Got myself a few packs of Martin Welberg Scenery products and I found them really good , and easy to use

Beautiful scenery work! I have 4 model railroads in 4 different scales in various stages of completion and you’re motivating me to get in the basement and get busy. You have a keen eye for realism my friend! Keep us updated!

I use Mark Welberg’s bushes and shrubs on my N Gauge layout too. Really good products.

Would like to see a few photos :thumbup: always in need of inspiration ..


I bought myself a statick king also from woodland scenic + a few bags of grass in different lengths, but I feel I can get more variation with the MW products as of now . But I need practise with the statick king first to really make up my mind

Here’s my layout; Parish End on my FaceBook page. I’m not sure how to post photos on here.


[url https://www.facebook.com/groups/242762646132554[/url]


It’s very much a WIP,- I’ve been working on it for the past 2 1/2 years, most of which was done during the first lockdown but has come on a bit since I took the photos.

It’s 9’ x 2’ and is basically a TMD, turntable and a couple of private sidings with lineside industry, with a small town along the right and at the back.

Thank you.
If I knuckled down, I could get it finished in about a week. But then again what could I do next layout wise. I’ve just about enough space to do an as highly detailed as I can box file layout.

That’s really good. Love the chickens.
My wife bought me for Christmas a couple of years ago PD Marsh’s N Gauge Cats and Dogs. The dogs aren’t too tiny, whereas the cats are really really tiny. Now, where’s my electron microscope?

Time for painting the Bridge

Ammo rust color paint set as base, use maskol as chipping medium . then ‘pale grey’ on top of that , and then rub off the maskol again to get some chipped effect. Seal with Ammo matt varnish. Some more weathering will go on later( dirt and dust)

All tracks are glued down and test run complete.

Now to get the wiring neat on the underside and carry on with scenery

Great progress and attention to detail. Love the scenery skills and smooth operation. Especially when when backing up through the turnouts.
