so the next mission was to add the landscaping, the way in which i have done this is with simple plaster bandage and das air dry clay. 
i screwed up newspaper and added this where i wanted the hills. next was to add the plaster bandage, as this is my daughters layout she was keen to get involved and she helped throughout this entire process. 





so next up was to add the base colour and ballast.

i have used normal poster paints mixed into a dirty brown colour. 

for the ballast i have used fine N gauge ballast mixed with ballast magic to secure in place. 





now for the fun of adding grass etc.

so for my next trick........ i had to get all the greenery done. i started off with ballast, i used n gauge fine ballast. once that was complete i then added static grass and i mixed two colours together as didnt want bright green. 
then i added bushes and other thicker scatter materials to build up the landscape. 



its almost a sin to cover the entire thing in snow. 

so i also had to build a tree but this tree had to be a christmas tree with lights in it.......... well what my little girl wants. 

so i built the tree using hanging basker liner, once the trunk and branches where completed and the whole thing sprayed brown i then added micro LED's for the lights and hid all the wires inside the trunk. i then added scatter material of conifer green to the tree. i used two colours of LED's to make that christmas feel. 




all in all im quite happy.

so over the last few days i have been busy, i wanted to get christmas eve finished. 
i have added snow, santa and a sleigh with rudolf. 

i then built a train, i used a 3d printed body in the style of a GWR railcar and added passengers and lights and a DCC chip. 

all in all im really happy with how this turned out and looking forward to taking it to peterborough show. 









and finally a video

It just needs a little sound that fits, Christmas music from a mechanical music box maybe?
