I am intrigued by Z scale and am thinking of trying to build a small layout, having no meaningful prior experience with scenery. The Woodland Scenics SubTerrain system seems to be an approach which might not be too difficult and yet which might give me a greater sense of engagement and accomplishment than buying a preformed layout base. My thinking is that I'd acquire the SubTerrain Manual for background reading and info, then perhaps attempt their N scale scenery kit which makes a small diorama. I hope that building the kit would give me the background and practice needed to have a reasonable chance at successfully later building a complete smaller layout. Or, it might let me know that I lack the patience and motor skills to go further, before I make any additional investment! Has anyone without prior modelling experience taken this approach and, if so, would you recommend it?
