Being on page 100 of the beginning thread I start a new and blank one for all that's coming up in my modeling adventures.
Would like to thank you all for the support in the last 1 and a half year. With over 120.000 views in the 2 threads I have on this forum I'm really honoured and makes me feel I'm on the right track.
Working on an advanced trackplan with all the additions I have in mind I will post it in short time..
Thank you all my RRL friends !!

Martin, I totally forgot about this project. You certainly have a lot of irons in the fire.
milocomarty Posted - 07/27/2014 : 8:19:23 PM
Made a start on the first layer of green, after spoiling a cup of glue om the layout I had to wait a couple of hours. But my first layer is in. Gently dab some glue over the groundcover and added a light coat of WS burned grass, this is one of the colors I like and not mix. It represents the mosses underneath the grass and I always make shure there are still pieces of groundcover uncovered, let the earth shimmer through...

milocomarty Posted - 07/24/2014 : 7:37:43 PM
Thanks Ted !

Nearly done with groundcover, added several coats of paint, mostly dabbed and drybrushed sticking to the 4 RAL colors. Painted the retaining walls to, done with artist acrylics, just a few colors, most used the light and dark titanium buffs, a little redish orange, burned and natural umber, raw sienna and some redish napels yellow..
Just a couple of spts to do and greens are on the way..

gonna drink a couple of beers with a friend this friday, workshops treebuilding on sunday....guess modeling on saturday...

If I may say, the amount of work and time you have contributed to the layout is more than commendable. The colors are fantastic. The rocks, stones and the lay of terrain is just simply tremendous. Your work, Demonstrates the old saying; (You reap what you sou).
Congratulations on such an OUTSTANDING job!........
milocomarty Posted - 07/24/2014 : 3:15:13 PM
Thanks Joe ! And your right the road is beside the track, although a bit small but I figured the was already a road before the RR came...
JoebTX Posted - 07/24/2014 : 1:07:21 PM
That is starting to look good. I guess the road goes right along with the tracks?

milocomarty Posted - 07/22/2014 : 4:34:36 PM
More details added, couple of stone walls carved out of foam...well used a soft graphite pencil for the job and just draw the lines, most groundcover is in and ready for a second coat of paint. Most track and ballast is painted...

milocomarty Posted - 07/19/2014 : 7:53:40 PM
You can pick nits anytime Rick

Couple of quickies, worked on retaining walls, ballast and groundcover...

Rick Posted - 07/19/2014 : 10:10:34 AM
Very nice Martin.
And I don't see any nits to pick.
milocomarty Posted - 07/19/2014 : 07:39:15 AM
Thanks guys !! Temps in the WS still 28C..82.4F outside 33C or 91.4F....changed workclothes for shorts and wide shirts..
Geezer Posted - 07/19/2014 : 05:25:46 AM
Looking good Marty -
I agree with Frederic on the track work.
Frederic Testard Posted - 07/19/2014 : 04:20:04 AM
A very nicely flowing curve through the new rocks.
thtroll Posted - 07/18/2014 : 11:46:56 PM
Martin, been following along and enjoying the progress pics. I too love your rock work. Going to have to keep practicing to get to your level of mastery.
milocomarty Posted - 07/18/2014 : 6:10:38 PM
Slow but steady most blackbrown parts start to disappear, more groundcover and ballast...

still 28 degrees C in the workshop I'll think I take the beer in the garden..
milocomarty Posted - 07/17/2014 : 5:34:44 PM
