First, an overview of the areas near Iroquois Paper, and across the aisle to the open running areas between Onondaga and Fayetteville:
Now an image showing the Blue Circle Cement plant and Fayetteville up behind:
Next up, a closer view at Iroquois, showing the steps immediately following fascia installation. I use hot glue to secure a web of cardboard strips, which will form the rough support for the terrain above.
Once the strips are secured, I use plaster-soaked gauze and newspaper laid across the webbing to represent the ground surface. A second layer firms this up and once dry, can be painted a dark earthy color before installation of static grass or other scenery.
Now that all the plaster is in, the next step is paint and some base scenery - which will be part of another post! :-)
What a wild and crazy month it has been. It's a good thing to see that the layout construction has continued despite the many changes that have come lately! I'm hopeful that I will fit a few more good improvements in before the yardwork season starts.
