Gettin' a bit bored waiting for loco parts, so I thought I'd knock together a display stage for my new G scale loco.

It's amazing what you can make from odds and ends lying around in the workshop.  Anyway, after I made a start I thought I'd share the journey.

Here's the top . . .



and here's the underside . . .



As you can see, it has the LRF option.  Wendy thinks the paint colour is hideous, but it won't be seen when it's finished.

The white stuff is PVA glue which hasn't dried completely.  What else?

Oh, yes.  I painted the ties, clips and rail webs before I mounted it.  The bird wire is to hold the plaster.

Hopefully someone will come along with a more interesting thread soon.  :roll:

You're too hard on yourself, Peter.

You know what they say, "The only dumb question is the one you don't ask."    :lol:

I've made some cute little wooden bizzos to stop the loco from running off the edge of the world and painted it with hammer finish paint.




Now for the plaster.  Exciting, isn't it . . .  :shock:

Thanks, Pete.  The plastering should be more interesting.

:mutley  That's why I'm doing this one in the garage, Peter.

Here comes some paint . . .



Check out the floor, Peter.  :lol:

This colouring is supposed to represent the sub-strate, so if there any gaps in the sand they won't look white.

:hmm  still too much orange.

The olive colour looks great Max and, just slightly toned down, the orange would suggest "ore" seams or where plant life has decayed and been trapped......:roll:  You often get some amazing colours and contrasts in old rock (although I'd guess you already know that .......:oops:.) :cheers

So I repainted the sub-soil and rocks.  Remember this will be mostly covered by dirt, but where the rocks show through I want them to look like rocks.



There is an edge where the grey meets the light brown.



There are two curved vertical faces between the grey and red areas.

Should be interesting.

What are you going to do with the vertical faces Max - rocks ?

It's going to look good when you get some scrub on there.  You could have one of those giant cacti in the corner ............:roll::lol:

Yes, Peter.  Hopefully the 'rocks' will peep through in appropriate places.  ;-)
