When you compare your model to the actual section of blasted rock you posted (as opposed to the more extreme examples Dallas posted), it seems merely that your perception (from memory) was slightly exaggerated. But it was close enough that you still may be able to salvage the original attempt and make it "perfect".

This has been a fascinating exercise. It shows how our minds sometimes process information. In this case you remembered the general concept more than the subtleties. I've done the same thing many times.

One other lesson it teaches, and one I learned the hard way: If you have a question about whether you should change something ... then you should change it! I can't tell you how many times I've rewritten something (for example) after wondering whether I expressed myself properly.

How many times did you re-write your last post?
Just curious 'cause you missed a typo!  Wink

... au contraire, if you follow another idiom saying: "If in doubt, leave it out!"  Roll Eyes

Actually, I think each leads to the same result; often "change" means "delete". And both reinforce "less is more". -- Russ

... nah! ... actually methinks the posting I made is a good example itself for my quotation of "if in doubt, leave it out" - it was - at first thought - meant as kinda witty remark, but at second thought it was completely needless and nonproductive - should think twice next time ... Undecided

I think it will look fine once you ballast and add dirt and shrubbery and grasses, etc.  I am also working on fast and easy ways to do some rock like you are to get the gaps between roadbeds filled all around my little layout.
