    I continue with road experiment. The prototypical road looks like this:

    I used lower grade sand and two slightly different techniques. I belive the results are more satisfactory:

    What's the brand of the 2CV Citroën automobile ? As a former 1:1 scale sample owner, I'd like to purchase one in Z !

    2CV Citroen is 3D printed at Shapeways.
    My model was from designer's shop which does not exist on Shapeways any more but you may contact Pablo from Spain: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/evolutiondesignes?li=pb
    There is no 2CV listed in Z scale on Shapeways but I think he can make it available.

    That look good to! the smaller might pack tight enough to give you a smoother surface! Your real road looks as if the rock was laid in a pattern of some kind. Can't wait to see the road on the module.
