BRRRRRR! Makes me cold just looking at these pics. Great work, and to imagine it is Z or Nn3...impressive.

Snow is seldom modeled convincingly.
Usually far too coarse a material is used, especially in the smaller scales.
You have done a masterful job, and in such a small scale. Congratulations!
Still on the Island?

I am happy with the overall look. Herb, you are right, the grain size (Woodland Scenics) is much too large for 1:220, so I've aimed for the "wet" look, like the first thaw.
I have been told that marble powder is good for snow in the smaller scales, I will try some next time.
Sadly not still on the Isle of Man, back in Manchester with the family, but I should imagine I will move back at some point!

Can't say I'm much a fan of winter... but that still is some impressive modeling. I'm getting a chill just looking at it.
Now, where do I catch the boat to Jamaica?
