I am a long time follower of your work and have used many of your tricks & tips in the book to help build my never-ending train project.
I love seeing all the different layouts you post from around the world.
My little space is in Rhode Island, USA.
Here is a sample for you to see. Happy Modeling!
My word, Bill. All I can say is I think I speak for everyone when I say, “More pics please!”
“What do dandelions, apples and oranges have in common?
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?
To make dandelions on your lawn, place a little yellow paint on a shallow dish. Dip a few bristles of your toothbrush into the paint. Now, run your finger gently along the bristles, and you will spray yellow paint in a random pattern of dandelions. Repeat this with white paint, and you have dandelions gone to seed.
I suggest you practice with water first to get the feel of the technique. Next, practice with paint on a hard surface to get your droplets the right size – thin the paint to get smaller droplets. You will probably find you need only a few bristles dipped gently in the paint.
If the paint is thin, it will give you smaller droplets. Thicker red paint splattered on a tree will give you apple size droplets. Now you can have an apple tree or an apple orchard.
Now add some wildflowers to your hillsides. Splatter a bit of mud on that truck on your dirt road. Where else can you use this technique? Hmm.
Keep on Training,

And finally, Dave has sent in the latest on his rebuild:
“Hi Al, just uploaded part 5 of my re build on the layout, a few tips and some trees I bought, made of plastic, but so real looking and very reasonably priced.
Still got to install more lights, and the bottom end of the layout to complete, Tonys still waiting for the all clear to open, also just added a short clip on the end of the Koi and garden.
A huge thanks to Will, Bill G, Carl and Dave. Really enjoyed today’s post.
That’s all for this time, folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here, if you want to stop dreaming, and start doing.
