What do you guys use to make mountains? I am thinking of Rockies or Cascades (Volcano) types.
Any tips or suggestions on how to make one? I will be making a dio of a town and cars on said mountain. Possibly a track running down the side.
Thank you for any ideas.

I've been using scrap styrofoam glue it all together and shape it with a hand grinder. Cover it in sifted dirt seal with diluted elmers and alcohol!

Try using the pink or blue foam, it's a finer compound, sands a lot easier...With using foam you can take a tree, get rid of the ugly base, heat up a straight pin and while it's hot, stick into your tree trunk. Now you can move your trees around by just sticking them in the foam...RM
