Thanks. I haven’t done much in the layout until recently. I have operated trains and put together a mantua 2-8-2 from scratch.

Here is my 1st attempt at painting rock. A little too brown. I want to go more grey. I think it turned out well though. This is just painted styrofoam. I am going to use hydrocal for the rocks for durability.

So here is my initial attempt at making a tunnel portal. It is glued together and I still need to add some joint compound and paint it.

I am following MarklinOfSweden’s technique. 0BE05278-148B-40AF-92F1-7AD41E56FC72.jpeg

Sorry for the rotated photo.

I’ll see how it turns out before making the second one. I will post updated photos when I finish it.

Well as it turns out, I do not have the skills of Martin on my first attempt. In my opinion, my finished portal isn’t what I am looking for.

I will try again!

So I finished the sculptamold on the mountain. I think it came out pretty well. I just need to finish the two portals and it will be ready for painting. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
