ACTRR my be dismantled and re-constructed

I just went to Homedepot and they do carry it about $25 a 4x8 sheet. Did you ever consider using suspended ceiling tile upside down? It's a lot easier to carry home and seems to be the same thickness/quality? Just wondering? All the work is completed in my basement so I can start on my layout again. Trying to get my plans in order.

While some have had good luck with tiles is is a vastly different consistancy.
Thanks , Mike
 
Here is my Micro-Trains Mine Shaft installed in the Ghost Town area today.

That is an amazing set-up. Each of the many area seems so distinct but yet you have crammed then in this whole world in a corner. Awesome!!

I really like that, "Selective Compression". i think i will be borrowing that. Your set up rules. I think it is time to dust off some of my N scale stuff. My son is 11 now. Imagine he should get interested, especially after I show him these pics! :)

Here is what I have been doing lately. This is the Atlas Middlesex building that I have angled to fit a space near my T Leary Chemical plant. There are A LOT of windows to do. I added the roof detail and cover on the entrance. The dock is scratch built. I still need to paint the dock and front steps as well as a few people and a base.

Today I finally got the billboards together for the tourist trap. I made them in Photoshop then printed them on regular paper at the correct size. Then I sprayed both sides of the paper with Testors decal spray (I think it is just clear lacquer). Then I cut them out and sprayed the back with 3M 77 spray adhesive. I then stuck them to some thin styrene. Then I cut them out with scissors and applied the u channel to the backs and painted them by hand.
I then went out and mounted them on the layout.
I think the effect is quite good.
