Cut Stone Culverts

As you can guess, this is Pennsy related. Does anyone make cut (not random) stone culverts?
Woodland Scenics makes the random stone, and Rix makes the cut stone, but only in HO.

That would be great. I'd rather not have to spend $18 + shipping from Walthers.

Chooch has one for $9.99
http://www.choochenterprises.com/html/8340_cut_stone_tunnel.html

Is that one good enough?

I have made molds from portals (because like you, I didn't want to spend all that money to make,
say, a dozen portals!)   using simple latex "Mold Builder" and then poured them using
Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty.   They came out great, and remained strong and chip free for years and years,
even after multiple times being removed and reinstalled on new layouts.

How about pouring a slab of plaster and carving your own?  That way you could easily make it fit the location, and, if you need a bunch of them, it would be cheaper.  Worst case, if you don't like the results, plaster is cheap. so you won't be out much.

I've never carved plaster before. What tools would one need?

You know, now that I think about it, I might have a place for a pair of those for the drain I have under my drill track.  I'll retroactively trade you some foam for them.  :ashat:

For carving cut stone into plaster all you really need is an X-acto or similar knife.  Scribe the lines freehand or with a ruler, depending on how neat you want them, then distress the rock faces to suit.  If you can find something with a rough surface that looks right, you can cast the plaster on that, and you'll already have the textured surface, but in any case bits and pieces of the surface will break off as you carve, giving rough edges and corners.
