Finished a storage building for the Appetite Mine. It measures 8'x15' with 9' ceilings. The building has a foam core sub shell with strip wood and siding made from cereal box card stock, a idea picked up from Bob R.
Not being familiar with the region that you're modeling do you find the stark mountains that you have to be on the bland side? I have a canyon area with high cliffs that I'm modeling and I just feel that it needs some oomph. I'm modeling basically desert scenery so I have to keep any plants on the sparse side.

Michael, I agree, my needles are rather bland looking. Greenery of various types will be added as time allows. As you can see from this shot ( photographer unknown) of a section of the needles, the needles them selves have little to no vegetation on them. At the base is where all the plant life is found.

This is the Needles Eye Tunnel, ( photographer unknown) showing that little vegetation is present. This shot also shows that tunnels piercing the Needles, much as my tunnels do, is actually done here in the Black Hills. LG
