Excellent both!

Where does the "mountain" scenery  come from in the Aerie?  I could use something like that in next year's LPL.   (Pays to plan ahead.   ;) )

Scratch-built...essentially I use pine bark for the rock face. It is amazing how much it looks like rock when your dry brush it the the right color. The core cliff section was a simple, cheap, wooden tray bought at the local craft store and turned upside down and glued to a piece of styrene. Lots of hot glue to attach the bark pieces, railroad ballast in the spots between the pieces, spray paint black, then begin dry brushing.

I can't believe I never created a tutorial, though you can see them here:
http://leadlegionaries.blogspot.com/2013/09/ohio-frontier-aflame-at-advance-colors.html

And I talk about my "step-down" pieces here:

Thanks for the compliments, folks!

Thanks Mike for the descriptions of your scenery building/making.  I'm in awe!
