Synopsis: Rolling hills, rustic barns, and charming city streets all these things and more can be created in perfect miniature with the guidance of veteran model- railroad buff Chris Ellis. His detailed instructions cover planning backdrops; building basic terrain; painting backgrounds and creating the illusion of perspective; texturing foliage and trees; modeling water; depicting rocky surfaces; and building tunnels and bridges. A complete guide to creating realistic settings for model-train layouts, this guide also shows how affordable scenics” from the celebrated Hornby Company provide the finishing touch.

About the Author: Chris Ellis has been a steam and model railway enthusiast since his school days. He has nearly fifty years of experience as a writer and editor, having started out in the early 1960s as editor of Airfix Magazine. In 1980 he founded Model Trains, which he continues to edit today as Model Trains International. He has also written numerous railway and scenic modelling books along with articles on military, aviation and transport subjects.
