Frederic, great shots of a wonderful layout. All the vertical scenery gives it so much depth. I especially like the last couple of shots of the mine. Also thanks for the info about the bush's.

Regards Rob

Salut Frederic,

well its done! Now I had a closer look at all the 35 pages (did not read all the c omments but quite a couple!) Saw all the photos and now my eyes burns a little bit! But it was really worth it! Its just amazing what you are building, fantastic scratchbuildings, the waterfall is WOOOOW and all the very well done details too of course! Now I have a question: How do you build the rocks? How do you color them?

thanks and cheers, Paul

Ron, you're too optimistic, the only thing new here is Paul's comment...
Paul, the rocks are made with Plaster of Paris cast in latex molds and applied on a web of cardboard strips first covered with plaster sheets (the kind you find in Apotheken).
Rocks are first colored with a wash of diluted black India ink, then painted with washes of acrylics (raw and burnt sienna, some red, more India ink).
Thanks for the very kind comments.

A technique easy to master, Paul, I'm sure you'll have no problem considering the skills you've shown to us. One of the interesting facts is that you need only three or four colors to make a vey lively coloring of the rocks (I forgot white in my list yesterday...).

Looks like everyone is trying to get you to give us an hour or two a week on this great thread.
