Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Lakebank mk2 scenery update

Progress has been made on the hill and banking at the back of the layout. Initially a framework was laid using card formers to produce the contours-‘eggboxing’.

This was then covered in a muslin stuck down using a standard glue gun;

This framework was then covered in strips of green paper towel soaked in and stuck of with diluted PVA. The strips were laid in a criss-cross fashion. Once dry it forms a firm shell on to which the various grass and vegetations can be stuck.

We have also been working on the road surface for the lane going over the plate girder bridge and up the hill.The base is card. This was painted with light earth coloured masonry paint. While still wet polyfilla was sieved onto the paint. When dry the excess was removed and then the surface is built up with washes of dilute acrylic paint.
