... quick update on the massive moveable rock face below Reed Trestle. Here's a perspective shot to orient you:
I decided to fill in the entire base area, then work upward.
I add some charcoal gray dry pigment to each batch of Plaster of Paris "to taste," hoping that there isn't too much differentiation in shade when it dries. We'll see. Of course, staining can cover a multitude of sins ...
Just a quick check-in; I'm still at work on the rock work and will post some update pics when I have finished. I've been distracted with glitches in two new arrivals, one of which persists after being "fixed" by the manuf. warrantee repair dep't ... so, I decided to let them sit in the engine terminal and get back to work.
It was good to see all the guys from the Great Lakes HOn30 crew at the Midwest Narrow Gauge Show on Saturday. I'm still "chipping away" on the lift-out rock face project. One more application to fill in the notch to the right of the wet section show in this view; it's sketched in with pencil. That'll be a total of 8 applications, each one taking about 20 minutes to work.
I'll be at the RPM meet in Greensburg, PA on Saturday if any'a'yinz are planning to come out.
