Greening of the roof

Standard

Can just make out some of the greening from here.
That table is to ‘go’ and a sturdier, wooden one will take its place

Wet and dark

but mostly on the inner face, where there would be less air movement and it would always be dark and damp.

Thankfully this bird is still here this morning

The greenery dust is model railway ground cover (three shades mixed) and the tufts are from model war-games suppliers.  One coat of dust was added pre matt sealant and a second shaken in a few placed here and there whilst that coating was very wet, hopefully giving the greenery a little more added depth(?)

Onwards and upwards – literally

Now clearing up (a little) and working on the replacement table.  We bought a second-hand modern trestle and Steve has sanded it down and is extending it a little to take the Hogepotche monster.  Oh yes he’s adding castors too.  I’m staining and sealing it as and when and we hope to get it done in the next week or so.  Then it’s all hands to the pump again for lift off and refit.

Meantime lots of surfaces need a sealing coat, some folk need glu dotting into place, and the roof scene needs to be brought to completion.  I’m just going to get that ladder.
