Comments: Cast-rubber scenery details have been around for several years now, but most model rock formations that are found in nature. Cripplebush has introduced two castings that model urban industrial settings.

The urban outcrop measures 5½" x 31½" and the oil drums have a foot print of 31/4" x 7". Both can be trimmed with scissors or a utility knife. You can use a hot glue gun or a rubber compatible adhesive to attach the castings to your layout.

The oil drums are modeled after a scene along the present-day Mohawk River in New York. The latex rubber works well to capture the fine detail of the soil and debris along the river bank.

The urban outcrop is a scene found in the industrial section of many cities and depicts retaining walls made of poured concrete, cinder blocks, and red brick.

Both the urban outcrop and the oil drums are minimally painted. You can detail the castings further with acrylic paints.

These rubber castings provide a quick and easy way to add realistic industrial scenery to your layout.
