Well I finally had some time away from babysitting and got some things done on the dio. I still have a long way to go but it's lookin better all the time. I had to make a new base because the posterboard wouldn't hold up to the tile grout I wanted to use for textureing. I still have to add some rust to and finish the gas pumps and I've got a lot of other things I want to add along the sides.

Another thing--I tried that woodlands scenic cement. I've had it for yrs. It's supposed to be matte, It's not and when I used it over my sawdust grass as a fixitive it changed the color to a much darker tone, so I had to do it over, then add some torn up folage.
The artist acrylics worked out good for contrast on the dirt.
Hope you guys like it so far.

Thanks fellas. Your comments are always welcome. I guess I'll keep working on it then. The trouble w/ doing one of these is, the more you do to it, the more you want to add stuff to it. lol.
