Ü Planning Scenery for Your Model Railroad: How to Use Nature for Modeling Realism ½ Download by ↠´ Tony Koester This has a number of very useful ideas and methods and I think it is well worth the money I would recommend it It covers a number of approaches to scenery and makes a good addition to one s library on terrain and lanscape building.
Be ware that this is Planning Scenery and not necessarily how to do the scenery There are a few suggestions about the actual doing but mostly there are references to old issues of Model Railroader, etc This book was published in 2007 and there are many references to web sites but so far out of 9 I tried only one is still active If you are a Serious capital S model railroader this is good prototype info If you just like the way the kits look and enjoy including them on your layout you ll probably feel guilty by they time you finish this book If you plan on trying to purchase all the manuals he refers to have your credit card handy.
This Volume Shows Readers How To Model Natural Land Forms, Crops, Forests, Water Features, And Explains The Critical Differences Between Similar Land Or Water Features, And What Resources Can Help Modelers Achieve A Natural Looking Scene From Each Area Effects Such As Rock Strata, Water Forms, Field Crops, And Space Saving Industries Are Incorporated In Modeling Projects And Shown To Better Teach Readers How To Model With Greater Realism As the name of this title suggests, planning scenery is vital to establish a feel for any layout that you are attempting to build Generally in the past you would construct a landscape and then populate it with structures and details and end up with a nice looking scene But would that scene actually be consistent with what you are trying to model This book looks and guides you through the process of determining the correct amount of prototype scenery that you need and by selectively compressing the scene, you will build a far believable and context correct representation of the locale you are trying to model The subject matter is often thought provoking enough to make you reconsider your direction and or I bought this book for my husband for Christmas it was exactly what he was looking for to help in planning his model railroad He s been building model buildings for years, and this will help him decide on the placement of these structures on a layout and how to build the layout itself He s a real perfectionist and wants to make sure that the scenery looks as realistic as possible.
Enjoyed this book and offers different ways and ideas of where to add scenery and explains how to do it Lots of real pictures and how to simulate them into model form Another great addition into my model railroad how to library I would recommend this for just starting or middle of the road modeler.
I haven t built anything yet, but the info is very helpful in planning any miniature scene Another great book I wish I had ordered sooner
excellent book worth reading thanks good item
