Well this tutorial will not include any pictures of doing a crossing, but after i finish this post on doing regular roads, i will do another post in this thread explaining how i did my crossing in the picture above with Woodland Scenics Smooth-It. The 2 different sizes of Putty Knifes in addition to the lengthened spreader, make the road laying much easier, i would highly suggest getting both sizes of Putty Knifes. After you have the path of the road marked out, take the Paving Tape, peal some of the backing off so the sticky side is exposed, and lay it along the lines of the road that you drew out.
I would also suggest that if you are doing a long and wide road, break it up into sections. Take your container with the lid and pour some Powdered Smooth-It mix from the Smooth-It Container into your mixing container.
After you have finished smoothing the first coat between the paving tape and making sure that no layout base is visible between the 2 strips of Paving Tape, let it dry. You can also clean up the excess Smooth-It that spilled over the Paving Tape on the first section. I would also like to point out that it is at this time where you should clean your tools and make sure your Putty Knifes are dry so they do not rust. After you scrap off any raised areas from the first pour, mix up a second batch of Smooth-It. Take your large Putty Knife, scoop some of the mixture out of the mixing container, and plop it at one end of the road. I chose to paint my Highway with a mixture of Woodland Scenics Asphalt Top Coat Paint and regular White Paint from a craft store.
Around the sides of the tracks, layer up the paving tape so that it is flush with the top of the rails. If you do not already have a layer of Smooth-It down leading to the tracks, i would suggest doing this first to make the first pour for the grade crossing easier. The layers of Paving Tape will act as sort of a ramp for the spreader to help you build the grade up to the rail tops on either side of the tracks. After the Road has dried for about an hour, remove the Paving Tape from in and around the tracks and rails. After the first coat has completely dried, you can run a train car through it if you want to. After this, take your small Putty Knife and scrap off any pavement that might be sticking up above the rails still. Fill in the Flangeways you dug out in the first pour, this will patch up anything that might have gotten chipped away.
The third coat should be done just like the second coat, except this time do not fill in the Flangeways completely. At this point, after the third coat the grades around the tracks should be looking pretty smooth.
I dont think that i every even read the WS instructions fully, just for that reason, they were pretty awful.

The cup of water is also important, this is your cleaning cup, where you clean the spread and putty knifes. I would suggest taking your Steel Ruler and actually drawing out a path for the road with the Sharpie or whatever your using. If your doing a regular 4 lane highway, make sure your spreader reaches all the way across to the other side of the road where the other strip of Paving Tape is, this is very important.
You can draw all the lines for the road but only lay Paving Tape in sections, this will be alot easier in the long run. You really have to guess how much you will need judging on how long and how wide your road is.
Mixing to much at once will cause the mixture to not mix completely and when you pour it you will get chunks that will not smooth out when you use the spreader.
If you have chunks that are making streaks in the pavement, take your small Putty Knife and with the corner remove the chunks. Do just like you would do if this did not have a grade crossing, drawling the road around the tracks. If i remember correctly it takes 2 or 3 layers of paving tape to reach the top of the rail so its flush. Make sure you smooth it out with your small Putty Knife in between the rails so that the pavement is not above the rails. If it jumps or sticks or anything, take a sharp hobby knife and pry looks the material that is causing whatever problem you might be having. It can be a little tricky around the grades to the rails to get it smooth, but if you work with it for a bit, you will eventually get it. After, wait about 10 minutes and repeat with the NMRA Flangeways Tool as above in the first pour. You just want to fix and small bumps or dips or cracks that might still be in between the rails. As i said, it takes some patients and a lot of working with the large Putty knife to get it right. I just mixed Woodland Scenics Asphalt Top Coat with regular White Paint from the craft store to get a Gray color. No complicated calculations to make, no expensive power tools to buy and no dusty mess to clean up.The revolutionary System consists of sturdy, durable and lightweight foam components that take the guesswork out of designing and building a layout, and Tools and Adhesives specifically designed to work with the System. Curves can be difficult, but if you keep a consistent width of the road through the curve, it will come out just fine. If i does not, either modify your Spreader to make it longer or lay another strip of Paving Tap down the center of the 2 strips of Paving Tape you have already laid for the roads edges. Once you mix the mixture, you cannot save it, you have to either use it or throw it away because it dries, even with the lid on.
You want to mixture to be to about the consistency of cake mix (for lack of a better explanation). I pour some of the mixture in, take my small Putty Knife and push the mix to the edges of the Paving Tape.


If the Smooth-It is too high on the large Putty Knife, take the smaller one and scrap it down to the edge of the large one.
Remember to take the small Putty Knife and get rid of any raised parts before you do the final coat. Repeat this process until you have nice and clean Flangeways, making sure to wipe off the Smooth-It that is removed from the Track Gauge Tool. If you get the right one, you just leave it in place when you're done with the pavement and your curb and sidewalk are already there, with some paint and weathering.
The spiral-bound Scenery Manual is loaded with various tips, techniques, ideas and instructions for using more than Woodland Scenics products to model realistic scenery. The SubTerrain Manual gives modelers detailed, fully illustrated instructions for constructing a layout.Watch the SubTerrain demonstration video here.
Also, some of the chunks might be stuck to the spreader, It is always good to clean of the spreader in the cup of water so you start smoothing with none of the mixture on the spreader again. If your road still needs more smoothing after this fourth coat, repeat until you are happy. It does not have to be perfect, but you don't want to much material to dry in the Flangeways that could interfere with the wheels. To avoid the emission of toxic fumes, we recommend using the Foam Cutter Bow & Guide on Woodland Scenics foam products only. If your roads are on a hill, you will want to mix it a little thicker, if on level ground, a little more water is just fine. Continue to work your way down the road, smoothing the Smooth-It between the Paving Tape, adding more where it is needed and removing any chunks that might be there.
If there still sticky, you might be able to re-use them on the next section, if not, just throw them away. It's work in progress.I originally started modeling when I was a kid, but now that I'm older and have the space, it is a permanent hobby.
After you pour the mixture in between the tape, take the spreader and start at the end of the road you began pouring the Smooth-It. REMEMBER, this coat is only the first coat, and a ROUGH coat at that, it does, by any means, have to be smooth at all.
You can also start to lay out the next section of road using the Paving Tape if you would like, just be careful not to mess up the previous laid section, a;though, it should be cured enough after an hour. We will be adding any future photos he sends to keep us updated on his layout progress, and we hope he sends plenty! If this happens, set it aside for a few minutes and let it dry some, then go back and mix it again. Start the spreader on the paving tape and LIGHTLY drag it across the tops of the Paving Tape Edges.
My father worked for the local Railway Services in South Africa and we travelled allot by train.My layout is HO scale, in a U shape approximately 5m x 3m x 4m - Era is from 1930's to 2000. The availability of product in South Africa is limited, but I travel internationally, so I try to buy what I can when abroad.
Also, The Company I work for is based in Indiana, so I always ask colleagues to bring me stuff if they travel here.This is my second layout, but my first time using Woodland Scenics.
So far, I have used your Tree Kits, Tree Armatures, Foliage, Ballast, various ground covers, Realistic Water, Pigments, Track-Bed, Accents and Figures, most recently Canoers, Windy Day Play and many more!
