“I was lucky enough to see the world at a young age, always loved Holland and the people were wonderful.
Most of the rails in Europe are new and is a major form of transportation throughout…
I started Amsterken 4 years ago, most of the structures have been kit-bashed to resemble buildings in Amsterdam….
My pride is centraal station witch started as 4 Kibri city hall building kits. Made a roof real shingles and tried to copy the details on the station….
Made all base from foam and covered it with body filler, before it dried i put a soft mold of bricks and when it hardened i pealled the mold off to reveal bricks like the ones in the canals…
I put blacklights behide back drop left a space so light could show through.
Painted walls blue and put some red lights for sun, also used paper which looks great with blk light . I run Roco track and trains all digital, Faller cars system, RC boats for the real water.
I have taken most of the layout down so i can put bladders in for real water, I built modules so its easy to take down, just in case I move.
Kids have the best time with the fast clock for in / out bound trains bus schedules and rc boats…
Till next time Amsterken out…. Thanks Alastair…
A big thanks to Ken – a wonderful layout. A joy to see Godzilla in there too.
Now here’s a video – all made from his print out scenery. In fact, this download, gives you the very same town.
Please keep ’em coming.
