I went elsewhere and bought another bucket of drywall mud to get my mountains. What a difference!! So i did get a bad batch or most likely a frozen bucket. Now i can make mountains!!

I haven't been feeling all the well, So i took some time away from the layout. Today is another thing. I got first and second coats of the new bucket of drywall mud. What a difference it made! This stuff is so easy to work along with. I have the mountain to finish on the right side of the layout. I may have to get another qt to finish. If i do i will check first before i buy. Shots of the back area i have got so much done. I put 4 shots in here of that fun. So way much easier!

I am taking a break. Plan to clean up the layout and track. Gonna run some trains and enjoy the the holidays. My body is giving me pain in places that i need to be using. My hands are the worst. I plan to wait till after new years before i start up the build again. Somewhere in the stuff, i have a christmas tree for the court yard in front of the office and hotel. Gonna find it and put it back where it belongs. Happy holidays folks!

I cleaned the layout off and was working on cleaning the rack and saw a place that needing a small change. But i went too far and now will have to make another change to fix that! Funny how something small can blow the plan up. So.. guess i will have to fix that and see if i can do it without getting into anything major. Shots below.

Well, I just can't quit without seeing something else that needs fixing. I have several shots of the headache and fixing. I got the work from the trestle bac to the whole left side finished but for the rest of the cracks in the plaster to make the rough rock formations to show. I also have a picture of my next area to (fix).

I had thought of placing a small mountain to give another pass for the main line. I went ahead and did it and its not great but i am keeping it. I will most likely change the shape of the hill in front some to make it follow the track better. Shots below. next...
