i have been reworking my N Trak module after a rush job to get it ready for the B&O Museum show.  i have come to the conclusion that no matter how detail oriented you are about doing a scene, something will bit you in the buttocks.  for me, i have a small retaining wall i glued in place made of moulded styrene.  i figured i could "easily" come back and make the block wall look more real later. 

long story short, i have tried, with all efforts in vain, to get the wall to look how i want it.  i can't remove it and now i'm thinking i could just glue more wall to the existing one after i get it looking how i want.

Hack the hell out of that thing to get it out and go with a nice cast plaster stone retaining wall!

Take some pictures and let the doctors take a look.  I am sure we can prescribe an appropriate cure.

And that's the reason why it takes me forever to start working on anything.

it's not so bad, but it's not as "easy" as i had hoped.  come out to the Scale show at Timonium this weekend and laugh at the wall ;)
