Very droll Mr K. I believe revenge is best served cold so you may have wait a while before you notice any ill effects.

Thanks to Woodie, Peter & Doc. I have successfully stuck together small scraps of Styrofoam (actually rigid PU foam) using PVA. Bonding x sq. ft. together is my real concern.

Regards, Michael

Your India ink wash has really enlivened the '3D' appearance. That textured can stuff looks fine on sandstone but maybe less so on the limestone layers. Just sayin'.

Regards, Michael

ps: Excellent trees & foliage on your sugar cane diorama. Looks really tropical.

Hi Michael,

Good eye. I wondered about the texture paint on the limestone too. Should be interesting to see after upcoming "dry brushing" with shades of gray.

Only "foam safe" spray paint at the local store had the texture in it and I gave it a whirl.:dope:

Stay tuned more pics in a few days. Glad you liked the Haiti layout.....a real departure from standard modeling practice.

Tonight I did some work with painting limestone on the "Kit Creek" side of the layout.





The tan brown areas are where the wintertime forest will be planted.

Thanks for your input. Doc Tom

Well in the recent posts I went from a blue cube to some painted rocks. Now the layout looks like a camouflaged Aircraft Carrier with a flat deck. I need to bring some 3-D changes to the top of the layout.

To do that I will use some of the many scrap pieces of Blue Styrofoam leftover from the beginning of the construction. These will ultimately form small hills to break up the flat deck look.



These scrap pieces will be cut carved and fitted.



Before permanently fixing them to the layout I will adjust to allow for clearances of railroad equipment. This was something fairly difficult to do in the past with plaster scenery.





Thank you again for following along. Doc Tom

Howdy Doc, this is really coming along nicely. The rockwork looks great. I'm with you, some more hills on top will really add to the scene. Keep on going.

Woodie

***BTW-I really love those little Heislers!***

Thanks Woodie and NB (Ken). After the basics of the hill forms are created I will use tinted sculptamold to rough in the land forms further.

Thank you all for following along.

I have cut up the scrap Styrofoam and added it to the top of the mini layout. This hopefully will provide more of a 3-D effect.





This is a backwoods Railroad and I wanted the terrain to be rough and uneven.





After several weeks, this is the last of the Styrofoam I will have to cut, shape and glue to the layout.

Next up will be tinted sculptamold to provide more of the texture for the layout surface.

Looking good.

I can relate to the problem of getting scenery too close to the track. What little scenery exists on my layout is going to have to be ripped out and re-done.

Some for reasons of clearance.
