Kevin’s backdrop

“Hi Alastair,

Here is a few photos of Amberton town scene under construction,the back scenes are scratch built using Plastikard and the viaduct is also scratch built which goes through the town.

The two blocks of flats have been raised from ten floors to fourteen floors they stand at 2 feet tall,the football stadium is made from the same materials has the rest of the model.

“Hi Al

I have a couple of photos of my layout not finished, is it ever,.

Regards

Neil”


And lastly, if Z scale is your thing, have a look at this on ebay. Wow!


That’s all this time, folks.

Please do keep ’em coming.

Thanks for your comments on the ebay cheat sheet – latest one is here.

Best

Al

  1. That is awsome! What would be really good – details of how you designed and constructed your viaduct and buildings and size of your layout. I am always interested in how people design and build their models so what are the dimensions and methods used, that sort of ting.Thanks for sharing this.

  2. really impressive especially the block of flats,like charlie says details of how you designed and constructed it would be good.

  3. Great stuff, would like to see more of Neil’s layout if
    possible. Looking great 🙂

  4. Great photos!

  5. I like your back drop

  6. YOUR BACKDROPS ARE VERY NICE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

  7. I like the switching layout with the freight and passenger tracks in the rear of the layout.
    This makes the switching of the industries easier.

  10. I really like the track layout on the second last photo thanks.

  11. Excellent looking high rises…….gorgeous…nice job

  13. I think to finish the stadium scene, you need a bunch of miniature “lager louts” and ‘blokey’ hooligans. Scatter them onto the tracks.for added realism. Great layout, and gmreat work on the buildings.

  14. Well I’ll be damn!
    After 50+ years of model railroading I never thought of using a track Wye for access to a two track building or engine house as Neil apparently has done in the overhead picture #3. That sure solves a few problem.
    Thanks Neil!

  15. As usual Al’s posts never leave me disappointed. The tips have been very instrumental in the construction of my layout. My thanks go out to Alastair, Dave and others that continue to bring excitement into this great hobby. Keep up the good work. Backdrops are so very important to finish off a great layout.
    Thanks everyone.
