Con­crete so­lu­tion

Model Rail (UK) - - Layout Masons Lane -

Mod­el­ling rails set into con­crete is never an easy task. But, to­gether with the pro­pri­etor of Model Rail­way Scenery, Neil has found a very sim­ple so­lu­tion. He ex­plains: “The clay or plas­ter method isn’t par­tic­u­larly quick or easy. So I ap­proached the pro­pri­etor of Scale Model Scenery, Justin No­ble, and asked if he would laser-cut some wood for the job. “Af­ter send­ing him the mea­sure­ments he tri­alled the method for me, and it worked per­fectly. It’s now avail­able on his web­site you sim­ply lay it ei­ther side of the rails and layer tex­tured pa­per on top.” The con­crete style pa­per comes al­ready weath­ered, but Neil ap­plies a lit­tle black weath­er­ing pow­der us­ing a fin­ger to pro­duce fork­lift skid marks. “Just re­mem­ber to only use dry pow­ders,” he notes. “Liq­uids will soak into the pa­per and make it crin­kle.” Prod­uct: Con­crete Hard­stand­ing Kit Avail­abil­ity: www.scale­mod­elscenery.co.uk
