I use hardibacker or the Hardi- exterior sheathing which has a stucco like appearance finish.:) I paint them brown or green or whatever color I need, attaching the structure to the base plate using a good silicone selant and then mop diluted Titebond 3 on them to put grit or stone dust or stripwood ...whatever is needed to complete the scene.

We had 35mph sustained and up to 50 mph winds gusts yesterday,/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crazy.gif and I like to use landscape fabric pins to anchor the base plate to keep the buildings in Texas and not rolling or flying away to OZ./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif Just drill the HB about 3/4" in with a 5/32" bitin a couple of places and put one side of the pin thru and tap down. It's worked so far....../DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/satisfied.gif
