Cheap Roads and Parking Lots
I needed to make some roads and had to do it on the cheap.
I needed to make some roads and a parking lot or two and didn't have the money to buy even the cheep ones in the hobby store.
So I was looking at some scrap asphalt shingles I had and when I turn them over to the smooth side it looked like the asphalt they put on the road and it's easy to cut to fit. If you know were they are building a house or repairing a roof and you ask most likely they will be more then happy to let you take the scrap.
For center lines I used Bic WiteOut correction pen.
The really nice thing is the shingles they stay flat even at the ends. Just something to think about.
