I know it's only been a week since my last confession, but I've reached the point when I can transit onto the next board. Progress this weekend has seen the point rodding installed to boards 3 and 4, board 3 finished and board 5 duly dragged down ready to start.
I still need to break up and detail the large strawberry patch as it's a little too uniform at the moment. Probably needs more scenic variation.
This is where it gets interesting.
I've mocked up the permanent way hut; an odd little building with a couple of lean to extensions. It may be a tad on the low side but that's why I build mock ups first. Board 5 has the goods shed and signal box, not to mention the platform ends and the station master's house. It's going to be back on the Coreldraw over the festive period between the odd mince pie to draw up the windows, bargeboards and other details I might need cutting or etching. All good practice before board 6 which is just the small matter of the train shed.
Point rodding installed.
Board 3 joins the first two on its runners. There'll be a few things to touch up here and there and the water works to add in the foreground obviously.
Board 5 along side and ready to start
