Building the Tiny Colossus
As always, I started with a Gatorfoam base, to which I bonded the track with super glue. Then it was off to the races.
One of the scenes I knew in advance I'd wanted to model was a large-ish industrial building that butted up against a road that rose up over the tracks. It required quite a lot of careful planning so that the building met the sidewalk seamlessly.
Aside from this one predetermined scene, the rest I pretty much made up as I went along, such as this culvert over a little creek.
