Rolling like a rolly thing

Hello again :)

 

2 posts in as many weeks, this is unprecedented! I seem to be on a bit of a roll with the layout right now, I dont know why and it is a bit weird but I am not going to stop myself if its working. Weekends are good, they mean I have an opportunity to spend a little more time on things I enjoy doing and although the weather has been a pain I have still managed to get a few bits done...

While the station board is out it seemed to make sense and carry on working on it, the area around the station building needed the most attention. The about photo shows the beginnings of some ground cover where I glue down a covering of woodland scenics blended turf, I have found this as a good base to subsequent coverings.

This shows one of the gated entrances to the platform. The gates are etched from the scale link GWR spearpoint fencing etch. The static grass has just been applied.

The stationmasters garden and vegetable plot is also comming together now, he now even has his own garden shed.

Coming together nicely.  I like the subdued colours, really important in 2mm.

I had to look up your keyword 'sloath'   According to http://www.riotseason.com/REPOSELP023.htm " Sloath are a sickly, unwholesome, long & short-haired five piece from the south coast of England, brought together by a mutual desire to play the slowest, loudest and heaviest music possible using guitars, bass, drums and chant-like vocalisations."  Perhaps you're a fan.

 

Lovely modelling - I have to keep reminding myself that its 2mm.  Keep rolling :)

Thank you guys, I am trying my best! :)

Thanks Mark. I am striving to make everything look toned down, I agree with you saying its important in 2mm too. It makes everything blend together much better.

Thank you Mike. Im surprised that people pay attention to my 'tags', kudos to you for looking them up online too :) I will never disclose my reasoning behind them though :P

 

There has been a bit more progress today, I dont know if to do another blog post so soon or to wait a bit until a little more is done. Any preferences?
