Heinrich has been back in touch with his HO scale. This time he is busy painting model railroad backdrops.
“Good morning Al,
Heinrich here and I am back with updates from my layout, Tolbos.
Tolbos is located in South Africa, in the Karoo and the layout resembles 1950-1980.
The attached photos shows the backdrop being painted and the modules being installed. I will also be sending you videos in an separate email plus photos of the completed layout as it is at the moment.
My layout is 90% complete, with electronic signals and the control panel requiring installation.
A big thanks to Heinrich. Painting model railroad backdrops is a permanent feature, but they add so much to a layout, as you’ll read in the comments below.
I think they add so much to a layout because you really need to have a clear idea of your layout theme before you can start one.
And as I’m always saying, it’s the layouts with a theme from day one that always seem to turn out the best.
It’s wonderful to see your layouts take shape – here’s Hienrich’s last post if you missed it.
That’s all for today folks – please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if today is the day you start on your own layout.
