I started working on a little stone walled overlook.

I have also started working on the viaduct wall. Construction is blue foam cut and shaped and then coated with some joint compound.

Some progress on the tunnel

Ok well started on fixing up the last remaining hole in the scenery

I used a high density foam core board for the tunnel entrance - scribed with a pencil - coated in white glued and then sprinkled with sand for texture. Once dry paint grey and dry brush with a lighter grey and white.

I probably made the tunnel entrances bigger than they need to be... I didn't want the cars hitting them though

Been a while since your last post on this one I thought it was a dead duck, The bridge is coming along very nicely indeed.
Is the radius of the curve inside it likely to cause a problem with cars coming off or, can you hoon without issue or, will the momentum of a derailed car just conveniently slide out.
In any case I look forward to more updates.

I have been busy making cars - I think I discovered resin kits about the time of my last update :)

A new driver to the track might come unstuck - if anything you are more likely to come off once out of the tunnel as there is a slight camber there that can cause grief if you drive to fast.

The car is in the tunnel for about 1/2 of a second plus the track is more of a driving rather than racing track so if you loose it in the tunnel you will slide out most likely.

I'm with you there, I much prefer driving a car than racing one, it is nice to see a car fishtailing around corners and not have someone saying "you know fishtailing will slow you down" I know but it looks good and is fun.

Have you put any of your cars up that you have built I don't recall seeing any.

Grassed the knolls and added some trees - 97% done now - some fine detail bits such as a wooden fence and some cabins to add - that is if I stop getting distracted running cars :)
