That's right, even though the real location doesn't have mountains, and barely has hills west of it, we are putting a mountain up... whether it stays up, that's another story. We're trying Dave Frary's method of using a cardboard strip lattice, to make a lightweight mountain frame. Pixes below.
The original objective, was to have a mountain fill up a big, open space at the back of the layout. The 'mountain' would somewhat flat plateau, to allow my wife to build and put n-scale structures up on the mountain. That didn't seem to work out very well. One problem, is that the backdrop is coved and I think that makes it sit funny. I think this will be redone, but the Boss needs to see it in person, before I do anything else. More to follow.
