Well, that was quick!
Because we use acrylic paint on the buildings (as preferred by the Artistic Director) rather than the enamels that we use on the trains, the process is a lot swifter due to the difference in the drying times.
We still have to complete the landscaping around the barn which is just resting on its plot in the photos here.
Once it has a few trees camouflaging its position I think it will blend into the scene nicely.
So that's one of the big outstanding jobs ticked off, now I really need to get on with those remaining houses..
