HORNBY SCENIC RAILWAY MOD Paperback / softback

Description

Any model railway layout can be enhanced with the effective use of scenery and accessories.

Chris Ellis examines the range of ready-made scenic accessories available to modellers,and also explains how to make your own scenic structures.

Tips and techniques for adapting and weathering such accessories are included, along with clear step-by-step instructions that explain how to create rolling hills, trackside buildings and even lakes and rivers from a variety of materials, whether bought from modelling shops or using discarded product packaging.

The book's sections include: planning backdrops and scenic settings; building basic terrain; painting backgrounds and creating the illusion of distance and perspective; texturing vegetation, foliage and trees; modelling water; depicting rocky surfaces such as cliffs, scree and waterfalls; incorporating civil engineering (tunnels and bridges) and adapting Skaledale and other accessories for use in personal dioramas.

A useful appendix also contains details of popular modelling materials, stockists and suppliers, useful reference works and other research sources.
