Mickael’s been in touch again (his last post is here).
Enclosed you will find 1 of my tunnels with a waterfall that I designed to be taken apart in case of a derailment inside the tunnel.
The top lifts off on both tunnels to allow access in case of derailment. My hands and arms are to big to fit all the way into the tunnels when I designed them so an alternative had to be designed.
Got bored with the layout design and wanted to add an additional underpass for the trains.
Put simulated ivy growing up the wall except underneath the rock overhang. Some pictures that I found in real life had nothing growing under the overhang (shadow of the rock) while others had some dead plants.
Went back and placed Ivy growing on the wall all the way down.
Again, thank you for all that you do to help all Railroad modelers from old to young.
Now on to something completely different.
I thought I’d have a go because they seem so expensive to me, and I wondered whether I could create a range that was much more affordable, just like the print-out-scenery.
Here’s a small pic of the first one (just click on it to enlarge it):
Anyhow, turns out there are a lot of helpful folk out there – the comment that came up most was a better size would be 18″ by 144″ (the first one was only 12″ inches high). So I have changed that now.
I never realised how easy they were to print. Just put the file on to a CD or memory stick, take it to any office stationers (Kinko / Office Max) and print it out on a smooth, self adhesive, vinyl with UV inks and a matte finish.
Anyhow, there you go, if you’d like to grab this back drop, you can grab it here for just $7.
If you’d like to comment on it, or give me ideas for the next one please do let me know.
That’s all for today folks. A big thanks to Mickael.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to take that first step to go from day dreams to actually building, just like Mickael did.
