Finally the fuel guys came and installed the pump.

Servo got ram raided though in the meantime and the roller door took the brunt of it.

Thanks for the ego boost guys.
The camera makes it all look better than it really is.
Will start on the landscape surrounding the servo next so its not so much an island.
Got some ideas so will be interesting to see how they pan out.

Is that a fridge door on the left 'stall'??

Wait, hold the phone...
I think the right one is a two seater...

The one on the left is insulated so a bit cooler for those hotter days, while the right I think is a chuck and dump convenience.

Finally got some landscaping done.
Was starting with a lagoon, then thought jungle, then though invasion.
Something a bit different from the norm.
Rally Nam section.

Picture quality a bit poor I'll get my good camera onto it when I have finished it off.

Is that tin foil for the water?
Looks quite effective.

Invading forces seem to have over estimated the required machinery for the lagoon onslaught.

I think it was in Beverley Hills Cop, don't know which one though, that had a quote "you can never have too much fire power"

Yes it is foil, I used the dull side and think it gives just enough reflection.
I have previously painted and then poured in watered down PVA which also works well but foil gives a more natural reflection.
I thought of using foil when I was at a lake and really noticed that it doesn't matter how murky the water is, at an acute angle it still has a silvery colour to it.

Here are some better photos.

The rocks and dirt are sandstone from my place, glued in place then sprayed with hairspray (liberally and many coats)
Then brushed over with burnt umber and burnt sienna.

Posted Image
The planting at the corner have not been planted yet, I am waiting on more plants of varying varieties.

Posted Image
Overview, I am thinking this whole section will be jungle or the like.

Posted Image
This should look better once the PVC dries but shows the subtle reflection.

For cheap chinese model plants I am pretty happy with them, I bit of aging on the palms, I browned up the lower fronds, left the upper green and weathered the trunks on the light ones only and they came up OK.

Not a lot of progress on this track for a while, been busy on other projects.

What I have done over the past couple of months though is design and build a 50's style diner and created it using a 3D printer.
Not one piece is glued all slot and fit.

Finally got the electrical done today 3mm LED for the eaves and 5mm LED for the entry. They are all recessed to give a spot light effect.
The "neon lights" are EL Wire. $5 for 4m including adapter from China, easy enough to rewire but you do need the adapter for them as they convert from DC to AC, so if you are cutting them shorter you'll need another adapter for each section you want to reuse.
3 modes - Solid or 2 different flashing.
Totally recommend them.

I think the doors are a bit big, lets just say the diner is in Texas, otherwise I am pretty happy with it so far.
Will be using document cover clear protector sheets for the windows/door infill, also have to do the backdrop and roof, that'll just be painted/printed card.

This is it at 9v, will be 12v when all complete and fully hard wired.
