I made a bridge for the road to the tunnel.
3D printed sides and cardboard/wood subframe.
I've just graveled the road, so the bridge is a little wet ...





Sylvan car I also built recently.

Had some time to spare today.


I've painted part of the fascia, it looks so much better in black. 



Done a bit more rockwork as well. I use ordinary plaster in aluminum foil.



Then I found an oil pump on Thingiverse that I printed on my resin printer last night. I'll see if it can be motorized.



There's a lot more to do on the layout.

Painted the new rockwork today.
WS pigments.
I have now soaked the surface with diluted Modpodge so I can add the black/raw umber wash.

I built a Timberline kit I had in the stash.
The Hardware store:

An old kit with some small faults.


I had to true up the walls, as they were leaning and too wide.


The shop windows, built from wood strips and plastic castings were a challenge as the templates were wrong and the windows too wide to get a good fit....
But it turned out pretty good.
I added the awning as I didn't plan to have a lot of interior in this one.



Needs some details, then it's finished.
