Thanks Guys!

Pete - too true, my grass here is always green, all year. I spend a lot of time looking at the photos I took when I was in the US to ensure the right colour but if you go further west then it all seems to look a lot browner!

I've started a little series on tarmac. This video is about using paper sheets to model it.

This week's video on tarmac uses Tamiya texture paints to get the tarmac effect:

Great ideas. I'm working on a small alley on our club layout and I'm going to experiment with your technique.

Thanks Guys, it's always good to inspire people to try new things!

This week I'm looking at how to model tarmac/asphalt using silicon carbide grit. It's a really easy method.

Modelling tarmac/asphalt around complex track work can be really difficult. This method is really easy:

Thanks Guys. Appreciate the comments!

I was introduced to this week's method by Ken Hamilton and I really have to thank him for this excellent method. It is so easy! It took me longer to cut out the card base than to do the painting.

These paints look amazing straight out of the can and could easily be used for brand new tarmac/asphalt with nothing else except a few white lines.

Finally, we're painting those pieces of foam, card and grit so that they look like a weathered dock.

All those docks and wharves we put on a layout need something at the edges and this video shows you what and how:

This is the final week on docks! I can't believe this huge section of my layout is nearly finished.

Thanks for following along with me and if you want to see some final photos then you can see them here:
