Great progress and imaginative and effective use of foamboard. It's really versatile stuff, isn't it?

One side of the Level Crossing fixed in place today.

The hot sun has caused some of the foamboard panels that were painted a dark colour to deform a little, but not a lot, and the odd extra screw here and there seems to hold most of the movement.

It’s getting more and more impressive. The heat won’t always be this bad…..hopefully.

The road surface is Woodland Scenics Fine Ballast stuck to the abraded surface of the foamboard with Gorilla Wood Glue. After everything getting a coat of Halfords primer, it is painted black and then dry-brushed with dark grey, lastly everything gets a coat of Wilco Yacht Varnish (clear satin).
