Tom is moving right along with his latest diorama and has now applied some green, grey and brown water based paint to the scene to enhance the layout. Tom used readily available steel wool (normally used in the kitchen) to make some ground shrubs and tree foliage and sprayed this a dark green colour. Tom has also started to build the stagecoach and horses using self hardening modelling clay and I must admit the scene is really starting to come to life. Plenty more from Tom to come.
