Greetings from Ontario, Canada!

A couple of weeks ago I created a large brick retaining wall for my parade route. To create this retaining wall I needed to make sixty six castings from a single brick mold. To create this I used HYDROCAL® WHITE GYPSUM CEMENT and each casting had to be hand cut so the bricks would be level throughout the incline.

It is now week two so with the help from Woodland Scenics and Golden Paints I am here to present to you my weathered C tracks on my parade route and a picture of a weathered C track turnout. I applied fine grey ballast onto the tracks and then airbrushed burnt umber paint onto the rails.

Hi John,

I’m not one hundred percent sure as I borrowed the mold from my friend Roger.....

So I just asked him and he believes it’s made by Chooch Enterprise?
