|That side street was ready for renovation. And I knew|
just how to do it.
But time marches on, and the aging paper has warped and wrinkled. In Part 1 I shared one method I devised to replace the paper with something more closely resembling asphalt. But there was still a lot of roadway to replace, and so I tried another solution.
Mini-highways offers an easy solution for long stretches of road. Their roadway comes with highway markings printed on it, and the back of the thickly-textured paper has cut lines printed at regular intervals. It seemed like a perfect solution, so I purchased a roll.
|The roads must roll! For this project, I used Mini Highways No. 402.|
|A definite improvement. I'll need a barrier at the end of the road, but scrub|
brush will do for now.
For the main drag, I'll have to go back to the paint-on-cork board method, but should the layout expand, I have additional roadway ready and waiting.
