I got the Sculpta-Mold all leveled out. Still need to add the gravel and weeds but I took a couple shots to see what the structure would look like in place:





I had to order the gravel so it will be a few days before I can finish this scene up....but it looks very promising.

I have begun getting the area ready for planting the structure:




Going to need a retaining wall to level out the terrain. I used coffee stirrers (distressed with a saw blade and a knife). Weathering was done using ink-wash and chalk:




I will use Sculpta-Mold to level it all out....more pics as I progress.

Thank you sir!!!

I am pretty much done with the scrap yard. I just "dirty-ed" things up a bit. blackened the coal bin, added stains on the ground, put a couple of boards under the tanks:


I grimed up the track and added stains on the soil around it:


Most other things remain as they were in earlier pics. I am happy with the way it all turned out, I just wish I had a deeper area to work with....oh well  ;)

On to the next project which will be a nice little plumbing business.......

Thanks guys!!

Getting close to the end on this one....just a little more work around the shed and I'll be done.

In the meantime I added some more weeds and signs:








Next post will wrap up the scrap yard  :tada:

Gas and oxygen tanks are a nice touch.

Still moving some things around and making some changes:


Looks like I still have a ways to go on the scrap yard  ::)  ;)

I try to do it at least once a month. I bought a small vac hose and attachments from Micro-Mark. You hook it up to your full size vac. just make sure everything is glued down good or you will be digging it out of the bag.

How often do you dust off structures and other stuff? I have seen some layouts that obviously have been around a while, and they more often than not have a layer of dust that dulls the look of everything.
