Himself has been busy painting the final two houses for the Oberon Woods scene.
On our rolling stock we usually use enamel paints but the Artistic Director taught him how to use acrylics to the best effect on the buildings.
One of the major advantages is the much faster drying time which explains why he's got them to this stage already.
I think he's done a terrific job with the stone cladding on the front of the bungalow, especially since he has challenges seeing his colours.
This house is the only one in the scene which is not painted white, although in our research I spotted there was one small area, above the conservatory, where there is still a wee patch poking through.
He has also been working on the neighbouring property which has had some of its landscaping features fixed to it, such as the sunken pathway to the front door and the driveway in front of the garage.
At the rear is an extensive area of decking.
I'm not sure (because he hasn't told me) whether he made this by laying individual strips of styrene or used an embossed styrene sheet.
It will be good to see them sitting in position on the layout and with all the rest of the gardens around them.
