My only complaint with the skeleton is that the lower jaws need to be longer so they protrude... but it's terrain, it doesn't need to make perfect anatomical sense :P I would have liked to add a small mound of exposed knuckle bones too, but I can't be bothered to shape that from foam lol

All the terrain is mounted at this point, foam and drywall has been sanded where appropriate, and I added small wads of paper mache around the base of the Monorail uprights. I also gave all of the surfaces of the Monorail uprights a very light, rough glaze of drywall compound to give them a bit of a weathered concrete appearance.

I still need to find a relatively cheap source of resin I can use for the water features (preferably one that can be worked with a bit, as I want to add a waterfall), and add a few minor details - like a single rail along the middle of the monorail track, and maybe an electrical conduit along its side.
