Despite the distraction the Bucentaure poses, I'm still feeling comfortable about getting everything done in time for Historicon. We shall see....
More Stupid Terrain Modeler tips - this is a rolling list of things I've learned while doing this project
(1) Ground foam crops look awful when they are different sizes and not spaced evenly - take the time to add details in the right way and don't rush
The additions from this post:
(2) Gravity stays in effect while building terrain. I had forgotten that water flows to the lowest level and after leaving the risky depression board to dry overnight and came in to discover that the diluted glue had kept into the sand bottom and brought along enough flock to cover it - the whole section had to be redone. I should have put some dam's in place.
(3) Plaster cloth is great for terrain but don't but the hobby version which is expensive - buy the cloth from a medical supply house (it's the stuff used to make casts) - you can get 5x the amount for 1/3 the price.
