  7. Yes you did well to do that...! I still haven't received it in the post....!! For any future show's he may appear at I'd strongly recommend people avoid him.
  8. Latest update - continuing work on the scenery a horse field added (whitebelle ... its a bit like black beauty in name, which was a horse... ) and someone hanging out their washing. Nearly finished now - just some more trees to plant and an awkward empty space in the middle to fill in.
  9. The finished tunnel and crossing combo - with Bertie bus waiting for Thomas.
  10. creating a path for the footbridge then adding weeds to soften the landscape mat uniformness...!
  11. And... here is how we got to the photo above... 1 - firstly ballast spreading.: 2. Glue dribbling... 3. Waiting for glue to dry... 4. Making the tunnel portals.. 5. and hiding the buffer...
  12. It's been awhile - 6 weeks since last post here is the latest look ... scenery is mostly done a few trees still to place, the town buildings are placed, the tunnel finished and next it's to install working signals one is in to the left of the station one to go and switches are still loose too. on the hill top will be a field of horses.

  14. This shows the current overall view - one board is further on than the other (it splits into two 4x2 boards) however trains are running! Total time spent: 9 hours.... Roughly: 1 hour baseboard construction. 1 hour track planning and marking. 2 hours painting the board and sky back scene. 2 hours on installing the track and electrics. 1 hour on landscape mat fitting. 30 minutes on installing the controllers. 1 hour on making the tunnel. 30 minutes fixing down the first set of buildings.
  15. Another week (and a bit) here is our latest progress... So, a bit of cheating by using a landscape mat for the large green areas, its very uniform and will be subsequently toned down with scatter. Lots of glue was spread, matt rolled out and cut to fit the areas then power controllers (basic Hornby ones) were installed. Then moved onto making the tunnel using lots of polystyrene!
