I'm enjoying watching your layout come together. It has a really interesting atmosphere, maybe a kind of minimalism, that I really like. Will be following along with great interest.

Very nice indeed! I too like the window backdrop and water reflections. Looks like low tide with all those barnacles on the pilings.

Not a lot new. Continue to work on finishing some basic scenery and ensuring track has no frustrating spots. Ballasting is next. Due to our feline's love of Scenic Express trees, I can no longer have them. Very frustrating to be at the mercy of a cat. Will continue to work on scenery for a while covering white/worn spots and adding texture.

Some recent pics.

Somehow I got lost but Iím found again. Great progress with the marsh grass. It looks just like what I see driving around the coastal SE.

Your groves of trees are more spectacular than I remember. I guess there are Super Trees in there but are you using something else for the tall ones?

Dave,

Nice shots. I love my cats, and I hope they don't love my layouts when I build one.

As always, thanks for looking and commenting.

Frank, the pines are wood bbq skewers with wire wrap and then a dip in plaster/sawdust. I'm experimenting with the pine needles and have recently tried using fiber, with Sulfur tufts. I spray paint them with grey and brown colors. Hope to have more pics of the modified trees soon.

Yesterday I placed an order with Scenery Express for a bunch of stuff. I'll be working on the grasslands some more leaving some of the area very uniform but with the new order of materials, trying to get some more texture in other areas for variation. I will still keep a relatively monochromatic palette.

In the interim, worked a bit on the swing bridge and on plastering in some bare areas.

That last shot is great but you do need people and vehicles so it doesn't look like a ghost town.

Try using "Keep Off" cat repellent to deter your feline from attacking to trees.

It's always fun to get a package in the mail. My Scenery Express package arrived. Mostly static grass and foliage. Took out the Noch GrassMaster and started filling in blank areas. Also repaired the trees that had suffered during the add on of the new section. Now touching up areas that were just roughed in.

For my birthday, placed an order from Mico-Mark. Nothing terribly exciting; a bunch of tools to replace those I've abused over the years and also some paint and a small compressor for my airbrush. A major project upcoming is the auto bridge that will be in front of the trestle spanning the marsh. I have the plastic kit already and will be able to build it the right way when the tools arrive.

Some pictures of the trees, marsh and an area on the old section that I've touched up.

Some excellent modeling to be seen here.
Thanks for sharing.
