Paul - I wish I had a suitable picture of my old layout showing the mountains and rock formations.  I will just say this - I have ZERO artistic skill.  I simply watched Rick Battista's video and did what he did.  Anyone who has the skill set to create the underground subway scenes on your old layout certainly has the skills to copy Rick's technique.  If I can do it, so can you!

I totally relate to Greg's comments, especially because I also have zero artistic skill.

If you feel the same way, don't let that hold you back doing model railroad scenery.

Using Woodland Scenics products and spray glue, if you are not happy with what you do, you can do it over until you are happy with the results.

Same is true with acrylic paints. They are very user friendly, and you can paint over and over again until you are satisfied.

Same is also true for hard shell scenery.

I also recommend booklets and other publications on making model train scenery. I don't have the names of them and the authors at the tip of my tongue at the moment.
