  • Painted the new rockwork today.

    WS pigments.

    I have now soaked the surface with diluted Modpodge so I can add the black/raw umber wash.

    • I built a Timberline kit I had in the stash.

      The Hardware store:



      An old kit with some small faults.



      I had to true up the walls, as they were leaning and too wide.



      The shop windows, built from wood strips and plastic castings were a challenge as the templates were wrong and the windows too wide to get a good fit....

      But it turned out pretty good.

      I added the awning as I didn't plan to have a lot of interior in this one.





      Needs some details, then it's finished.

      • I like the coloring of your rockwork, Michael and that's a nice neat job on your hardware store.

          • The layout is ready for more work.

            I've cleared out everything non-essential from the train room, which gave me a little bit better overview of how to proceed.









            I've got me some electrical work to do before I continue with the track laying.

            • Testing my new mobile phone: Motorola G9 play.

              With 48 megapixels and ability to take photos in RAW, it gives me more opportunity for post-editing.

                  • Hi,

                    I am enjoying the photos of structures and scenes on your layout, especially the overall views. It looks to me that in painting backdrops you put down layers of uniform color and go back to add details of mountains etc. I find it interesting that you don’t do the whole backdrop at once. I suspect that’s one big difference between a professional like you with complete control over your medium and an amateur like me. I doubt if I could mix the colors for mountains or forest the same if even a few months passed.

                    Thank you for posting. Excellent work.

                    Mike
