When I originally planned Pine Creek I didn’t think it would be anything other than flat but when I needed three inches of foam to accommodate the turntable base, I made it a little wider and carved out the front. I liked the way it came out so I decided to add some hills along the back.

There wasn’t much room so I figured I’d wrap the hill around the office and make it look like they dug out the hillside to build it.

I made a foam block the same size as the building and attached it to the layout.



Then I built the hills snug up against it.





I removed the block and contoured the hillside. I thinned out joint compound and covered the hills. The block fit perfectly.

Yesterday was a near perfect day here in north Texas. Temperature in the high 70’s and lots of sunshine. We know what that means… YARD WORK!  Yard work will be followed shortly by POOL TIME and TRAIN TIME will become even scarcer. So, before that happens I wanted to get a little more done on Pine Creek.

I textured any remaining flat spots and put the basic ground cover down. Nothing major, just a little work before BACK PAIN from YARD WORK set in.

Bob I need to ask you to stop using all those objectionable four letter words on the forum.

Namely.... YARD WORK, BACK PAIN.

I don't care for those. :bg::bg::bg:

Looks great!!
