I decided that the grave base in Revell's Frankenstein is just to lame. I would like to create a dungeon, and would like some suggestions on how to make dungeon walls and stairs. I would also like to put in a lighted torch or two. Any ideas would be greatly appreated.

Hey olson,

The best stuff for carving your own walls is Balsafoam. It comes in different size sheets and thicknesses. You can scribe it with anything sharp tool or sculpting tools. Good stuff and not too expensive.

I had made some nice stone sections in the past with Foamcor/Gatorboard and Durham's Water Putty. Slather the Water Putty (sort of like powdered plaster) onto the Fomcor, then when dry its easy to carve, cut, chistle...

Another sealer for balsa foam is a mix of elmers white glue and wood putty. Fleagore tolds me about that one. Used in movie props.
