Building a Western Boomtown Part 1: Groundwork


Howdy folks! Let’s build a Wild West boomtown! I’m jumping in with both boots on my 1880’s boomtown based on Knott’s Ghost Town and the real silver mining town of Calico. In this first installment, I lay the groundwork for the town with a road and some scenic rockwork built from XPF foam and Sculptamold. I also talk briefly about the12 volt DC power that will be used to light and animate the town’s structures.

Thanks for watching, amigos!
