Great photos ! :bg:



The vintage colourized & your colour and B&W look like the real deal.

Nice logs you got Doc.

They seem to have the right looking bark & feel to them.


I have my eyes on some Lime trees bordering my garden here.

They grow yearly long & straight pieces off the tops, could be good trestle timber.


I love your ground cover Doc.



:moose:



Si.
Thank you Si,
Do you get fruit off your lime trees too? That would be interesting.

The ground cover "dirt" is a mixture of real dirt and two shades of Scenic Express brown ground foam. Still to come are ground fine real leaves and Scenic Express brown "leaves" to model the leaves that fell in Autumn.

As I winterize everything my LP will need some coats and longer sleeves on their shirts.

Hi Doc. :wave:



No there isn't any fruit from the Lime trees.

I think they would have to move London to the Med. for that to happen. ;)



I was told they are Limes, but I am no expert, they are def. trees though ...

... sticking up outta the ground, with leaves on ! ;) ;)



Now the Walnut tree is another matter entirely.

Walnuts DO grow on it.

You may even find some, IF you can beat the hoarding local squirrels to them !!



:moose:



Si.



I always keep a look out in the garden for interesting wood & stuff.

Main problem is, I'm supposed to be interested in modelling a DESERT ! ;)

We'll see ... HUMBUG ! ... No sand either, just clay, chalk & flints !! :f:

About one year ago I began this project in an attempt to model a primitive backwoods logging operation set in 1910.

In August 2016 I had gotten this far:




It looked like a blue foam aircraft carrier.

Many months later we are at this scene of the"Woods" Side of the mini layout.:





There is much more to do including many more tree armatures, deadfall, leaves and then finally winterization with a little bit of snow and ice.

This mini layout has kept me busy for a year and because of its small size allowed me to really detail the scenery. One of the BIG plusses of a mini layout.

Thank you for looking and following along.

Doc Tom

P.S. I removed the vinyl photo backdrop from this side of the mini as it buckled and took my best shot at a painted backdrop.
