What do you think is the best way to make roads for a model railroad in ho scale.

Best answer:

Answer by Steven D
City streets and roads aren’t too hard, you have to remember to make the pot holes too! I use a thinned wash of Grimy black paint and some well sifted ballast. Roads are like railroad beds only wider. If you look at the local roads and take pictures, you will be able to break them down into their elements.

Model railroading lasts a lifetime.
