Progress at Longstone. Here is a quick snap of the passenger shelter on the scenic "end" board showing the other half of the platform. The shot was taken while we were working on the creation of the gorge behind, called "Fox Gill". It's such a simple building but it took an age to complete (partly because I wanted to model the wood weathered, and partly because I mucked the roof up and had to re-make some of it), it is made of a foamboard shell covered with coffee stirrers, with balsa corner uprights. The roof is 3mm mdf, this was covered with p.v.a. and tissue added for the roofing felt. The fence is being painted at the moment, that has to be weathered also.
The next shot shows "Triton" crossing the bridge.
My wife has been working on the stream (8 coats of varnish), rocks (cork pieces, painted), ferns and plants (allsorts).
Next is picture of "Proteus" rounding the bend in the rock cutting before crossing the bridge.
All the track on this board needs weathering and weeds to finish. On the higher areas my wife has been adding Heather in flower, one or two plants can be seen on the right. She cuts up small hedging strips (the Peco K&M ones), flattens them a bit, then adds 4mm purple flowers in different shades.
