As Pete said Richard, those rock faces are quite something.

I'm guessing they're Woodland Scenics moulds but the painting is absolutely fantastic !!

Not sure if I've asked before but were/are you an artist, draftsman, architect or some other "artistic" wizard.  Your modelling is amazing and something we could all learn from.  Do you fancy writing a book ?   :roll:

Thanks all; glad you like it. The rock faces are WS and simply painted with two or three washes of black grey and brown. the top two intermingled a bit, IIR .Not an artist by any means - dabbled a bit when younger but wasn't willing to put in the effort to get a satisfactory result, and didn't get any creative buzz from it. I do work with colour I suppose, being a picture framer and sold artists materials for years, but I've always found it easier to get results from modelling the prototype, as you just copy what's there..... ;-) Seriously though, I amassed a large collection of colour images of my modelled areas which helped enormously. This is something that is important when creating a real location and also working from start to finish under the same lighting. Everything is built and photographed in 6500K full spectrum daylight tubes which gives an accurate colour rendition.

That's the tubes I use to light my layout.
