club this week was quite good fun, one of our G scale members, brought along a couple members of the G scale group to tryout their new "layout" they use for shows.
the K28 is HUGE and sounded very good (and loud)
in my smaller world, i added yet another layer of plaster, at one end, at the back its pretty much at the right hight. still need more at the front and back, then will work up the banks, then hopefuly soon, we can block the front and back, and poor in something to make the water.
and next time, not so much gray paint >_<

Andy have reminded Bevis to bring his cupboard key;is dropping over to me on the way to Club;so if he's forgotten can give him mine.is there anything else you need coz walking is still a challange so won't be at Club I'm afraid.So some pics to show progress would be appreciated.

Neat stuff Andy !

finaly some real progress.
first layer of plaster/tilegrout/pva glue mix for the river bed. this will be built up to form the river bed didnt want to go mad on thick on the first layer. quite pleased with the banks if i do say so myself.
another project of the clubs is to sort the storage in the shed. this was taken care of a couple weeks ago, with the last of the shelving put in last night
once we can start boxing up the big N gauge layout, we shall have more storage as well. as they will take less shelves.

Andy dug up half the garden(before the rain)so will sieve before Wednesday;can you bring brown paint so we can start hiding the MDF savanna.will also bring tiles for if we get that far.

oh the piercings are the least of their worries :D
now the show is over, things can return to normal (well, normal for us)
nick brought along two new cars he's been working on
all built on cheap/free british outline wagon chassis
and charle brought along a water tank in G scale, next to a large glue bottle for size ref
no photos of the layout, i stuck down the rest of platform planking, while nick choped and trimed the rest. the next major job for the club is to sort some shelving out for out outdoor shed, as we cant get into the shed at the moment for metal trestles/club member layouts.
once we have a club meeting where we dont spend half of it talking about our show/other club projects im sure we'll make far more progress.

Remember, WV (West Virginia) is a Northern state. They separated from Virginia during the war between the states.
I'm sure the girls would love an English gent, just not to sure how they would take to the piercings.

Andy now we can get back to the world of Perfection as the Show is over what do you want totackle next???Will bring the new wagons to Club ;can you bring your camera.I think we need to discuss landforms it's all a bit flat at the moment.

thanks chaps.justa quick start on these, will add some dry brushing then i have a little time.
neil, seems to be fairly simular in color
but i wasnt too fussed on the color on these, but the onein the bottom left seems to be a good match
but there also seems to be some stone buildings that are more gray then anything
||Posted - 06/15/2012 : 02:58:05 AM
The walls look good Andy.
As you say, the bricks are great. I wonder if a bi of dry brushing would bring out the stones more. Were the stones in Georgia quite homogeneous in colour or are there variations?
