Apparently the original wasn't that good & breaks easily !


Seems to be a fake,

as I see neither locomotives nor dump cars on it.

I have done the basic painting of the buildings.

The next step is the upper tracks, then the sand.

Franck,

This is amazing work, as always.

I love the stone walls, especially.

I fix all the walls with PVA glue, screws and tilling mortar.

I paint the ground with a sand tone paint before applying true sand.

Like the overall look of the scene,

looking forward to more of your work.


The stonework is very neat,

will need to try laying out some again.
