Brian’s been back in touch with some great tips on creating some model railroad scenes.
You may want to refresh your memory about his 6×12 N scale.
This time he shows us how many ‘small scenes’ there are in his layout – it’s a wonderful video:
“Hi again, first of all have to say your site is powerful, that last video I sent you up around 2K views already!
So… at the risk of wearing out my welcome, here’s another.
Goals with this one are two-fold.
1. To show the importance of small scenes on a model railroad. Viewers will note the trains are simply for background. It’s what’s in front of the trains that are the stars. The small scenes.
2. This video was shot on my iPhone and edited with iMovie. Something we can all do, no need to be hesitant, this technology is designed to empower us. So let’s do it.
Viewers will note the footage is shot with the phone horizontally instead of vertically and I also used “rail fan” views for everything.
Thanks again my friend,
Now on to Jerry:
“I have a layout I’ve been working on or started on in 2010… My wife gave me permission to actually take over a spare bedroom and after a while took down a wall between the bedroom and the living room.
I built a double decker layout and started building a helix but halfway through building I had an accident at work and almost severed my spinal column doing by a dislocated spine misalignment.
Pulling too many pallets of water and windshield washing fluid. Didn’t have it fused but had a rod inserted next to the spine screwed into it. The layout went on hold for at least six to eight months, then I found out I couldn’t finish the helix because my reach and bending were limited.
That’s still where I’m at today. Helix is not finished.. I can’t get help… Only comments that came back is “I’ll buy your rolling stock and track to help you!”
Yeah right! If that was my intention all the time! Idiots!
So it has been left unfinished for years…
A big thanks to Brian and Jerry.
I love they way Brian has created his ‘small scenes’ – please do leave a comment below if you’d like to share your thoughts on this one.
That’s all for today folks.
But please do keep ’em coming – you lot seem to have gone to sleep, it’s all very quiet this end…
