bought a A3 piece of nice thick card today so the base of the platform will be made and i have decieded to place the card round the tracks in the goods yard.
All I can say now is.......... I have alot of work to do before its completed where before i realised my layout was not far from completion. It isnt now :wink:
