That is looking really good Alwin, especially the wheelbarrow & the wheelbarrow water carrier. I saw something like that in a UK museum of mining equipment years ago but I cannot remember how the barrel was emptied.

Thanks guys.

Michael: The photo I used as example is of a pour quality. But I think the barrel is not attached the the wheelbarrowframe.

I think you are correct Alwin. I seem to remember that the barrel was only locked into lifting position where the wheelbarrow handles narrowed together towards the wheel mounting.

Made some progress on the scenery. More green is in and I re-painted some rocks a bit.



The rock formation in the front is wich I repainted.

Time for an update. I didn't like the scenery on the first part, above the mine. So I took away the bigger trees and bushes and replaced them with some better looking ones. No trees anymore in this area, I think it looks better this way.
Also added some flowers.

I have to work on the area left of this but after that I can carry on.









And a bit a fake shot. The blurry tree in the foreground is just standing in a piece of foam, waiting to be planted somewhere on the layout. But I think it's a nice shot.

Have done some more work on the scenery.







A detail of the ground vegetation:


And an overview:



And a bonus. This is one of my first scratch-building projects which turned out well. It needs some update, the walls are a bit warped, some more details, but I think it is still usable.

Hi Alwin.

Gorgeous greenery as usual !

I like your 'fake' blurry tree shot...

...who says you can't do that; think HOLLYWOOD BABY !

The general store looks great.

I've had some 'wall warp' & boxcar-door warp before.

If the board-cladding is layed onto card or thin ply...

...priming both sides first, with dilute PVA glue, has worked for me.

Bit like only painting 1 side of wood things...

...can be BANANA TIME !

Totaly love the 'vastness' of your scenic-space...

...very 'real world'.

Ta ta fer now.

Cheers.

Si.
