Judging from the prototype photo, just set the posts and tell everyone the fence is there!

That is tempting...

Yep. Dauphin. lol.

Awesome.

My five final/summary shots. This is as far as I intend to take it.

Honestly, I only have one suggestion. Use this instead for a label: http://prr.railfan.net/cgi/makesign3.cgi?string=DAUPHIN&type=key&mode=savable

The rocks look a tad monochromatic...  Maybe a light dusting of some weather?

or....

Wait for it...

They were a tad more colorful at first, but when I applied the clear sealer, it dulled them down. Should have known better. Also, it appears the clear flat I used has had some sort of strange reaction with the paints and/or the rubber underneath, as it all turned shiny. But I'm not starting over; it'll have to do for now.

I had to spray all my rock work with Dullcote from a bottle with an airbrush, spraying from the can always gives me shiney rocks.

You could probably flatten it out and bring up some highlights with a simple acrylic wash... You know, like muddy water!

It's also fun to have some juvenile fun with that generator too.

Krylon. Same as the base rock color paints.
