Adding a backdrop to a model railroad goes a long way to bringing realism to your layout. On this DVD you'll learn how to make a backdrop from styrene sheet and simple dimensional lumber. We then show you two different methods for painting hills, trees, clouds, and other scenic features on our Olympia and Thin Branch project railroads. And the best part is you don't have to be an artist to get good results from either technique!
