HIYA,

Could you show us a picture of what it is you said you were using to carve the wall detail?

Hey Rob,

Sorry it took some time to get these posted for you.

here are the tools I used to carve the plaster




I have 3 of them, the top two I got at a railroad show and I made the bottom one out of a piece of stainless.  This one has a point on one end I grounded down

Here is the ends of the others







I hope this helps you out.  I think that any tool as long as it is sturdy will work fine. 

Ryan

I have forgotten to put a finished picture of the engine house after it was set in the scene.

Good Morning Si,

Well that whole shelf layout has been taken down a few years ago. It has turned into a full layout room 11' x 12' i will take some updated photos of the engine house tonite on the layout. and post them for you to see tomorrow. The engine house hasn't changed but for the outside color of it. A lighter paint has been applied to brighten up some. Thanks, Ryan

I have give that a try ass well
do you tread the alu foil in a special way to prevent it sticking to the plaster?

Cor,
I have used both plain and the non-stick kind and both work well.  I did not treat the plain foil at all, it just peeled right off.  I used the non-stick for a G-Scale build and that work really well since it was a much larger piece.  I am still trying to get some resent pictures of it on the layout up loaded here.  I will try to get that done.
