The laying out of Hougoumont was done on the weekend and now some final drybrushing and weathering and it can be glued down ready for all of the basing materials and gardens and trees to be completed.
All of the photos I have seen of Hougoumont showed a rise in the ground from both the north and south gates towards the chateau itself. We have used 3mm MDF cut with a jigsaw to step the ground up and when the filler and ground cover are put in place it should represent a gentle rise from the north gate and a sharper rise from the south gate toward the chateau.
The image in my head of what this will look like when completed is amazing and as I have seen quite a few representations of Hougoumont I think this one will be up there with the best.
Two years has just flown by but progress albeit slow is being seen.......
Cancon in Canberra on the Autralia day weekend should be an opportunity to stock up on some more terrain goodness.
