Tiny tiny bridge painted

I painted my little brass footbridge today. It was only the 2nd time I've used my airbrush. Unfortunately some of the paint flaked off after spraying, I probably should have done 2 coats but I was worried about ruining it with too much paint. After a highlight and painting the steps and walkway it looks quite nice.


Just some random bits and bobs put together to see what it would be like.

Progress at last. Track laid.

I've laid all the track at last! Woo! Its all been glued down and some of the scenery level stuff has been put in too. Now I'm just using filler to mess with the edges of the track to make it look less like plasticy set track and more natural. The track is going to be painted anyway, so hopefully it won't look as hideous as it does now with bright white filler everywhere. 

I'm going to have to make a device to clean the track in the tunnels :S

One thing I'm struggling with at the moment and will have to fix somehow is the guitar case keeps flexing and warping. I'll have to put in cross beams or something. Its really awkward trying to get the baseboard of the layout.
