The landscape through which railways run is often the inspiration and reason why people choose to model a particular line. Therefore creating a realistic setting in which to operate your railway is an essential aspect of modelling, yet it is often overlooked or left until the last moment. Creating authentic and believable scenery without spending a fortune or buying it 'ready made' is a skill that, with patience and understanding, can be achieved.
Model landscape expert Tony Hill has been modelling railways for over thirty years. A carpenter by trade, he has been demonstrating and teaching his landscape modelling skills at model railway shows since the early 1980s, has written numerous articles on the subject and undertakes commissions for bespoke trees and dioramas. This is his second book on the subject.
