ShareThisOk guys I would like to know I building my layout and need to find out with the bench work do you use all plywood for a base or do you just cut the plywood just for the track and then use 2 inch  foam as the scenery base. Ok I like how you did that now the next thing would be if you but a building in there any where would you put it on the foam or would you put little bit of plywood for the base on the building. After I had all of my plywood sub-roadbed in I will probably put foam (usually 2" thick) in between the plywood sub-roadbed sections to support structures and landscape. I put the buildings on foam or plywood and then support them with the risers or attach them to the existing framework.
Thats exactly what I was thinking of doing thanks for all yo help now I need to find out how wide to cut my subroadbed for ho scale. The tunnels and mountains are constructed from broken styrene boxes, expanding foam and plaster cloth. I then fill in everything with triple expanding foam (in an aersol, $14 from a large hardware store chain). I just chop and hack any old way to obtain random shapes and because I do this I don’t become set in a pattern. After the plaster cloth hardens (24hrs) I then mix up a soup mixture of plaster and dab this on to reinforce the hardshell. Cant really see it in the photos but at the bottom of the waterfall is a pond with river coming of this.
Have been trying to use burlap I got from a farm store, whole lot cheaper than from a cloth store, and popsicle sticks. Want to try and do something that looks like one of our mountains here in North Carolina, USA. HI , Can’t wait to see the end result but have you left a way to retrieve any derailed trains in the tunnel. I used greatstuff foam and news paper for filler and it turned out pretty good and I also used foam board to make the tunel and used balsa wood for the tunel porthole.
ShareThisI did not come up with this idea, but saw it on another model railroader's layout and loved the way it looked. After I've stretched is very thin I take it outside and spray the fiber with spray adhesive.


Next I spray the same piece with adhesive and add course ground foam that is a mixture of colors. On Misti Mountain much of the ground cover was completed using the same poly fiber panels (outlined in yellow). I've seen the stuff advertised before, but your explanation makes it look definitely worthwhile. When you stretch the black poly fiber and coat it with your foam, would you characterize the end result similar to WS "Foliage"?
Bill, I haven't used the WS item, but I believe the do it yourself is quite a bit cheaper. On the exemplar mogul Lumber Storage adroitness discard the credit card boards that come with it. Its  seems to me that it would be a waste to use plywood then 2 inch blue foam on top of it.

The mountain is constructed by breaking up styrene boxes (got these from the fuit and vegtable section of a large supermarket as ithey are what the transport cold produce are are usually trash) and randomly placing them on the tunnel roof.
Next step will be a mixture of grey acrylic primer mixed with water and plaster to prime the scene. It can be found as scrap at construction sites, and can be formed in any shape, like a mountain.
While they take up angstrom unit fair number of space a 4×8 layout is easy to go come out of the closet of the means when you need the way for something else.

I did not use wadded newspaper as a fellow modeller had an insect problem from the newspaper. There is a different type, that is expanded metal mesh, used for stucco on overhanging structure. I never thought of that ( I’m rather thick ) Will experiment with that medium when I return home to Wales in the new year.

When I started modeling railroads I found that it was easy to utilize as primer coat binding as well It’s great overgorge and amp whole lot cheaper than solid ground foam. Editor Neil Besougloff describes the scenery base, including how he made mountains using pink foam insulation board. Cutting a hole in the rear of the plaster and hanging a curtain will keep the light out while allowing retrieval.
Building Model Railroad Topography and Scenery with Foam aside Sam Over the years there have been many ways to material body model railroading. Posted by Modulator Indiana Expanded polystyrene a white foam control panel made up of small-scale beads.
He and managing editor David Popp also discuss the tunnel portals used on this HO scale model railroad. Also by using the broken styrene boxes and no expanding foam I can create a cave in the layout as seen above the tunnel opening.
Most 4×8 example railroads let the trains run nigh importantly a 4x model railroad scenery foam board.
A tip about sculpting landscape on a manikin railroad layout victimisation rigid foam or foam made for building architectural models around modelers will use the High Density insulating material Board. When I was a sheetrock hanger, we also would use a piece of this expanded metal, folded over, like the Surform. It makes a good scraper for styrofoam, and if you pick it up at a construction site, it is free.
