Today I've been working on the base for the model using an old ratty picture frame and some foam board. The base needed a bit of sanding to get a smooth finish and I also filled in any dents and nicks. Then the edging was made using foam board and the void filled with more board and polystyrene.
The groundwork has just gone on and some tracks and sand were pressed into the setting plaster. I then used some cling film as a barrier then placed the model into position. Once it's all dry I'll prime then spray with gloss black before finishing off the groundwork. I have a couple of pine trees to add to the bank and will also make up a bit of fencing too.
