Work has commenced on the rockface in the corner no expense spared went outside to my work storage area and picked a few bits up hopefully will look fine when landscaped.

I’ve seen those shops on your previous layout I think, at the end of your narrow gauge line wasn’t it?

Very observant Marty yes you are correct the narrow gauge line station was just below them and the backdrop was beach and sea behind a promenade wall.

That beach was a cracker... so glad you’ve found a nice layout space to work in. Too cold for kayak fishing I guess too?

Not to cold for fishing but not been for at least 3 weeks as i had injured muscles around ribcage not sure what they are called and casting was aggravating it so i have deleberately not gone for a few weeks to allow it to heal hopefully.


Next phase completed some standard modroc type plaster cloth first with newspaper behind for shape then brush coated with some ready mix plaster i had in the shed.
To the right hand side it has not been done yet as i intend to make a roadbridge across the tracks
there so i would need to blend into that properly

It's progressing well Brian - and at one hecvk of a pace !!!

Having said that, you have some way to go with your retaining wall before you'll challenge the builder of the wall you used to explain what "Cornish Hedgestone" was ....................... :lol: :lol:

Sorry to hear you're off fishing because of muscle strain.  Did you do it fishing or is it just that casting is painful ?

Hi Peter
I think the original damage which caused the injury was work related but the action of casting arms above head the moving fast with force aggravated it.
It took me some time to realise i was not helping things by casting so i decided not to go for a few weeks and i do feel it is slowly getting better. Mind you feb and early March are probably the worse times for sea fishing here as winter species are moving out and summer species are still not in. so im not missing much.

Moved on a bit further i have based painted the plastered areas with burnt umber paint trouble is i have to wait for the paint to dry now.



Brian

Those corners with the sloping backdrop are tricky bu***rs, but you seem to have nailed it there, Brian.  The rock face and shops will be great, and the gentle curve will play a nice trick on the eye.  

Good job

Michael

   Having those structures make a big difference Michael i will use more backscene like  i have before behind it which is going to be tricky in the very corner but i will get around it. My other idea is behind the shops i may have some trees to try and obscure the full corner.

Good ideas.  I planned to have trees in my corner areas, but the slope is relatively steep so I didn't have the height available, but it looks like  you have little more room to play with.  However I have found that having some sort of scene focuses the eye, so that the back scene becomes less noticeable.  To be honest, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to have any sort of back scene where the roof sloped so I can happily live with it now. I look forward to seeing your finished solution.

Regards

Michael

Little bit more progress today got held up a bit as i had some non model railway stuff to sort out.

So i have affixed the backscene in the corner i knew it was going to be a bit of a faff and it was but i managed to achieve what i wanted it to do i have use tarmac in a lot of the area aswell as its a bit fluid on positions and what is finally going there at the moment.
The plan is for some specially shaped trees to go behind the shops to break the corner.



I have also placed a rough mock up of the road bridge i want to install so avoiding roads going nowhere the bridge will lead to goods yards areas
I will be typical of my builds i design as i build no spending days doing drawings

I like the tarmac Brian - very convincing.  We do  seem to model in a similar way - see what works and develop it, over pre-planning and sketching. The cottages/shops look great in that corner and I will be really interested to see your specially shaped trees, if that is the route you take...

I love the road bridge..... It is something I wrestle with - should everything lead somewhere, or is it ok just to model things in a given area?  I like the idea of everything tying in and leading to a place, but that is not always possible.  I will have to think about access to the hotel and the near by railway sidings and road transport...… more planning to do!

Regards

Michael

My poor main station building i built some years ago did rather suffer in the move it had pretty much fell to pieces so i have had to rebuild it and i am going to give it a bit of an upgrade.
Basically glued it back together at the moment.

It will look right at home on the new layout Brian. Glad it went back together again.

Looks like a fine repair - I would never have known.  What sort of upgrade are you planning?

Michael

Lots more bits to re affix to it yet not a major upgrade a repaint on some parts to chocolate and cream and all the original signs and posters are faded now so i will replace all of those and general tarting up.

I have canopies from the old layout that i may bash about to fit on some of these platforms but i will need to remove the waiting rooms i had and replace them with stone columns and pillars to fit them on these platforms.

Not going to go mad with the canopies as from experience to many makes it very restrictive to get at anything with the hand of god.

Sounds very tasty!   (That's a real plus when modelling GWR. )

It is Derek but not a cake wrapper used in making a cake i think it was one that was not up to scratch for putting a cake in so she put some bits from the garden lichen etc in it that she thought would be usefull to me mind you she has baked some date and walnut cakes and a cheesecake today.
