Pink foam is a bit messy in that you get lots of little pink dust when carving / sanding it. However, it all vacuums up quite easily with a shop vac, and there's really no sticky goo, as with plaster layup. Wear a dust mask, and have the shop vac handy, and you should be fine.

Personally, I like the foam in that it paints quite well using standard latex / acrylic paints.

It's available in 1/2", 1", and 2" thick sheets, so you can mix/match these to achieve you intended ground slopes, grade changes, tunnel interior heights, etc.

Good luck,

TJ
