ok Not much happening here. I added some height to a feature tree on my layout, using twigs and coconut fibres, plus Woodland Scenics foliage.

Close-up with still-wet glue.
The finished tree.
The root system, made with copper wire and DAS modelling clay.

Excellent tree - I just don't have the patience for that - although I can spend hours with wiring, relays & such.

Just as well I have a good mate who does the scenery then !

Currently on the bench I have a Lima HO class 33 for repaint, and an assortment of wagons in for unification of couplings. Other than that it's fairly clear at present.

Regards

John

I'm a complete no-hoper with most aspects of this great hobby - I wouldn't recognise a DMU if it ran over me and as for electrics - if I get my torch batteries in the right way around it's cause for celebration.
How big will the layout be Neil?

It will be 15 feet long and 7-6 foot wide. This was the original plan I based it on. I have now moved the turntable bit to the centre so it's been modified quite a bit since.



This is the bit I'm building at the moment.



I have been charting my stage by stage development on my blog which is at the link below.

I will sourt out some pics of the gun wagons for the armourd train when thier finished. This is bit of a hard project as there are only a few photos of the train in excistence becouse of the war. I have bein lent some real photographs by a friend hwo was railway guard and in the home guard.

I visited your blog, Neil - fascinating! I love the harbour. I'll be back.
I really like the idea of the multi-national layout, too. I hope it turns out well. Mine is a mix, too. As much as I like the look of UK steam, I didn't want to miss out on US diesels. It's on my old tabletennis table [9x5ft] half UK and half US separated lenghtwise by a scenic backdrop, but with continuous running through both halves.

QUOTE (dbclass50 @ 24 Dec 2006, 19:04) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Very much like the look of that Neil, especially the "round the world" aspect. Be great to get regular updates on progress.
I got the idea from an article in Model Railroader, October I think. It was about how to maximise what you get from your layout in a samll space. I really wanted UK, US and German scenes. I wont be doing much today or tommorow us Christmas has interupted progress.
