On this section I have created the land forms with strips of box board which are hot melt glued together then covered with sheets of plaster cloth. I then applied a skim coat of Hydrocal plaster that I colored with latex paint in the water used to mix the plaster. I have also added some rock formations carved in Hydrocal to blend the upper and lower levels. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106327 23106327 Cat Landing The eventual site of "Cat Landing" (see Caterpillars, Arches and Trees) https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106328 23106328 Hank's Slough and The Switchback To Cat Landing Hanks Slough will be built here and way back in the corner will be the "Bottom Line Mine", a kit I acquired at the '91 NMRA convention in Denver https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106329 23106329 Hank's Slough The track in the foreground crosses Hanks Slough and the one behind it climes a 2% grade to "Cat Landing" https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106331 23106331 The final shaping begins. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106332 23106332 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106333 23106333 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106334 23106334 A coat of Hydrocal mixed with latex paint/water. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106337 23106337 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106335 23106335 Blending the upper and lower decks. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106339 23106339 The first stages of vegetation and forestation. The log span bridge goes to Cat Landing while the blue board bridge (to be replaced by a timber trestle) goes to the mine. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106336 23106336 "Hank's Slough" https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106344 23106344 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106346 23106346 Eventual site of the camp structures. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106341 23106341 The hill in front of the tracks where the camp cars were to be acted as too much of a view block so I began to re-think my plans for the area. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106340 23106340 The hill has been removed and I'm ready to reshape the land form. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23525293 23525293 I used the usual process here as elsewhere to creat land for the camp. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23724655 23724655 Camp 2 Construction of the cookhouse and dining car for camp 2 continue while I get the living quarters and office in place. Much detailing needs to be done so this is just a preview. https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23106343 23106343 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23523813 23523813 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23987639 23987639 https://aandbr.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=23987640 23987640
