    Anyone have any suggestions as to an effective technique for modelling sedimentary rock formations in N scale? I've used the ceiling tile technique with some success in HO scale, but I'm not sure how well this would work in a smaller scale.

    All suggestions welcome.

    Model Railroader ran an article a couple of years back on using acoustic tiles in layers to make stratified rock cut. Maybe someone here has a copy.
    Maybe I do, but I have to look for it.

    Thanks Andrew --- that is exactly the look I am going for. I think I will make a mockup to experiment with your approach before I go to the layout.

    88 --- I had forgotten that MRR mag had run an article on the ceiling tile tchnique. I checked the mag index and it was in Sept 02. They also had a similar article in Apr 81 (my old mags are finally going to come in handy!!).

    Thanks gentlemen.
