    No , I just worked each piece on my fingers for a little and put a slight bend in each one then started glueing. I just bent by eye and then made the end approch to match from sheet styrene.
    Thanks , Mike

    Mike - great layout! I like the desert and you have captured it beautifully :) How did you make the highway and what did you use for the yellow line?

    The road is made of very fine sand blasting media glued in place and painted black. The striping was done with colored pencils and a french curve.
    Thanks , Mike

    Very nice Mike. Every aspect of what you have built there looks appealing. From the Front fascia to the skyboard, it all looks wonderful.

    Great job

    Wow...some really nice scenes wrapped up on one layout. Really well done! I like the building choices, road work, and those Santa Fe diesels look great. Great job!!
