Well, it's been close to 2 months since my last update, in that time I've been filling joins and screw holes and painting, painting, painting, painting.................you get the drift.
It would have been soooooooo much quicker if I had been able to paint the room prior to all the bits being dumped in there, but time did not afford that luxury.
I had this grand idea of hiring an airless spray gun and getting it painted in a day, but after talking to a few people I realised that whilst it would be quick, I would be committed for the duration of the hire. Eventually common sense and dollars won out and it was done with a brush and roller.
As it turned out I wasn't as ready as i thought I was.I wrapped up about half the layout and made a start.
To date I've done about half the back drop and almost all of the ceiling. Now that a large amount of the wood grain has been painted over it is really starting to look like a railroad.
In the picture below the snow storm has hit and only then did I realise that i needed some trim along the top of the wall.
After applying the quad at the top of the wall I realised that I'd better do something about the square corners where the walls met before I got to far. In the picture below laminex has been bent into the corners and painted blue.
And here is the layout unwrapped.
Thanks for dropping by and having a look
