Really superb. The layout expresses some where deep nature tone :) Are you planning for trees? Would go for just a few.
Cheers

Yes, thanks Kupzinger.

I think a few well placed trees or shrubs would help finish the landscape. I kind of like the rugged windswept look. Fearful of them falling off though as it is a portable model which might take a few mild shocks here and there.

Bridge has arrived so will add that tomorrow and complete the ballasting too.

Very happy with the reactions I'm getting. Thanks everyone for such positive feedback.

Hi There,

It's been a few weeks but have made a little progress. The temporary box has been lined with velvet panels and the model now has another girder bridge. Need to adjust final sizes of the model a few mm each side to make it fit. A BANDSAW trim :o on the edges should neaten things up. Hoping to face the sides with 1mm matt black plastic sheet. Here's a few more pictures.

Looking at these photos of your layout takes me back to when I was putting Robins Run together. There are several similarities between your layout and parts of Robins Run.

AS for trees, see my thread on DIY trees for inspiration.... viewtopic.php?f=12&t=32

Some exquisite scenic modelling. Just shows what can be got into small spaces.
Lovely.

Cheers,

Thanks Doug, Inspired by this. I'll certainly have a go at making some trees. Now researching for designs for second model to fit in a small leather suitcase (625 x 375 x 180mm ) slightly larger than this one. I'm up for suggestions. Thanks everyone for you positive comments and support so far, it's been very helpful.

Cheers. J.
