More Urban Terrain

Although I've been unable to paint or do much these last few weeks I have managed to wield a three inch paint brush and to finish off some more terrain boards.
On the right can be seen my latest board and  it's obviously a car park.
The photograph shows it to be much brighter than it actually is (it's the fault of that rubbiush cameraman - again).
The board is 600mm x 600mm and the technique for making the whole thing is exactly the same as the previous boards I did.

The photograph on the left  shows the 3mm MDF with the cork tile pieces gluing in place, whilst the right-hand photo shows the masking tape applied for the road and parking-bay markings after the inital painting of the oarways and pavements. The road-width is the same as my previous road widths, namely 100mm as are the widths to the entrances/exits to the car park. The bays themselves are 100mm x 50mm. Pavements (sidewalks) are 50mm wide. As my eyesight has been deteriorating very rapidly these last couple of months I haven't been able to manage any of the "SLOW" signs or any directional arrows that might be expected on a terrain piece such as this, but hopefully this will be rectified in the new year.

So, a bit short this week and just in case I don't get time to get another blog done next week (there seems to be some sort of festivity going on), I'll take this opportunity to wish all my followers, lurkers and friends a very Merry Xmas.

Comments, as always,  are both welcomed and appreciated.

  3. That's a very nice looking car park board, Joe. It is something that is sadly lacking from WWG's TLX ground tiles.
