While thinking of track plans, I started something else. I like the look of the Alamo next to the tracks but its a little too big. Upper management would not let me hack on the school project with a razor saw.
I got out the blue foam and started to carve my own mission.
Light coat of rattle can primer to etch the foam a little. Too much it will melt.
Poncho is wondering if his sombrero will fit through the door.
I made the wall awhile back after seeing something like it at a Mexican food restaurant. I'm going to build a different wall and make some changes. Planning a bell tower on the other side.
DAMN NICE! I suspect that if you make a replica of the Alamo, the little old ladies from the daughters of the Republic of Texas (caretakers of the Alamo) will drop by your place with torches and pitchforks! YIKES!!!

Very effective Stephen. Having seen your work and been following Daniel Caso's for a long time, I really should try this foam carving at some time. And you can just smell the decay in that door! Nicely done.
At the local crafts store I found a padre that stands about 1.5 inches, or about 5.5 feet in 1/35 scale. Junipero Serra, father of the California Missions, was on the short side at about 5 feet tall so I think a 5.5 foot tall padre on my layout will work just fine.
