Plus, it seems a shame to waste all the baseboard behind the backscene, could you not angle the backscene from front left to back right (as viewed above) to allow more room for scenics ? (the curved track could be in a cutting) ?


 

Dont blame Ian  , Stu!!!  He is just doing what a particularly awkward customer has asked him to do. No prizes for guessing who that is !

All will become clear in time but I will just  say they are not tunnel mouths and the back scene has been positioned that way for a reason .

Watch this space ;-)

I guessed it was for you Richard, and I appreciate you have your own design plan - I was just musing what I might have been tempted to do.

Well guv, the openings in the backscene will all be hidden by buildings, trees and such like. As for the spare space - it ain't that big and I suspect it will get filled with spare stock.

Oops - Richard beat me to it and I've blown his secret :oops:

No problem Stu .

In fact it hides the control panel - hence the rather large size.

It is coated with low-relief building kits from JoWi Modellbahn-Hintergrund.

They come on a CD - you can't download them like Scalescenes - and are produced from photos that have been suitably doctored.

They're not cheap Ian ! :shock:

The "Industrial" one looks good.  Is the "backscene" bit just an illustration of what can be achieved, is it the original source of the buildings or does it come on the CD ready to print off ?

Each CD contains a selection of low relief buildings, some sky and some flat buildings to go on the backscene in HO, TT, N and Z scales. And they are a lot cheaper than the equivalent Kibri, Vollmer or Faller kit!

You get all the gauges on the one CD Ian ? :shock:  I didn't realise that.  In your position, it makes a lot of sense as you presumably build in all gauges.

For me, whilst as you say, they're cheaper than the "normal" German offerings, they still looked a little on the high side compared with say Scalescenes.

Actually, I might retract that last statement because you may get more buildings for your money. 

How "easy" are they to build ? i.e are they quick ?
