Hi folks. i started a new Diorama recently and on completion of the Rockwork put together a small clinic on installing Rock castings and talus and the pinting and finishing techniques used.

The rockwork is based on Canadian Shield/Great lakes area type scenery. If you like the looks of this type of rockwork, The how to clinic link will follow picture.

Thanks for viewing and I hope some of you find the clinic helpful as you move forward into the scenicing portion of building your layout.
