One such little endeavour is to start some "modern" roads. I've gone down a few avenues before with roads - none of them 100% successful and then I saw this set of roads from Hotz Art Works which was very impressive - but perhaps a little pricey.
Then the other day I was wandering aimlessly through a fabric shop with my wife and I stumbled across a roll of grey felt that looks similar to the Hotz Mats and much better than normal felt I had seen and rejected earlier. So I bought a couple of metres of it.... as you do.
I spent a few hours over the last week or so marking it up and cutting out roads as the first stage of this little activity. Here's a couple of quick photos I took last night - more for scale checking than for anything else.
So that's the easy part. I now need to add all the markings etc... So more on this once I've worked out a simple way to do that, that doesn't involve metres of masking tape....
Morale of the story... perhaps I should have bought the roads from Hotz!
