Over the past 20 years I have had a few loft based layouts for the kids .. wink.gif and have painted roads etc and put Hornby buildings up but have never had a go at putting scenery down on a layout and as my main layout is no more ( being re planned ) I decided I needed a section of track to test loco's on and something to have a go at scenery on so off I went to see what bits I had that I was not going to use on my main layout and this is what I came up with I still have quite a bit to finish off :-

[attachment=2703:2_The_Base.jpg]

Used some old loft foam for this :-

[attachment=2707:6_The_Tunnels.jpg]

[attachment=2708:7_Masts.jpg]

Got this from Hattons cheap...

[attachment=2709:8_The_Hut.jpg]

This stuff is realy good and fast to use :-)

[attachment=2710:9_Mod_Rock.jpg]

Messed about with paint and artex to try and get a rough mud looking paint....

[attachment=2711:10_Mud.JPG][attachment=2712:11_Missed_A_Bit.JPG]

Used scatter as a base then put some long grass on later

[attachment=2713:12_The_Green_Stuff.JPG]

Thes are from wills I thought they might add something ...

[attachment=2714:13_Line_...e_Detail.jpg]

Old Hornby Fence needs weathering

[attachment=2715:14_The_Fence.JPG]

Found these in a box so stuck them together

[attachment=2716:15_Boxes.JPG]

I have seen this as some of the shows ive been to so thought I would add some and see what it looked like

[attachment=2717:16_Orange_Pipe.JPG]

[attachment=2718:17_Lights...JPG]

[attachment=2719:18_The_Grey_Stuff.JPG]

[attachment=2720:19_From_..._Another.JPG]

Just wanted to see what it would look like with a loco on it :-)

[attachment=2721:20_The_First_Train.JPG]

I added a back scene

[attachment=2722:21_I_Wan...e_A_Tree.JPG]


Trees are from evil bay and dont look to bad for cheap ones...


I need to finish off a few bits and have a go at weathering next :-)

Hi Anthony,
That looks good. Like the weathered 47 too.

What did you use for the longer grass, that looks lots better than the scatter.

Thanks
Simon

Looks good so far - does the brown bit on the embankment represent earth or rock ? From the shape and the gradient it presumaby is rock ?

Looks good to my non-expert eyes. Pity the little dude in orange overalls in the penultimate photo seems to have gone rigid with fear and fallen over - lol

Looking good, thumbsup.gif
the back scene sure does make a difference.
I also like the long grass, not sure if we can get that here in Tassie.
keep up the good work.

cheers Trish

Looks really good so far Anthony thumbsup.gif I do like the way the back scene blends in, do you intend to weather the rails and ballast?
Regards Mike
