Just a thought ... when you're making the rubble would you be better off carving foam to shape then gluing on a layer of very coarse O-scale ballast and crushed plaster? You could even poke some steel shapes and timbers in the foam before applying the coat of ballast/plaster.

Take care,
Rob.



Hi Rob,
You are thinking along the same lines I am. Build up the base then detail the top layer. I did order a mold to make 1/48 bricks from Germany to add to the detail.
I was going to cut blocks of stone from DAS clay as well. I am sure I will be adding details to this 4 feet for the rest of my days.

The rear walls are done and I am starting to figure out stone rubble.
I will be building mounds from foam and gluing in some foam stones from excess foam core walls. More to follow on that.
The structure is 11" x 8".

Thanks Rob, the back drop is motivating me.
Here is a test of a brick fence. I see them in a lot of the pictures I have. They are 7 - 10 feet tall.

That looks amazing as well ... will you use something like that to mask the start of the bombed-out city on the backdrop from your 3D modeling? I think it would make a great transition scene.

Looking good Larry. Nice start.
With a bombed out war scene, you can never over do the amount of rubble, so really go for it.

And good job on the transport cases too.

Rob,
Yes, the plan is to use the foreground items to mask the transition to the backdrop. Hard to tell what I really need until tomorrow. The materials I am practicing with are really inexpensive so adjustments can be made easily.

Thanks, I had a pack of semi dried out DAS clay that I started to break up into rubble. I will need lots of it for sure. Stay tuned for months of progress on this scene.

Cody,
So happy to hear from you. Did you notice your Grandt line critter repainted from my previous hippy paint job in the transport case?

The building and wall look great Larry. Should make a statement scene.

Larry, great job on the rubble and structure.
Looks like it will work perfectly with the backdrop.
