Michael has been in touch again (if you missed his orginal post, it’s here).
Quite a few of you were keen to see his layout plan, and he’s obliged. Same goes for those hay stacks too.
“Al, Thanks for posting my work.
I have some comments on the questions I received.
The hay bales are from a kit I purchases on amazon but after iI saw it I could have done it with some common materials. The kit I bought had plastic pieces I painted with glue and sprinkled static grass on it. Very realist. If I were to do it again I would skip the plastic pieces and use balsa wood or small wooden dowels painted and the use the glue and static grass. probably cost the same.
I have include some pictures of the layout before I built the details.
It was the buildings that interested me most about Michael’s layout.
The houses are made from the ones you print out, and stick together (just click on the link at the bottom of this page to see them).
He’s done a great job on them and sent in these pics:
And lastly, Dangerous Dave has been in touch with his latest update.
“Hi Al , just uploaded the last in the series of My New Model Railway, and half way through there is a surprise visitor.
That’s all this time. Don’t forget the ebay cheat sheet which is going from strength to strength.
