On my workbench #5

More gentle progress – the first two buildings for the modules.  One a Walther’s plastic kit, the other a wood craftsman kit of an ice house.  The photograph is, of course, cruel!  A little touching up of the ice house is needed, and the storage shed looks a bit lurid, and a little weathering is needed.  I’ve tried to leave the doors as poorly painted and faded, but they look better to the eye than to the camera.  The trouble is, it takes a lot of skill to make something look badly painted, rather than just being badly painted.

Next project will be a Rix overbridge for one end of the layout.

And a couple of links to finish the month….

Scenic inspiration with “Drone image of train stuck in landslip in Highlands“.  Just the thing if you prefer scenery to operation….

And an update on the Ashford International Model Railway Excellence Centre.  Looks like it’s moving forward despite problems.  And interesting to see Jools Holland as a supporter, as well as Roger Daltrey.
