I think you got the right idea starting with the foam board. Personally if I had had the brains enuff to have started with foam board I would have started digging out river beds and stuff.:wave:

Looking good Dwyane!:thumb:

Are you using that white glue on the foam?

That can slow ya down.

May I suggest Liquid nails or even better...Loctite's Power Grab.

The nice thing about Power Grab is it lets you reposition for a short time after you have seated it...then after a short time it sets up nice and solid and you are ready to move on. I used it for seating the cork roadbed and for seating the ties when I do the trackage.

I have also been using it to attach shingles on the roof I am finishing up on my latest model...it works great...no sliding of the shingles and by the time I am done with one row...the first part is setting up enough that I can start the next.

Hot Glue like the crafters use works well too for areas that are foam to foam...and you can be back at it in minutes rather than hours.

Just something for you to think about.

Keep up the nice work!!:apl:

Thanks Hotshot for the Tip..

I have been using what I have on hand white/yellow glue and latex caulk.

Which has been fine since I only spend about an hour at a time on this, so there is time for drying.

Here are the latest pic's,  I spend sometime on this and another MR project today. After I took these pic's, I notice the rough vertical change in the roadbed in the upper right corner, so I have adjusted the roadbed to a better transition.

      Now I need to figure out how the scenery going to look and see what structures I have on-hand.
