A Module in a Week

Well, I was going to post some pictures of a module I started working on last Saturday, but apparently the memory card in my camera has gone corrupt. Hopefully it is not the camera! The images are all scrambled.

Anyway, my plan (hope) is to have a module ready to take to the Truro show on Friday. Yes, 2 days away.

The module will be a new End of Earth (EoE) replacement for our Spring Valley set. It will also function as a run through module if required. I plan to model some sort of obstruction on the tracks, like a rock fall, that will turn it into an EoE.

I built the 2′ x 3′ frame last Saturday and glued the foam to it on Sunday and Monday. Last evening I shaped the foam into hills and rocks and applied a coating of plaster. This evening will be grass, track and ballast, I hope. If I don’t get all that done this evening I still have one more evening to finish and still have time for the glue to dry.

It won’t be the first time we’ve taken a module to a show with the glue still drying!

I’ll get a new memory card so I can get some pictures at the show.

    Sounds like what I had to do last year for the Truro Show :-)

    In my case it was a corner module.
