You can see Bill’s first post here – looks like he’s having a lot of fun to me.

I have no idea why, but wheneever I see pics of mountains or rock faces in the making now, for some reason I always think of Jim’s first post.

That’s all for today folks. A big thanks to Bill.

Please do keep ’em coming.

And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to make that first step from daydream to your dream layout.

  3. Looks great. Is that *just* Plaster Cloth, or is there a layer of modeling/carving plaster added???

    Love the progress pix. Cant wait to get started on mine. I think by January I oughta have the wall taken out and get the benchwork into place. Then the fun begins

    Great effort on the cliff face. I can see it will be an iconic feature to your model railroad. Rob

    I find it’s better to lay the tracks before the scenery and get all the links out. I hope it works out ok for you.
