“Hi, Mr. Lee,
It doesn’t look like people like this stuff much for what it is designed, but it is great for model railroading
It is called Rustoleum “Deck & Concrete Restore® 10X”
It is meant to keep people from slipping on outdoor decks, but in the earth colors it make the best “rock face” I’ve ever seen. It actually has sand in it, with a strong binder. It is very thick, but can be applied with a paint brush. It is thick enough and applies rough enough to cover Styrofoam or plaster underlay so it looks like natural rock.
I don’t know if it is available in the U.K., but at Home Depot in the U.S. it sells for $45 for TWO gallons. That would cover a lifetime of most model railroader’s construction of layouts, so maybe it would be best for a club to buy it and divide it up.
It comes in dozens of colors and shades – even green which makes a great ground cover.
Check it out; I don’t think there is a better way to create a mountain layout.
