Hey Bill Just got back from a long weekend out of town. The church looks coxy set back next to the mountain. My wife had a nice church scene set back next to a mountain & also an old school house. Every thing she builds is nice & clean. My son & I weather every thing. We nick named her areas Martha Stewartville. I worked some more on my platform for my log unloader today, will post some pics of the frame work soon. Have you ever tried Structo-lite on stacked foam. It is a plaster base coat material that sets up slow & very easy to work with. I do all my hills with that. Once you spread it on & let it dry some you can tool it how ever you want, if it dosen't look right just take a damp painters brush & brush it out & start over. I also use painters caulk to glue the foam boards together & push finish nails at an angle in various places to keep it together. Keep up the work !
