Now, where were we?

Peters wife Dawn, wondered if the lady in red, who features in the Railway Roundup video about to cross in front of the train could be incorporated in the layout model, as her grandchildren were still in the area...

I tried my best in the short time I had.


Back to the scenic construct... I put up a temporary piece of ply as a backscene, which my Artistic Advisor noticed, and said you cant leave it like that, it ought to be painted - "I can do it now if you want"

Never look a gift horse in the mouth:




Back board loosely in place:





The blank area at the far right hand corner was crying out to be filled, so I made a model of 'Fron Felin' the farm that appears in the colour photo a few posts back. I made it in 4mm scale, painted it, put lights in it, and placed it in position.

'No good', 'Too Large', 'Out of proportion', 'Get rid of it...'
So doing as I was told (as you learn to do  with by experience) I made another, but this time in 3mm scale. Result met with guarded approval.




Here is a more cruel close-up:




Thats about it for the time being.

ATB
Shaun.

Nice work all round, Shaun.  :thumbs

Lucky to have your girl there.  Mine is a botanical/insect artist.  The scale is all wrong.  :lol:

This layout is stunning Shaun - and that "lady in red" is magnificent.  Her grandchildren must be thrilled. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

p.s. Does your "artistic advisor" feel like taking a holiday in south west France ......................? :roll::roll::roll::roll:

Remember watching one of Pete Waterman's videos a while back and he was saying one of the biggest problems is getting the perspective right.

So a large tree at the front of the layout wouldn't look the same size if it was at the back, but a train running past it would also have to look smaller or the tree would look too small compared to the train.

Bit of a balancing act, but I think you've got the balancing act about right there Shaun :thumbs

Thanks Ed.
Really it's my wife who pointed things out to me, like brushing the merest hint of pink on things to reflect the sky, and she continually moans on about layouts always being 'green and brown'... "Nature is not just green and brown!!! Open your eyes man!"
Yes dear... Mind you, she is right (usually)

The scenic board part of Login Station is now as good as finished, and Peter is coming tomorrow to pick it up, as he has had a request to show it at the weekend as part of an S4C (Welsh telly) article.

So here are the final few pics:





















Thanks to everybody who has followed this rather protracted build!

Shaun.
