Two weeks ago we introduced you to the "how to" for the ginormous GenCon2007 terrain board. This week's article is the second installment of that excellent tutorial.
The third and final installment will be in two weeks time, so be sure to come back and keep informed.

Another excellent installment, thank you. I am not so sure I believe the deceptively simple concept of the walkways though. :)

Lol! Its one of those things: When I went back to my pics I had approaching 200mb of photos of the WIP board. BUT, not a single good one of the scaffolding being assembled. In fact, not a single pic of a frame before the planking was put on.
To be honest: This is because it went so quickly. I didn't pause, just put up the frames. By time I finished, the first were dry. Then went right through planking in an afternoon.
I definately spent more time agonizing over exactly where to place each one, so models could move around the board freely then I did assembling them.
But yes, its that simple, really.
1) Cut the craft sticks to the desired length
2) Build a rickety framework of Bass
3) Hot glue the planks on
4) Spread Water/Glue over it all
5) (when dry) check stability and add supports
6) Repeat 4-5
The photos of the painted hills at the end of the article give you a good view of the framework.
Here's another photo for ya, if it helps:
Feel free to ask any questions that pop into mind.

It certainly sounds simple enough. I guess I will just have to get up the guts to finally start a much smaller board and see where it takes me. It looks more understandable from the pic you provided as opposed to the fully painted which just blows my mind. Thank you again.
