This is all stunningly brilliant. Well done.

Don't know if you're interested but I have some moulds for 6mil scatter bits, tyres, rubbish, mattresses, etc which you can see here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPEqvEFJX-Y

Also have some rubble piles. PM me if any of it licks your paintbrush... ;)

You're a better man than I for fiddling around with such small details.

That's a surprising level of quality for the scale which I hadn't expected. How are you doing the table? Going for a standard mat, or will you be scratchbuilding a textured surface?

Making little things like fencing would be nice, but again, hellish from my perspective (I've been dabbling with a small scale project myself recently, and haven't brought myself to making any architectural details for that reason). :)

Phil, I''ll try and send you a PM later today

Wyrm...atm just a 4x4 foot table planned, most likely a mat, not possible to store boards here. All the scenics bits will be based up for ease of storage. Fencing etc we will see, I have a big bag of railroad scraps somewhere, but this farm won't have anything like that other then rows of poplars as windbreakers (and in the past, money for the farmers daughter marriage). But we are a long way off from getting it all done, and I'm in no hurry.

Wow, this thread is a treat. Love it.

It's not big, or clever, but let's do it anyway

Slowly working on the building parts of the farm, picked up the vehicle shed today, basecoated it and went to town with washes, and when it has fully tried tomorrow I can put on the first coat of varnish.
