Thanks Herb ! The sag is more a coinsidence then a deliberate add, but I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for the tip !

Finished planking on the long quay wall and made a start on the rocky part on this module. Wanted the more edgier look of the rocks in Acadia National Park so I made a start in pink foam this time..

Rocky part is looking good, Martin. Are you using something over the foam or just carved and painted foam?

Thanks Tim, did add a thin coat of plaster over the carved foam, just a bit of a gap filler..

Seeing what Troels achieved with foam for rocks and now seeing your results with it.... Gonna have to try it.

Nice work Martin!:Salute:

Busy weekend with a game, BBQ afterwards, B-day party on saturday...started painting rock and placed a couple of mockups more on the modules..





Some will say it's a bit crazy but I started on the backside of the modules, buildings place half on mainland with their backs on docks...hardly visible but I do think a couple of half hidden features add some interest to the layout..





hope to do some small jobs before I head off to Germany for 3 days again...

Like your rock a lot Martin.   Although Troels looks good artistically, the aluminum foil method doesn't give the sharp edges like you show.

Thanks Dave, although I do like this ones I think I'll stick with the foil method for the rest of the layout L: Nothing much to report further, it's wiring time :Crazy:
