Jim- Capellini is even smaller than angel hair.

Kevin- You'll be OK.

Rob- Thanks.

Frank- I am not one of those folks, but I retain the right to change my mind at any time.

Thank you Jim.

You're right, those modelers methods seem to be always "pushing the envelope".

Das clay walls dried. It took 24 hours for each side for me. Your mileage may vary.
Following my drawings I trimmed the walls to the exact sizes. The clay now feels like "county fair pull taffy" to me.
Very stiff and hard, but bendable.



I wanted 45 degree corners here, so I put them on my sanding jig. The clay sanded off easily, into a fine dust.



I then glued some .050" chipboard against the backs of the clay walls, to stiffen and brace.



Added 1/8" square onto the chipboard. Solid now and I'm not afraid to handle them.



For the gate house section, I glued two clay walls back to back, because they'll be exposed to the viewer.



I also scribed a few block walls on some old Plaster of Paris sections I've had laying around.
I may/may not use this inside the gate house.



Till next time, another change?....

Carl,

Thank you for the very helpful step by step for using clay. Itís something I need to try. Your results are very realistic.

Carl,

Looks excellent, I went to the Mich Toy website, and they're just about out of stock on all of the road, rock, and brick rollers. You might be salesman of the year!

Carl the walls are looking good. I'm learning stuff to use when I get around to doing some brick background buildings. Thanks for the tips.
