Thank you all once again. I wish I could say it was a fun project but at one point I got frustrated and bounced it off a wall, picked up the pieces and stuffed it back in the box for several weeks. That explains why the seat back is a piece of wood. I never did find the original. The second time went much better.

Several years ago I got tired of looking at flat foam and decided to change that. Carved out a chunk but then just left it for later. Later came last week when I had to finish it to complete the town. Didn't really have a plan so just did something. Happy with the results. I will add the water tomorrow when everything dries completely.







Thanks for looking, Roland

Roland the area looks really good. Adds a lot of interest to the front of the layout. The way you used the scenery material looks very real.

Really great looking scene Roland. Plenty of detail without being over the top. The trees look especially nice.

Regards Rob

My current build.

Roland, its fantastic. The colors and textures along with the detail just bring it to life. I am starting to put dirt and ground cover down in some small areas on my own layout. So, I am looking for ideas on soil. I love the reddish undisturbed areas in your river bed and the the lighter dirt in the highly used flat areas where the foot and vehicle traffic is. Do you mind sharing what you use and where you get it from. I have been asking in the forum to see what others use and what might work best for me.

Thank You

I am truly thankful for all your comments. It is nice to have people who know what it takes to tell me I am getting it right.

Jeff. I was working on a construction site and noticed the reddish dirt so I filled a 5 gallon bucket and took it home. The lighter dirt is just clay from the back yard as are most of the stones. I have mentioned before that I am kind of color blind so I use as much natural material as I can. That way I know it is right. Drives Mrs Hopeless crazy when we go for a walk and I am picking up stones and twigs for use. Some of the ground cover is just older gray mulch. I also use dead leaves that I grind up as small as I can as ground cover under a tree. Not only the right color but cheap to. Hope this helps.

Roland
