“Alistair – These are pictures of my Mine and the rest so far. You don’t need to publish, just wanted to show you what that river runs through. All the rocks are natural, and the bridges are all hand built using 2 sizes of match sticks.
“Hi Alastair, when I need to make, dams , walls ,grades or the likes I use zonolite mixed with wallpaperpaste. Make a nice paste out of it, almost like a cake dough and apply it with a puttyknife. Also colour could be mixed in already. Works well and can be reused.Do nto forget to add water to it either to make the mix . Also when recycling the dry stuff after taking structure apart.
A model train tip that will save a lot of frustration: Leave room around your baseboard so you can reach track and rolling stock on top and wiring underneath. In a confined space make an operator hole in the baseboard to achieve the same object. I recently designed a new baseboard and discovered that I would not be able to reach the wiring.
And Thomas has just sent in another update too! Watch this space.
