Urban Planning at 1:160
I'm also trying to get at least one line of track fully operational...meaning track weathered, ballasted, wired and ready to run trains, and the best candidate is the inner loop that goes around the city (what I call the "green line"). Which meant finishing up, as much as possible, the tram line and most of the city buildings/scenery. As I started working on this, I realized that it would be impossible to do all the street markings with buildings installed, so I had to clear everything down to the streets.
While I was on that project, I realized that I didn't like my 'sidewalk color' and decided I wanted something a bit more gray instead of the yellow-ish gray I originally chose. I also need to add new sidewalks and couldn't get a good match of the colors and I really wanted the sidewalks to not be noticeable, but just add to the attempted realism of an urban environment ( and having city blocks in different colors didn't fit this plan!).
Faller 272451 rub-on decals for most of the markings, although for dashes and solid lines I'm using Chartpak 1/32 Matte White tape. Rub-on decals are not my favorite thing to do and I'm glad I have a few extra as I've made a few mistakes with this stuff. The Chartpak tape is a lot easier to deal with, although it doesn't have the strongest bond, but a coat of dull-coat over the markings when I'm finished should seal everything in nicely.
