How to Model Ultra Realistic Roads
In this video, I show you how to make model roads using plaster and paint. It is very easy to come up with realistic results with just a few simple steps. I have struggled with plaster roads in the past as I have never managed to get the plaster right. This time I used the Woodland Scenics’ learning kit and the foam tape provided sets the plaster at a perfect height. Once the base is down, painting and weathering bring it to life.

Don’t forget to add masking tape under the foam tape to stop it sticking too much. You can buy more of the foam tape as a draught excluder like this: https://amzn.to/35x2nT3
