Another pair of trees from Polish supplier MBR arrived today
I do like a grubby D1000
I popped down to smugglers retreat to catch the Torbay Express expecting the usual warship, much to my surprise it had a double chimney castle on it!!
Western Enterprise along the sea wall,
Last batch of trees arrived today for this section, just the tunnel mouths needed to complete.
Jon has nearly completed the colour light gantry for the Coryton cliffs section. This is a 1930’s what if version of the gantries installed in the 80’s
A new commission under way, this will essentially be a photo plank to photograph finished models.
3’ x 1’ x 8” tall.
50mm thick polystyrene base cut through its centre, I placed the two halves back together and marked the track, I then cut either side of the track at an angle to give the impression that the railway Line has been built up. No flat earth here!
Covered first in filler then with decorfill, once dry I’ll PVA then fill again with decorfill.
I’ll make up some sides out of 3mm ply to give it a nice finish and paint in with black board paint.
This will be a simple scenic finish using mainly static grasses with a few bushes.
At Reading yesterday I collected another 3 coaches, 2 Mk1’s and a mk1 suburban. I also collected the signal gantry from Jon, seen here posed on smugglers retreat! It will go on the Coryton Cliffs section and will face the opposite way.
Track ballasting and weathering on the photo plank complete & the first pass of static grass.
More static grass today plus some bushes from the excellent Polak range.
A free prints photo book featuring Mainly mermaid Cove ( Dawlish ) with a last look at Severn Tunnel, this is a Christmas gift for my grandad
Add the backscene on permanently and we are done! Back to the sea wall after Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all,
I’ve ordered some more track ready for stage two of the Riviera line.
We will be at the Bristol show hopefully with the coryton cliff’s section in naked timber and polystyrene but with track in place and with smugglers retreat section fully finished.
Coryton Cliffs is under way
Steve,look forward to seeing you and Dawlish at the end of the month. I belive Rob is coming to you, so remind him of transport!
I love this thread Steve. Your work is fantastic.
Polystyrene all cut in place
Steve,don't finish it there will be nothing show the paying horde
I won’t, just track fixed and the polystyrene glued in place and sealed.
First two lengths of track glued in place, power feeds next then I can glue the polystyrene in place.
I had two sheets of slaters stone wall left so these have been glued in place as well.
The trees are just for placement they will be replaced by MBR trees.
