New American Civil War Diorama / Display Base Pt 9 - A Little Road Work

I haven't done much with the Civil War display base but did manage to fill the mis-placed crater I talked about last week, sand down the filler, then lay on some ground cover. The road material kind of goes outside the bounds of the road but a few sprinkles of scenery 'grass' will remedy that - ain't no biggie. I also installed door bumpers underneath the display to set it up from the surface about an inch. I was going to put ready-made furniture feet underneath but the smalles I could find was 4" H and that was just too much. The last steps (whenever I get around to them) will be to frame the edges and make a backdrop. Until then, as always, Enjoy!

The road is a tad wide but the crater is now covered.

These are rubber bumpers designed to keep doors from slamming into the wall. I'm using them as 'feet' for the display.
