I'm at the point on the new layout where highway construction is on the horizon. On my former layout, I used the Scenic Express product...mixed the paste and applied it, and when dry, applied the black overcoat. It looked quite realistic. I'd like to try another method this time.
For this layout, I'd like to build up the roadbed a 1/4" or so starting on Main St. to make the curbing height more realistic abutting the MTH buildings. I can envision using a 1/4" sheet product, cutting it to size to the dimension of the road, and coating it or painting it flat back...maybe using the Scenic Express product for black coating.
Any thoughts? Your opinions / options much appreciated.
