Thanks for the comments, my friends.
Les, is this an observation or a question? Apart from the change of shade when the ink dried, I haven't noticed any subsequent fading.

More scenery progress.

The beginning.



And then later... I wonder if I will be happy with these somewhat small rocks or if I'll add some bigger ones as in Dave's scene. I think it's not bad this way. And I think that adding a lot of greenery to the vertical rocks makes the cligg much more acceptable.

Nice work Frederic...

What is the green "stringy" material you're using?

Carl, that's a product called polyfiber. I applied it directly against the cliff, sprayed some glue, being careful to hit only the area covered by the fiber and then sprinkled some WS turf. Gives a thin, relatively airy if you don't put too much foliage, look. When it's dry you can even give it more volume by stretching it away from the rocks with tweezers.

Frederic, It's nice to be able to follow the "cereal" presentation of your layout again. the rock work and foliage are looking good.

Bill Gill, you're murdering the English language, like some cereal killer. New film idea: Bill Gill Kills. If you were REALLY good you'd do your puns in French. Frederic might have something to say about that.

All in good fun.

That's really nice, Frederic. I like the view of the bridge decks in the last shot, before the rails are down.

Thanks for the great comments, my good friends. Cereal killer, I love it, Bill and Michael...

After a little rest - musical events plus modelling other (secret for the moment) projects, the Sn3 work was resumed today, with the spiking of about 4' of track over the background bridge and a little more. Here are a few pics.





This one shows how I used my cell phone as a tool to check the track tangents are OK, something that is difficult to do with the eyes due to the location of the layout.



The bridge is not totally done, though. I think I'll add a few barrels to help fight the cinders caused fires, and I have to touch the ends of the ties with India ink...

Sweet!

Modeling secret?


As you think, so will you be.
