A further update on the layout

I have added a rock face to it as it never really had a decent looking one
Made it using gypsum and foil, worked like a charm

I’ve given the first coat of paint and texture to the rock face here are the results ( needs a coat of mat as well )

also I have added a oo gauge tree in the background of the mountain , would it be a good idea to add it there for depth???

Those coal loads look very good, how did you do them?

Looking good Zeno. What about adding bits of scatter between rocks and perhaps a range of other subtle colours to break up the grey.

Nothing looks like coal better than coal.

Wish I still lived in our old house in N. London. We had a coal cellar and there was always plenty of small bits of the stuff. But that was before I took up the hobby. Can't find it it round here for love nor money LOL.

I put out an appeal to the members of the Trust I’m part of. One member had some.

The last lump I had was picked up at Didcot years ago..

Can't you just buy a bag of coal down the garage or supermarket..? TW the garage off the A10 at Bexwell sells it.
