Project model railway #30 - Phase 1 completed

in creative •  last month 

After ~2,5 years of work - beginning from the first plan until today - the project reached its first and most important milestone: There are no "white spots" left. Everything is covered with vegetation, roads or buildings. cheer

And as promised, I am going to show you further details:
Complete overview of "Klein Waldberg"

Fresh wood for the saw mill arrived

And if you work hard, it may end up like this

Pack you backpack... we're going on a journey...

Ah, the apples are ripe.

There is always time for beer.

Train is leaving... hurry up!

Is this the end now?

No! It is NOT THE END!
There is still a lot of work to do. For phase two I need to add more vegetation (cut grass everywhere does not seem too realistic, right?) and I want to add street lamps for the night life of our little people.

I already started and planted ~100 little flowers and bushes by hand. I tell you... this is going to be tough :D

@wirago ! You are AMAZING !!! Every time i see your miniature projects, I am blown away with the amount of detailing, care, and gorgeous personality that you managed to capture and deliver * ___ *

What a gorgeous creation, @wirago <3 I will continue to wait for progress posts

..... 100 little flowers and bushes, painted by hand?????? Dearie me, you are admirably dedicated !!! <3


They are not painted because the flockage I use is already colored. But they still need to be assemled and glued one by one on the ground. The result looks like this:

The more different plant types and color you use the better the result will get. Except you want a filed with red flowers only :D
I need to figure out how to mix the colors and plants in a way that it looks realisitc but not overfilled. We will see :)

Wow thats amazing!!! Little boys heaven!

Hey, @wirago. You've done an amazing amount of work here. Congratulations on the first phase completion.

What you describe about planting things sounds like a pretty big task, and time consuming, simply because it sounds like it will require a high level of patience and skill.

The fact you already have flowers and bushes planted is amazing.

What gauge is that, HO @wirago?


Yes, H0 (1:87)


It's a beautiful layout;
6 x 6?


Not sure what you mean with 6x6. The size? It's about 4.9m²

I smiled when I saw the little people working with the logs. It warms my heart seeing that kind of story telling. I am impressed with your work @wirago

That's a really nice layout! The scenery is coming along nicely.
2-1/2 years, just a model railroad layout ever really finished? :-)
All I have right now is display tracks on some shelves.


It will never be really finished. Probably.
But this kind of hobby is always a marathon and not a sprint. Normal people usually don't have the budget to buy everything at once anyways :D
