A little work over the holidays, applied first and second coat of texture to bridge abutments. Initially coated abutments with a cheap gray primer rattle can paint from Walmart. Then was a mixture of lite-weight joint compound, water and black/tan paint to a consistency of thick tomato soup.
Second coat applied today
Once dried, I will sand hi-points and if needed a third coat.
Also started a little ground work in area behind bridge
On another note, I created a new blog for my interest in TT Scale modeling (1:120) http://ttscalemodeling.blogspot.com/ , so if your interested in TT Scale come follow me there.
