Slowly getting more done
After a rush to get more done on the Monarch Branch last month this month has started well with scenery work well underway in the town of Montrose.
With a good supply of ground cover from various manufactures along with several lots of fine ballast in a variety of grades it was time to do some ballasting and get this town well under way.
I needed to fill in all the gaps in the sub-roadbed cork then start with the ballasting.
I used several brands and shades of ballast including cinders to endevour to get the look I was after. Once this had dried a gave it a light airbrush of AK Interactive Soot to blend the ballast in a bit. Varieties of old fashioned Woodland Scenics foam was applied with some of their Blended turf in some areas and static grasses from a range of manufactures in others.
I already had a good supply of pine trees made many months ago when the guys were for a tree making day so next came production of Autumnal Aspens using Super Tree armatures and three shades of coloured fine foam.
The following images show where I am up to as of today.
Montrose is coming along nicely however there is still lots to do on the Left.
As usual thanks for stopping by.
