I’ve started work on the terrain for the FCPyF’s new river crossing module. The polystyrene sheets were glued with PVA and pinned with coffee stirrers then rolled up newspaper was used to fill the steps between the contours.
This was then covered with newspaper. Not papier mâché but what American modellers might describe as glue shell, layers of cloth or paper applied with neat glue to form a slightly flexible surface as a base for further scenic treatment. When enough layers of paper had been added the bridge was dropped into place to make sure it still fits.
