Temple Court scenery – Part I …
This week has seen me make a start on forming the scenery in the Temple Court section.
So I dragged out some polystyrene foam I had been collecting over the years and worked out what I could use.
I had some 30mm thick sheets about a metre square that would do the trick, along with an assortment of various shapes and sizes.
The foam is cut to shape and glued to the joists with water based construction adhesive, with additional timber supports installed where required. The next stage is to use some high density XPS foam to build up the areas that will require carving away.
The section on the far left will probably end up being a low cutting to help disguise the ‘rat-hole’ in the backscene.
The section near the centre of the photo will be a rocky outcrop based on the prototype as shown below.
