Lots on new stuff on the Monarch Branch over the past few weeks. The weather has been all over the shop here in Melbourne when its in the mid 20C's its okay to work in the garage however this past week has been horrible in the 40C on a few days and really bad bush fires in almost every state of Australia. Hundreds of thousands of Hectares burned of bush and almost 1000 homes destroyed. The really sad part is that several people have died in these terrible fires.
That said I have made steady progress so here are a few images to keep up to date.
Backdrop painting completed and scenery started at Cimarron.
I added an additional track for the coal loading on the left so it did not foul the stock yard. This is my first effort at using static grass at Cimarron. I am very happy with the look it gives to the scenery by adding height.
|The water tank pump house is scratch built.|
I hope you all have a Happy New Year in 2020.
