    Ah! I see what you did and why you did it. Smart, you are.

    I built a box for the light wiring, by 'squaring off' the corner that can't be seen from the normal viewing angle with another piece of 1/4" wood angle. The round hole in the center along the ridgeline is for the smoke vent.

    Dave,

    Do you have to water? And what type of soil do you use?

    Sculptamold has a long working time, but once that's done, it's set. So I have to remember to go back after about 30 minutes to 'water' and smooth out the Sculptamold. Before then, it's too wet to work. (The farmers/gardeners out there know what it's like trying to work soil that is too wet.)

    Fortunately, once it's set, you don't need to fertilize. Just add paint, dirt, glue and vegetation :-) I did that to one small area over the weekend, and then went back and extended that area with more Sculptamold. Pictures maybe later today.

    Turntable is from Kitwood Hills. It's a great model, it goes together well and has a good power transmission mechanism. The problem is that Simon does these in 'batches' and you have to get an order in when he has this particular model available. (http://www.kitwoodhillsmodels.com )

    Nice looking Dave.

    Is that turn table a kit or scratch built? Looks great.

    Work-in-progress, "planting" the switcher shed. If the Sculptamold is dry/cured, I'll paint and apply some dirt.

    That is a nice picture, Dave. The engine house looks very good.

    Shingles and smokestack. Roof is still removable, I'll add lighting. Plus both roof and walls, particularly the front, need weathering. The ground is done, I filled in with ballast and then a layer of fine dirt, and then applied Deluxe Materials liquid ballast cement. That works great for this kind of application.
