Finished Fence (1/35)

The fence around Pedersens Maskinforretning (Pedersen's Machine Shop) is now finished. I dug out the remaining wood to finish it during the week. The three fence modules were primed in grey primer and treated with oil paint (rust and dark brown) and a steel brush when everything was dry. A quick and pretty acceptable result. It's not exactly Marcel Ackle-standards (see his 'Feldbahn Kreuzt' diorama here), but it could be worse.
Now the fence is in place grass and bushes are beginning to spread on the module.
With the fence in place the module is beginning to look like I wanted. With Nystrup Gravel's track passing between the brick wall and main building of Banke's Bakelite and the wooden fence of the small back yard of the machine shop. A little railway making its way through a small town's industries.
While the fence is still unpainted in this shot it was basically this kind of view I set out to produce on this module. A lot of work still has to done, though.

Pedersen's Machine Shop undertook all sorts of jobs. Repairs on tractors made up a significant part of the work during certain parts of the year. Here an old Swedish made Volvo tractor with gas generator has found its way into the shop's backyard.
