Wit such an enthusiastic call for pictures, I feel forced to post some. But I'm not sure the enthusiasm will survive... .

As I said, there's still some horizontal planking required on the vertical foreground posts. There's also some work required to better detail the scenery in front of the shed. And I'm wondering whether I should add small boulders on the roofing...



And here is the casting of the mountain. Not everything was covered with it since I also want to have an area with earth, grass, shrubs and trees. The small areas of plaster on top of the ridge were simply leftovers applied with a brush. Rather than carving them with a screwdriver as one often does, I simply pressed another mold against it while it was still wet, which gave it a very satisfactory texture.

Frederic,

The snow shed looks great the way it is. As for the top I would add small rocks and debris, nothing too big.
