Thanks for looking and speaking up.  If you notice somthing boneheaded I'm doing please mention it...   It helps me spot things I can improve on.   Posting the sequential  WIP allows me to go back and review my past efforts, and shows the level of effort I involve.

Awesome work, love the chance to see it from beginning to end, with even the planning stage represented!

You are quite welcome

On to  MOAR PICS!!!

Just a quick question. I am guessing that is Pink Insulation foam you can pick up from like Home Depot or Lowes. What are you using to cut it just a utility knife?

Correct it is standard insulation foam.  to cut it I've been using multiple tools.

An woodland scenics hotwire cutter,  A serrated bread knife,  as well as a utility knife.

Also I've been using Liquid Nails as the primary adhesive and gap filler.

Basic level of the trenches has been completed.

I'm going to be making some slightly different panels to use for the 2nd level trench lining.
