I now have all the track laid on the upper level, just need to run and solder some feeders, and get the turnout motors hooked up. Then it's plaster cloth time!

Plaster cloth is messy, lol!

This is going to need a smear of plaster to smooth everything out once this first layer sets.

Coming along slowly. I thought this would be more fun than it is. It's a bit tedious around the details.

I need to start keeping my eyes peeled for some cheap house paint I can get tinted to look like dirt.

It's looking good. Take a look at Habitat for Humanity resell store or a similar place for your cheap paint. They sell construction and other household items donated. Most is used but sometimes stores donate new.

In the off chance that you (or others reading) didn’t know, most big stores like Home Depot have a rack of Oops! Paint. No that’s not a brand. It is color matched paint that was mis-matched. These are always on clearance. Often times you'll find neon oranges or purples, but it is not uncommon to find tans & browns, or even a slightly off-color chalkboard green or bit too olivey olive drab. You might only find a single quart one week, might find two usable gallons the next.

My sister came over this past weekend. She has always been fascinated with small things, so we had some fun and placed a lot of the structures I have been building. It's coming along nicely.

That mansion with turret looks like it’ll be great fun. Reminds me of an 1800s hotel that I woulda/shoulda bought had I not bought my current home 12-15 months prior.
Is that a 1 piece 3D print? I wouldn’t be able to resist having one wall hinged/removable & do a full interior. But I’m crazy like that.
