Description of Advanced Techniques for Realistic Scenery (Vol 1):

After 30 years and more than 70 articles in the model railroad press, we finally get to see Paul’s scenery work up close and “in person.” Look over his shoulder as he adds scenery to a large section of his well known Sn3 layout, the Pelican Bay Railway and Navigation Company. Starting with bare hardshell, watch and listen as he adds wet rock castings and stains them with realistic earth tones. Go on location with Paul as he searches for useable ground cover and natural tree-making material. Watch closely as he builds highly realistic fir and deciduous trees. With his detailed explanation you can easily build these yourself. Paul carefully explains how to place trees, bushes and other secondary growth on the layout. Then he develops a townsite, dirt roads, and other scenery features. Finally, Paul takes you on a tour of this truly fantastic model railroad, describing the concept and design he followed in creating one of the best known model railroads in the country. Beginner or expert, you’ll learn a great deal from one of the hobby’s finest scenery builders.
