Thanks bibster. Well I didn't get any painting done like I wanted because I got caught up in making gaurd rail! The overpass was lacking something. I saw a thread elsewhere here where everyone was talking about gaurd rail and how to make them. The one that intrigued me was where they were home made from old O gauge railroad track. Well I have a box of the stuff from when I was a kid so I got it out and set to making gaurd rail. I like it because it has a realistic look ans it was pretty simple to make.
Thanks redsn8k. A little more progress this evening. Got some painting done and a bit more guard rail. Starting to look more realistic now. Tomorrow I'll go get some grass flocking and try to get some trees and shrubbery made up.
Thanks guys. It's almost as fun doing the scenery as running the cars! I'm trying to be as creative with the photos as I am with the building. At least it's easy to look at and hopefully informative too.
Just for a bit of instructional info, to make the walls is pretty easy. Cut the foam to the desired size, carve with a sporting iron and paint. To secure it to the track and make it confirm to the curves I used T pins hammered into the wood in a line. Then cut the pins to the desired height, apply glue to the bottom of the foam and push it down over the pins. That way it stays right where it should to dry. It also adds a bit of strength in case an errant car hits it.
