Scratch built - stairs from foam

I already owned some SKaledale stairs suitable for joint different levels, they had originally sold for circa 7 pounds uk but were trading on evil bay for 26 pounds uk! Far too rich, I looked around others were available but nothing took my fancy, so I thought if I can make scenery I can make stairs, and looked for a suitable piece of insulation foam

It was so quick from concept to. manufacture I did not even record it, the foam a scalpel a knife a metal ruler all dne by eye, measuring would have made a better product but it was good enough
then I set about colouring it, a thinned watery grey
