|An overall view of the next area of the layout to get the scenic treatment - between Williams Creek bridge and the south switch at Richmond.|
At this point this section of the layout look more like the surface of the moon than Vermont pastureland. Need to let the "dirt" dry before I start adding the grass …. tomorrow.
I had enough scenes to do the "finished" photos for the clinic, but needed some step-by-step pictures.
Combine all this together with a long holiday weekend and I'm on my third day of working on scenery. Last weekend I did some backdrop tweaks and worked on some trees.
Here's what I've done since Friday:
1. Painted, and repainted, the backdrop north of Williams Creek.
2. Finished carving and gap filling the landforms all the gaps filled from Randolph through to the south switch at Richmond.
3. Airbrushed the track at Randolph and north of Williams Creek.
4. Added the first "coat" to the scenery - leaf fall in the areas that will be forested and sifted earth for those areas that will get some form of "grass."
And, I even started assembling my clinic.
Lots still to do.
