Digging a ditch

Thank heavens for celebrities and their skating, it means I get an evening in the garage to continue with the construction of the new bit. I've roughly hacked and glued a pile of polystyrene foam into the shape of the other side of Lighthouse Hill and the estuary.

I'm quite pleased with the water course, next phase is to smooth it all over with plaster. Where it goes under the hill I will disguise with greenery, the bridge effectively hides it from one perspective and the buildings will do the same from the front.

The hill is rather cubist at the moment but will do for now, I will use my usual combination of newspaper and mod roc to smooth it out.

I'm going to do the basic plaster work next and then the track and electrics.
