Good Weather Modelling

In traditional thinking the modelling season ends when temperatures rise and provides opportunities for outdoor activities. That is not the case for me. I bring a module with me outside in the sun.
Model building and barbecuing in process. 

Modules of the size I have room for and in my scale of 1:35 may have many disadvantages. Scenic potential is limited and the space available for all the things I could dream of creating will obviously always be in short supply. But on a sunny day I cherish the flexibility of  my modules. Today I had an afternoon all by myself for outdoor modelling.
As far as I got with the fences.

The fences around the back yard of the machine shop was the objective of the day's work. Unfortunately my supply of wood wasn't quite sufficient. In stead I turned my attention to prepare to install the van body on the module.
Wooden blocks as foundation for the old van. The hole is for the wires feeding the interior lights in the van.

Fixing ground cover around the van's foundations.
Surely an afternoon like this is to be counted among the most pleasant and relaxing.
