The last two days have been spent hand painting the recently laid ballast, sand and scatter. I will further weather with an airbrush to blend everything together at a later date. For the initial painting I prefer using Acrylic as the undercoat and after drying a coat of Enamel. The main colours I use are Railmatch ‘Sleeper Grime’, ‘Weathered Black’, ‘Matt Black’, ‘Matt White’ and ‘Matt Red’ . I can make and blend all the colours I need with these few colours.
All Buildings are now glued down, except the main engine shed which will remain loose to enable track cleaning.
