New cutting and loco depot landscaping

DSCF0734DSCF0722DSCF0717Since the last update on the cutting module both it and  the corner module have been redone with static grass from www.allscalesmodels.com I must mention them because the range of grass and plants as well as the  postal service is excellent.I used a static applicator on the two modules  from aussiescenics via Ebay which worked very well once you get the hang of it, practice beforehand.After the grass has dried I sprayed diluted Testors Dullcote with the airbrush to remove a sheen thats present under lights.Thats all for now and happy modelling.

  2. Looks really good Peter. I love the turntable and coal stage. Can’t wait to see more. What did you use for the fencing?

      Hi Tom. The timber fence posts are 6insx8ins scale timber cut to a length of 8 scale feet then soaked in Woodlands scenics c1219 slate gray stain and left to dry.The timber posts are 4ft6ins out of the ground. The risers between the timber posts are 020ins piano wire cut to 25mm lengths then sprayed with etch black and hammered into the ground at 4ft6ins spacings between the timber posts and are 3ft6ins high.I hope that answeres your question.Regards Peter.
