Landscaping in March

The end module has had a little work done to it and is coming along nicely. I've had a bag of sculptamold lying about for ages put aside for when I got up to the landscaping stuff. I dragged it out after just a little bit of searching. I put down a base of tissues and watered down white glue over some screwed up paper as a base. I do put plastic over the paper formers so that after its well dried I can take out the formers leaving a hollowed shell, nice and light and tidy.

Once the paper had dried out I mixed up some of the sculptamold. This stuff is brilliant! Easy to use and it dries out hard. Perfect for what I wanted. It had a fairly quick setting time, but does seem to take a bit to cure in the humidity up here.

I've started the backdrop painting, just the foreground to go, when i have a minute. So there you go, not sure that the photos show up too much, some colour will help next I think, Geoff.


  1. Geoff,
    looking fantastic. Snowfields are so hard to do right.
    Are you planning on putting any skiers on the slopes? ;)

  2. Hi Geoff,
    Looking good......Not long till Toowoomba! Might even be up there for the exhibition.
    Did you by any chance bid on a Turret tender on EBay?



  3. Thanks Bob, I'm a little unsure where to put the chairlift just yet!

    Ian, I knew it was you! As soon as I saw the email, you just beat me to it! It'd be great to see you up on the range this year.

    Thanks fellas, Geoff.
