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 !!

Hi Marty, I really like the rock work both in the natural rock formations you have created and in the retaining wall you've carved. The greenery certainly helps add to the scene before all of the shrubs and other vegetation. Looking great!

Martin, I totally forgot about this project. You certainly have a lot of irons in the fire.

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...

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..

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!........

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...
||Posted - 07/24/2014 : 1:07:21 PM
That is starting to look good. I guess the road goes right along with the tracks?
