Well it has been a long time between posts.
I am currently on holidays and thought it a good time to read some blogs and catch up and also reflect on my progress. I have really enjoyed every ones progress so much that it has given me the push to start updating my blog. Well at least try anyway.
I have been busy and have captured the progress, however I have just been uploading my results through Facebook.
In hindsight it was a lot quicker but I needed a more progressive approach that is easier to follow. I still struggle with blogger but prefer the ability to scroll through previous posts, adding to the inspiration.
November was my trip to the Armidale Convention and like usual had a blast, this convention is a fantastic way over a relaxed couple of days to catch up with like minded people and see what everyone has been up to. I can't speak highly enough of this type of interaction and as so have only missed one in all the years the convention has been run.
Anyway back to Wattle Flat and the reason you are reading this.....
Having finally sorted out the issues with the ballast siding it was time to commence scenery formwork.
Like the other parts of the layout my preferred option is to carve polystyrene foam as it is lightweight, easy to obtain and is easy to carve to suit the gullies and ridges I wanted. The down side is the mess and lots of it.
Well I am unable to insert pictures in this space for some reason.
Anyway with the mess cleaned up I am ready to move on to the next phase.
Hopefully the photos will come soon. Until next time............
