|The three flat boards|
I also did the same thing on the harbour board which has also had a slight modification added, namely a very small waterline dock and steps cut into the foam.
The pictures really speak for themselves; the flat boards have all been undercoated in a dark brown, followed by a dark green, then a lighter green and finally a much lighter sandy colour - all stippled on and/or dry-brushed.
I left more of the harbour area in browns as I thought it would be the area of most activity.
|Raggedy cut, easily fixed.|
The next step was to bevel down the two edges that would become the river banks , gunge them up with filler and paint to match the rest of the terrain boards.
Once more I decided to have more brown along the two river banks to make a greater contrast with the greener boards.
|Bevelled and gunged|

|At this width it's a stream really|
|But easily widened....|
|...or narrowed !|
Next time I'll be posting even more terrain, for both my pirates and Jimland project and I'll also have finished off some scenic items solely for my pirates but probably usable in many other genres.
Until next time, thanks for taking the time to visit and look around and of course, as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated..
