Creating a believable road surface in 1:35
The making of the road for the Noordhoek POW diorama
Before I started with the road surface, I glued course (HO scale ballast) gravel on the shoulder using matt white glue.
(photo 1) Spread a layer of contact adhesive onto the surface to be "asphalted"
(photo 2) Whilst the contact adhesive is still tacky, spread a layer of course gravel over it and firmly roll it down with a hard rubber roller.
Allow the glazing medium to dry for at least 24 hours.
Mix the top coat from of a finer gravel mixed with matt glazing medium and Tamiya NATO black. Spread this on top in a thin layer. Remember that shoulder break!
If you want to simulate pot holes or surface damage, now is the time to create these by leaving some substrate exposed.
