Last year my wife and I went to Japan and fell in love with the place, especially the railways. So, time for a new layout. I have the trains and track (bought in Japan and Hong Kong recently) and today I picked up the timber. I'm intending to raise my personal bar with this layout and produce something decent. Bonus star Wars kit included.
Backscene time. I'm painting this in oils but will do a few more practice paintings before I commit. The hill shapes need changing and I need to work on the colours (ignore the dirty cloud in particular). I'm not much of a painter but think I can make this work. It is really just to give the scene a bit of depth. It shouldn't be too detailed/busy because this draws attention from the modelling.
