Don't eat yellow snow!
Not only has it snowed across most of the country but it appears to have snowed over Teasel bay as well.



Building up the scenic area with scrap extruded polystyrene.  



I have found it quite nice to work with, a little dusty but I do most of the cutting outside where it is well ventilated.



First picture showing the how the upper layer will look cutting though the country side.  The top layer will run trains from 90's-now.  The track used are old bits of flexi-track I use to check before committing with the new Peco Code75.

Been too cold to go out in the garage in the past week so I've been doing some painting indoors.  
I started by spraying the standard Hornby footbridge base with a matt black.


The plastic is quite shiny and unlikely for enamel to hold, I found some of my wife's chalk paint.  It holds very nicely and gives the plastic a bit of bulk which I think reflects a painted iron look.



The handrails and main braces I used Humbrol 100 (red brown).  All that I need to do now is to dull up the walkway to show ware and add some rust powder.



The far side of the bridge will be embedded inside the hillside so doesn't need painting at the moment.  I am quite happy with how this turned out.

I have moulded an extra bit of cliff to test some painting techniques.  I washed the plaster with a watered down dark grey mix.



I brushed over with a light grey and then some white.



I am happy with the grey and the light grey brush but I think I need to improve the white dusting as it looks a little heavy.  Any hints or suggestions would be greatly received  :lol:

A small update to show progress on Teasel Bay.  As you can see I've started painting the cutting face, so far with a dark base.  Next will be a lighter gray/brown over the outcrops.


I've lightly weathered the track and started ballasting.  Here you can see a Adams Radial LSWR 415 class 488 in the distance approaching the tunnel.
