Long time no update.
I plastered the mountain(hill) about a year ago and got around to painting it today.
Sadly I ran out of paint.
Hopefully they still sell Trail Tan, if not something close will work.



After I finish painting it (who knows when that will be), I'll have to study some youtube vids to do the next step.
Scenery has never been my thing so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

Progress! Nice to see Rick. What part of the world do you need scenery for?

Thanks Larry.
I'm trying for a western look.
Arizona/Nevada type of thing.

If you are new to it or don't want a large investment in materials you may want to see if you can use a 40 percent off coupon from a craft store and get one of these to try. https://scenearama.woodlandscenics.com/show/item/SP4124

Rick,

Interesting and fun project.

You might know this already, with everything computerized now. paint stores can often mix discontinued colors. Failing that you can take in an example for them to color match. It works quite well

Rick, you've had a year to get ready to paint this hill area and you run out of paint!

Frank, you're right.

Mike, thanks for looking in and the suggestion.
I don't think an exact match will be necessary since it will be covered in dirt and grasses.
I just wanted it painted so no white has a chance to peek through.

Thanks Mike. Larry's idea is good.

Thanks again Larry.

Rick, if you mean Ceramcoat Trail Tan, most Hobby Lobby stores have it in stock.

Rick you are always commenting on my projects so I thought that I would look for yours. After checking the entire forum I finally found something that you are working on. Wow you really do, do model railroading; just kidding. So far it looks really good and has some great potential. Keep going and you'll get there.
As far as scenery goes, and I am no expert by any means, usually if you build layer upon layer then it tends to look more realistic. Just my two cents worth.

Philip that was my attempt at trying to be funny; or not. I've checked out some of his other projects and he is indeed a great modeler.
