    There's a lot here already in the way of photos and how to's. Do a search (click on "search" at the top of this page) for whatever you are looking for. I know there are step-by-steps for a lot of what you're asking for. Go to the Academy and review what's in there for starters.

    I am not sure what scale you plan to use or what method for making tunnels. I know it is hard to find stuff on the forum I know I have trouble. I built my tunnels, mountain, and river from broken up ceiling tiles did not use portals. I broke the tiles into the shape I wanted and just stacked them like bricks until I reached the top. The paint is watered down water based paint put on like a wash. Here are pictures of how I made mine.
