Now that's a question and a poignant one for me. Highclere has been work in progress for what seems an eternity, it has moved on sporadically, and has even nearly been binned in the past. Now I don't really do New Years resolutions but this year I have said to myself that its really time the layout took some sort of priority over my other modelling escapades. There are a couple of things comming up this year where the layout really needs to be in a better condition than it is now. Hopefully I can keep the momentum going, especially as my modelling has been a bit random recently.
So, this weekend seemed like a good opportunity to do something, I didn't have anything planned plus I was in the mood for a bit of scenic work. I enjoy scenics, its calming, its like listening to some nice chilled out music. I don't have to be precise or accurate, I can experiment and see what appears in front of me...
The stream was formed out of some air clay which was the painted in some Greeny / Browny acrylic paints and then some Gloss varnish was applied in several layers. Unfortunately as you can see the varnish has gone a bit white in patches though.
As you can see there is still more to do around this area with details to add and hedges amongst other things, including sorting out that varnish. The important thing though is I am happy with it, plus I have enjoyed myself too.
