Here's how the wide side is looking now . . .



What I'm going for now is a low profile to make it easier to transport - hence the chopped down trees.

Yes.  They are rabbit holes.



When the track is ballasted, I'm going to put some grasses on the edge of the ballast rocks and at that time I'll add a bit around the fallen trees.

It's not supposed to look too interesting, as the loco will be the centre of attention.

Brilliant result - very much like the 'iron ore' scatter near the edge.

Have you put a new film in the camera Max - it's changed colour ............?:shock:

Looks brilliant with that fallen.   The "edges" on the bunkers aren't as hard as before and the colours are subdued - is the orange still underneath ?

I too like the "tallus" in the foreground.  Some of that would go well up near the track.

Love the rabbit holes .....:thumbsa nice touch for an Aussie  :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Thanks, Peter.  The 'dirt' is a different colour.  It's crushed and sieved dolomite.  It's got a nice, nondescript colour to it.

I still haven't treated the zone near where the ballast will be, so that top inch or so is still plain.

The orange burnt sienna is still underneath.  To the naked eye, it's just visible in places.

I'm working my way up the narrow side now.  It's going to be different because it's so steep.

OK  Narrow side . . .



. . . a little cameo of an abandoned fireplace . . .



Not too much distraction.  I love those little tufts, now I've got my special tool.  :cool:

Ballasting next.  Then the grasses.

Soon I'll be back to programming!  :thumbs

You don't get away that easily !!!  What's this "special tool" all about then ?

You're getting too darned good at this Mr Wright.  Time to take a break I think to give the rest of us a chance to catch up .............

I'll be asking for lessons just as soon as I get back from UK. :cheers

Late as usual I am afraid. Looks really good Max.....it will set the loco off a treat. I do like the understated treatment....just enough to catch the eye but not too much that will draw attention from the loco.............just like a well designed picture frame:thumbs

I also got caught by the LRF option

Thanks for the kind words, guys.  The special tool was one I came across in an old scenery book, Peter.



I made it from one of those large pins with the plastic ball on the head.  They are about 40 mm long.  Then I cut another one in half and bent it in half and soldered it on to the first one.

The idea is that you drill a hole in the scenery (I'm using a 1/8" drill), and fill the hole with PVA glue.  Then you push the two prongs down the hole, which causes the bundle to fold in half as you push it home.  When you withdraw the pin, the bundle closes together and the result looks like a "reedy" plant.

I just sprinkle on some Woodland Scenics Fine Turf - Earth, which sticks to the extra glue around the hole and looks like the butt of the plant.

Thanks Max - have you described that elsewhere ?  I've read about it somewhere but can't remember where  :roll:

It seems to work extremely well. :thumbs

OK.  Here's a few snaps.  Bear in mind that the loco hasn't been detailed and the camera was on full auto.









A few different croppings.  The histogram is all wrong, but you can get an idea.
