A model railway layout is greatly enhanced by a good back scene. If a modeller is prepared to go to great lengths to achieve realism in the locomotives, rolling stock and buildings, this should be carried through to the scenics. This book is a comprehensive guide to creating convincing back scenes for both railway and diorama modellers.

Topics covered include:

  • Getting started, and choosing the right materials
  • Rural and urban back scenes
  • Traditional painted back scenes
  • Producing back scenes with camera and/or computer
  • The correct use of forced perspective and scale reduction
  • Getting the transition from layout to back scene right
  • Lighting and presentation
