More layout pics from Kaustav

Kaustav has kindly sent in more pics of his fabulous layout. If you missed them first time round, they are here.

“Thank you Al! I am glad that everybody liked the layout.

As a ready material, here are some pics of my latest build – the main freight-house of Wrightsville Port, along with a ‘Magic of Black ‘n’ White’ photo! Hope you like it.

For all my future progresses, I will make sure to send you the details.

Once again, thank you for the space! 🙂


“Al, the attached photo is how I decided to “customize” the print out building a bit to give it a little more depth and texture and personalize it to my layout (which is a long way from complete). I mounted the print out to foam board making the concrete caps (painted balsa) easy to attach. With the imaginations I’ve seen out there, the possibilities with print out scenery are endless…


You can download the ‘print out factory’ Keith used, here.

And now a question for you all: how come you are all be so shy on the tips? Come on – if you’ve got one, please share!

Don’t forget the ‘ebay cheat sheet – every penny counts.

  30. question: Love the waterfront scene. Has anyone got an idea as to how to make waves on water scenes ? i’ve seen waterfall scenes and white water over rocks etc. by roughing up the epoxy resin before it cures, but I can’t think of how to make ripples or waves on a water scene.

  31. Hi Al.Any way you can add a ZOOM feature?Love to see closeups of the work being done
