This entry follows on from the previous one in the main. I installed the walling along the side of the shuttle lines. While this is off the shelf stuff it is quite good and looks ok. I've cut it to shape where required and applied various washes for effect.

I've also extended the road down the length of most of the wall.





This is one end of the shuttle line. I've finished off ballasting and installed some of the Wienert buffer stops. Bit of a goods terminus. Needs tidied up still.







I've also created roads which bisect the old town square. I'm not sure about road markings from this period so further research is required.



I added more trees to the area where the big one was installed so it isn't so obvious.

I created more flags and banners for the central square.





I've done a small isolated section as a test to see what I need to look out for in the main square. The main thing seems to be the gap between the buildings and the ground. I'm using polyfilla to close this and then weather it in.



I installed the old city wall and started weathering it in.



The square is now more of a, well - it actually is, a triangle. The church and town hall will sit in these positions. I've positioned the Trix maypole temporarily so you can see where I intend putting it. It's temporary so I can move it if it's not suitable. If anyone is aware of someone offering brass etchings to add to this please let me know. This is how it looks now.









These two buildings still have to be weathered in to the square.



I've had another batch of kits arrive to finish off this area. I still need street "furniture' like lights etc but will buy and install these as funds arise.

This is how it looks now from a couple of different perspectives.

That's looking really good clap.gif

The retaining wall along the shuttle line reminds me of the southern approach to Antwerp station:



You might be able to disguise the gap between the bottom of the buildings and the baseboard by making pavements from thin card or plastic card and recessing the buildings into them.

I look forward to further progress.

Thanks David, I'll hopefully get the joins sorted out first before starting on the next part. The retaining wall does look similar.

Regards

Neil
