WOW!!!! I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post! Life has been so busy, I've not had time to work on the layout. Well, yesterday and today, I found some time!!!
As I started working on scenery on the lower deck, I realized how messy it was. The thought of working on scenery on the upper deck over a finished scene on the lower deck concerned me. So, I stopped work on the lower and am concentrating on the upper deck! My main focus for now is Ackerman.
First up, I started working on a photo backdrop for the Georgia Pacific
Chip Mill near Ackerman.I've got it held in place with some spray
adhesive. I'll blend the edges with backdrop color paint next then add
foreground structures and vegetation to hide the edges.
Next, I wanted to continue the pavement along Downtown
Ackerman. I started with strips of Komatex for my road. I painted with
some Ralph Lauren latex paint called Rock Chasm. It has a gritty texture
to it. Here you can see a section of completed road next to newly
painted road. After the paint dries, I'll lightly sand the road then
paint on the stripping. After that, it gets an India Ink airbrush wash
and that's it!
