Layout progress, 2020-01-12 - adding some more ground area (part 2)
It only takes a few simple steps to transform the brilliant white foamboard into something more road/railway-like - simply paint with grey acrylic paint, and where ballast is required, shake ballast over the still-wet paint. It sticks very well, and any surplus can be shaken off onto a sheet of paper for recycling
The gap between the new road section and the running line still needs filling in, slightly more complex as the road runs 3mm higher than the baseboard level so a separate ballast strip will be required.
