As I continue to apply basic scenery to the layout, the next section is the Proviso / Clinton Yard area. Its a big chunk of real estate, but with the large amount of track and area set aside for warehouses and other industrial buildings/roads, there is not that much scenery involved. First step was to attach aluminum screening.
I got a new small staple gun for Christmas that made the work so much easier than my old 25 year old generic model. Should have gotten it before I started on the scenery. Oh well, water under the bridge.
Next, is the messy step of model railroad building and probably my least favorite; plastering. I mix up the plaster of paris and apply it to the screening with a butter knife. I know there are lots of newer methods out there, but this is the one I know.
After getting a second gallon of paint, I got to work and completed yet another section of basic scenery. I now have just one more section left to do. I hope to get that completed before the end of Christmas break next Tuesday.
