As on 'Hennock' I am going to use the Peco 'N' Gauge stone platform edges. I use the 'N' Gauge version as they seem realistic, and by standing then on mounting card come to an exact 3ft from the rail surface.These have proved successful so I have undercoated about 20 of them, and then had a play with some axcrylic paint picked up cheaply in my favourite Discount Shop.
A darker shade of grey was drybrushes on so that the stones are a darker colour. Then some of the individual stones were picked out in a lighter shade of grey and a medium brown.
The white of the platform edges neede a couple of coats, the white used is Model Colour by Vallejo, a product I was introduced to by our local weathering expert who will, incidentall, be at Westfest in September.
