Well, a while since any progress reports, but I am pleased to announce my latest extension offerings. The baseboard was constructed from uprisers spaced 10cm apart and braced inbetween. It now needs a fascia to tidy it up a bit. The landform was produced using my tried and tested method of gluing polystyrene blocks carved appropriately onto the uprisers and support bracing. This was then completely covered in Polycell (an indoor type of plaster). This morning saw the stream bed being painted in its initial colours. 'Sand' will then be put in place on the banks of the stream and eventually this will then be covered in 'Scenic Water' and rippled as necessary. Reeds will be added as well as a quayside wall. I'm currently just about to start experimenting with my own hand made paper for that job.
Apologies for the quality of the photo - my camera has had it and the light is bad in the room it is in.
