        • The next thing to do is fix the fascia. I am using 1/4" luan . It curves pretty easily. I am securing it to the 1"x 4" bench work. I started over at the small bridge and worked my way around. I added 2"x 4" where needed to secure the fascia to.



          I had a temporary piece on the front of the trestle area so I removed it...

          • For the trestle area I had to add new 2" x 4" Supports to box off the area. I also had to start with a 2' x 8' piece of luan. I secured it to the hard points.

              • I went ahead and finished all of the fascia around the layout. you can see i left it sticking up above the layout from 1-2 inches. it will be cut later..

                • The next thing I did was go around the curved sections where a fascia did not touch the layout base and traced off a piece of foam so that it matches the curve. This piece was glued underneath with hot glue to the layout base and to the fascia. This helps support the fascia in the open areas/ I then went around and filled the area on top with scrap foam for more support and so I don't have to fill with ground cover later..

                          • The whole area was then smoothed down with a rasp. You can see I took off about 2" from the front to make it all even..

                            • Ok next I moved to the front of the hill. I went to the trust Frocks. I am able to pull the foam apart in about 1/2" thick pieces. I then cut the pieces to fit the area and Hot glue them in place. Then I go back with a hydrocal mixture and brush it in. once done and dry they are hard as a rock....
