Roads - Part 2

Well I'm glad that I ran a little ahead with a test run.  It turns out that the pigments in the kids paints are really, really weak.  So weak that the brown was drying to almost black over the black undercoat.  So, the originals have been re-undercoated with white spray and then painted brown again.  It's cost me a few hours progress and a bit of detail with all of those layers of paint.  However, hopefully things will progress more soon.  We've got guests this afternoon so it may be next weekend before I can make much progress on this project.  With a little luck I might be able to get through the base coating during the evenings this week. 

Currently my road set consists of:

  • 6 12" straights
  • 2 16" straights (the bits left over)
  • 2 short ends for cul de sac type things
  • 1 90 degree bend
  • 4 45 degree bends
  • 2 t junctions
  • 1 cross roads
  • 1 Y junction
Hopefully this will be enough to fulfil my needs!
