Thanks Si.

Some more bushes and trees added and grass done on the next part. Doing some scenery stuff is more fun on this moment for me then building the orecars, so that project has to wait for a while.

A slowly progress, but it's still fun. Some bushes / litlle trees placed and done some extra groundfoam and turf to simulate litlle plants and moos.




Need some more bushes and trees in this area.


Close-up shot of the moos (fine turf) and little vegetation (groundfoam).


Another close-up.


Last an overall view of the "green" area.

Trees look very good but the grass work is exceptional!!

Now that youve added the greenery the rock color seems kinda bright...some grey washes might help...Might just be lighting too hard to tell sometimes with Photos :)

Thanks Todd.

I think the colors on the photo's are pretty close to the real thing. They are indeed a bit bright. I've already done some east indian ink washes. Maybe I need to do one or two more. But I don't want the colors to dark either. Hmmm L: , we'll see.

Time for an update. Finished the first area with greenery. Also made a start with the next part, the mining area. Still a lot to do overthere.

Made some progress today with the grasses in the mining area. Also the ramp for the orecars is in place. It only needs some new paint on some spots. The metal chute to the orebin is not working ate the moment. The first part closest to the track is almost flat, the stone just fall on it and don't roll to the bin. I need to make a new one.

Some progress shots:

That looks really good Alwin. I particularly like the excellent perspective effect that you have made between the "real" scenery & the mountain back-scene - you cannot see the join between the two. Great grass effect. Nice truss bridge. The rock colour is perhaps slightly too bright but not untypical of a non-granite heavily mineralised mining district.

All in only about 1 year !!

Thanks Michael.
The rock colour is indeed a bit bright. I've tried to soften it a bit with an extra east-indian ink wash but I can barely see the result. I don't want to ruin everything with a too heavy wash so I keep it this way.

Maybe you're not the quickest modeller but me neither. The grass stuff is going quick, the bushes and trees take a bit more time.
As long as we are having fun it doesn't matter.

Not much done on the layout lately. But I made a few stuff for the mining area. An wheelbarrow with a spoked wheel and some old and broken strut wood.

Photo's with a ruler for the size.

The next one done. This time with a drum to get leaking water out of the mine. Even more rust then ont the wheelbarrow.
Design of the "drum truck" is not completely right. The prototype has a kind of free swinging arm to a plate with a standing edge under the drum (you can see the edge on my model). The drum is standing loose on that plate.

The model is about 1" long.
