The great scenery machine is grinding it's way towards the tiny hamlet of Renton.
About halfway between Jarvis and Simcoe, this little place hosted a stockpen and a coal dealer in the era I am modeling.
Boston Road, as it's called on the survey I have, known today as either Provincial Road #5 or Cockshutt Road, will make for a nice little bit of scenery. Given the remoteness of the location I felt that a dirt road was in order, and this is how I created it.
I started with a base of 0.060" styrene for the roadbed and a plank crossing. The edges of the roadbed were filled in with a bit of Scupltamold and the whole thing given a basecoat of "earth" coloured paint.
The product I used is this lovely stuff from Scenic Express. Nice colour and nice texture.
Did somebody call for a static grass applicator?
