Here's the initial playing around with the road arrangement.
|I wanted the main road to have a slight cosmetic curve, This will partially block the line of sight from end to end and give a nice view for photographs. A shot taken from either end should look the road continues. Will see how that works out.|
|The stream has been cut out as well|
Putting down the clay on the road
Then I built up the surrounding area to the level of the roads and used a different color of clay for that.
I only finished one board to this level. It will be the "west" edge. This is the arrangement I came up with last night. Of course its very easy to change,just move the buildings around! If I decide I don't like the road arrangement I'll have to make a new board, but that's pretty easy to do. Nothing is set in stone at this point...just clay.
|I'll have to come up with a little fence to go around the two sides of the livery stable. That's the large purple building sitting by itself at the edge of the board.|
