Hi guys, long time no see!

Still keeping my hand in, thought you might like to see my latest completed project. Approx 18" square, 6.5mm gauge Marklin track.










































Hope everyone is doing well!

Phil

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

Looks really good. I like the darker shade to the photo light.

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?

Herb

Thanks guys!

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?
