    I just put in the paking lot behind the round house. I used white foam board. I bent it here and there for to make cracks and since it is used stuff from work the surface is pealed in many places, makes nise pot holes. I sprayed it Dark gray, but it looked like a epoxy painted basment floor! Then I tried flat black that was too black. Then I put the plaster around the lot. Well of course I got plaster all over. As it turns out I used a wet paper towel to remove the plaster. It left a gray film and after repeated plaster applications and clean ups it doesent look to bad. God I love this hobby! The more you messup the better things look.

    You are right, waht other hobby can a foul up become a solution. Can't tell you how many of those I have.

    Yep, looks good. It becomes difficult to do if you work at it. Messing up is easier and more natural looking in the long run..:) :)

    :thumb:The parking lot came out great and what you did gave some sort of what I should do with my industries parking lots, and to go one step further some areas flooded.

    Looks good Joe! You did a really nice job on the white lines. Did you mask and airbrush them?
