I think all the plaster is now done, second board included. There are still lots of small gaps, but I will fill these with foam and filler. It means I can finally start on the trackwork. Just painting the gray ground for the track beds will be a big psychological boost. Took awhile to get here but I am happy with the end terraforming. It has given me quite natural rolling countryside with plenty of variation.



You can probably see the join between the hills of the two boards. Looks pretty chasm-like at the moment, but I am confident I can hide it away with scenery and still maintain the complete separate nature of the two. I know there are many varied means of joining boards and there are lots of advantages and disadvantages to each, but we'll give it a go and see where we end up.


I was a little concerned about how easy it would be to get the tunnel entrances right, but they have so far turned out nicely, just a bit of gap filling required around the edges
