Here's the latest work on the layout. This trestle was constructed using my "poor mans trestle" technique using wooden matches and bamboo skewers. I bumped the tutorial thread I did on this just recently if anyone is interested in building trestles dirt cheap.
It is just sitting in place for the pic, I have to use some foam and sculptamold to build up the terrain.
The trestle also needs to be painted. I have never tried staining trestles built from these materials because I just don't think the bamboo skewers will take stain. I use an airbrush and layer on very thin coats of gray, black and brown to get a subtle aged effect for the wood. It's all explained in my tutorial.
As always....more to come....
May the work of the incomparable John Allen
"The Wizard of Monterey" continue to live on in our hearts and minds and inspire us all!
