    Tony,

    This layout is really coming together. You have a lot in such a small area. Looks amazing. I need to update my pics and the work I've done lately but it can't compare to Mrs. Wombat's.

    Not much has been done recently; however, I did manage to get the road from the middle tier to the lower tier in along with a rail crossing of sorts:

    Thanks Olie it is getting there. Bottom line is, I have till Sunday night to finish it or the bulk of it. It is going to be a busy few days.

    Er, what happens if you don't, Tony? You get banished from the wombat colony, or something worse?

    Honestly, I don't want to think about it; however, I think I can buy some time by getting her Lit Xmas Tree in (especially) and some of the details on it like her dock and canoers

    Thank you and so far she is happy with it, at least that is what she is saying out loud. Under her breathe might be a little different

    Picked up some more JTT Elite trees and Bass wood for the grade crossing from Hobby Lobby.

    Started putting down the "Gravel Road" (WS Fine Grey) from the middle tier to where it meets the bitumen (black top) just before the railway crossing:



    The JTT Trees I got as well:

    Got both lights on the Lake put in as well as the Depot Parking Lot:









    Also put the "highlight powder", or whatever it is called, on the gravel road. Frankly, I wouldn't recommend the WS Gravel for N Scale, it is too "chunky" which you can possibly see in the pics. The other negetive is their so called Grey is (as can be seen) brown. I'll probably give it a very light wash with indian ink and water to give it the grayish look I was wanting. At the end of the day though, I can't do anything with it - it has to stay but I think can be improved on.

    Looking at the pics, the "clean up and touch up" work is going to take the longest

    Thank you and well, lets just say that it is "BRIGHT", but she likes lights so I think it looks fairly decent. I still have three more to put in, one for the car park, the depot light and the final one for the rail crossing/intersection.

    As soon as I can figure out how to take some "decent" low light pictures without it looking grainy, I'll post them. Think I might have to adjust my ISO back down to 100 and set the aperture slower.
    Cheers Tony

    The gap between completed, other than details, and "0 hour" is getting closer together. Have finished putting in the base ground cover on the lower level and connected the road to the parking lot which has room for a whole four, maybe 5, vehicles:

    You are making great progress Tony and looks like you will make zero hour.

    Have a great Christmas!

    Have "tried" to take some low light shots ... they didn't turn out all that well but might give you an idea of how looks lit up:

    Well, it's winter time, so there might not be much to see ... Buuut, come summer, those lights near the lake, well, that'll be skinning dipping season, sooo, oh, yeah, this is a G rated website. Never mind...

    Thanks Moose, but the er skinny dippin' is a bit further up the lake where it isn't so public

    In the meantime though, got the intersection/rail crossing light in and, if I don't say so myself, that one actually looks good:







    The Depot Platform Light, Depot Parking Lot Light and Xmas Tree are yet to be wire in. That'll be a job for tomorrow.

    That being said, I have been touching up the ground cover, adding more layers to fully cover the plaster and get rid of those little white spots. Building up the ground cover is part and parcel anyway but need to get a bot more variety for contrast.

    My intention was to use the Static Grass; however, I forgot about having to get the applicator "close" to the ground and put everything in. I didn't want to mess anything up or have to remove buildings so (regrettably) have to use the "normal stuff".
