Drybrushing some light grey on top. The gray was made from French Ultramarine and white, giving a nice color.

Just a quick post to show that I have progressed to having a backscene for the layout. It's 15" high and greatly helps to enclose the layout. While cutting plywood we cut a few more bits to help frame in the scenery, retaining walls, buildings, and so forth. It's been a while, but I should be getting back to it now.

I've been working on framing in the retaining walls. I'm just about done with the wood cutting and things are fitting pretty well. It will be a while before I actually glue things in place though. It will be far easier and will produce better results to build each wall on it's own and then add it to the layout. I cut up my last two sheets of Slaters bricks today and fit them temporarily with double sided tape. I've ordered more brick sheet, but in the meantime I've got enough scraps to start detailing the area I've got.






Here are some pictures of actual retaining walls in the area.

After a month of being distracted by 2mmFS I have come back to the retaining wall. With more brick sheet in hand I was able to cut a correctly sized piece for bridge wall. Following on from that I have almost completed the detailing on the ramp wall. It was done by building up multiple layers of brick sheet and attaching them in what look to be the correct places. Still some bits left to do, then the other wall, but it's coming together.
