Just scored a 20 pound box of plaster cloth at Jerry's Artarama for.... wait for it... $49.99. It retails for $114.35 and is available online for $62.39. But right down the road in West Hartford, it's on sale. And I didn't have to pay for shipping.
This is going to come in especially handy if my first bike race gets canceled this Sunday. I have a lot of hills to cover, and not with my bike.
I've made some more progress on the layout, thanks to help from Roman and Bill. Hope to post some pics soon. (It's even more of a) Happy Friday (now)!!
