Great groundwork, well done.
I also like your idea to put the alufoil over the cardboard, that's one to remember!

Cheers
Claude

Cheers Martyn.

Thanks very much Claude. There is still lots of work to do on the groundwork. I tend to build it up in layers, going over the same area more than once. I find this way as the scenics progress I can get a nice balance throughout the whole thing. As for the corrugated barn to be honest with you I have never seen/done this before so it was a bit of a gamble, which seems to have paid off. One thing I will point out is that if anyone wants to try this method is that you don't need to be to precise with the cutting of the foil before it is applied. You can easily overlap the foil without any real trace, Especially once it is painted/weathered.

Thanks for looking. More soon

The Pine tree.

Basic wire armature, with "bark" applied


Seamoss has been added to represent the finer branches. This has been covered in a Pine coloured scatter.


In its position on the base.


Next step is to attempt a ruined farmhouse in the rear left hand corner.:unsure:


Thanks for looking. Now where did I put that Halftrack?

Thanks Adam - Still lots to do and tweak

Thanks Shawn - There is going to be a group of figures (3-4) at the rear right hand side, in front of the house. The sunbather may stay. He might even be covered over with a beach towel. :laugh:

As ever cheers for taking the time to look and comment.
