This is a new building block material that I recently received from Dave Batemen of Model Rail Structures.

I've started to experiment with them and there's lots of potenetial! I plan on making more abutments and building foundations using this stuff. I use Zap a gap to piece them together.

Very nice. I recently received a few bags of that stuff myself. Now I need to use it somewhere. Thanks for the inspiration!

I take it those are single bricks?
Yes, that's the beauty of this stuff, you can cut it, shape it, sand it, paint it. It's very versatile.

Fergie,

I discovered the Lego Secret years ago when I was scratchbuilding steel mill structures and machinery. I can easily cement them to styrene, butyrate and PVC using PlasticWeld.:cool:

Fergie, I like the looks of the blocks, how easy are they to trim to make a little smaller? I was going to order a few packs of them to sctrach build the block culvert that'll be on my layout.

All you need to do is score them on both sides and snap them with pliers or your fingers.

I'm so happy with their potential I ordered four more bags.

David's gernerosity is amazing, he's sending me a sample, so I can see how they'll turn for the culvert!

I expect to be ordering some of these soon. I've been looking for bridge abuttments and haven't found any commercially available ones to my liking.
