The hedge starting to progress.
A class 47 about to run light to Exeter.
I started off by teasing out some clumps of rubberised horse hair. These were then sprayed with brownish shades, such as burnt umber and sleeper grime. I then shaped some clumps into vaguely plant like shapes and super glued the stalks together. I dipped these clumps in ballast bond and covered with Noch leaves. I left these too dry, before giving them a good blast of cheap hairspray. Quick and satisfying! I have then started to drill some holes and place these into the based board. It needs a little more colour and variation, but a hedge is starting to creep along the first of the baseboards. Plans for this weekend are to extend this further and add a fence as well, to start to form the scene at the front of the layout. A few more pictures below.
