Once the track was finished and operating I began mocking up some structures. Working in the larger scale buildings are rather easy. I mocked up the buildings with foam board. Once I was satisfied with the design of a building I used cardstock (usually from cereal boxes) to make siding, trim, shingles etc. I tend to measure very little preferring to draw a line by eye and cut out using regular ol' scissors. Parts attached mostly with elmers glue or CA if part has to dry fast. I paint mostly with acrylic artist paints as they are cheap and there are infinite color possibilities. I use them on everything - scenery, buildings, engines, rolling stock and people.
