Great buildings.

It looks like you have already enough for the city.

Great trackplan too.

I wish I had your painting skills.

Thanks!

Alwin, if you need some help with the backdrop, I might be able to...
We have our summer house in the Netherlands.:moose:

Michael, thanks for the offer but that is not necessary.

I use a photobackdrop now.

I live in 's-Heerenberg.

It is close (very close) to the German border.

Weathered the Blackstone C-19.

I used it to try some new paints and techniques.

Let there be light!

First LED strip in place in the train room.

I'll install double rows, the other angled 20 degrees to the wall.
Fill lighting will be with LED spotlights.
Can be okay in the end.





The switched power supplies I use are from Mean well, 12 V and 18 Amps.
They are adjustable between 11.4 V and 12.2 V.





The LED strips are rated at 12 Watt per metre and are 5 metres in length.
4800 K in temperature.

Great work, love the backdrops!
Oddly,  was a professional artist for several years, but I've never had any interest to paint backdrops.
I used profiles of hills covered in ground foam,
as I didn't want to use a 2D representation of anything that didn't actually exist in 3D form of some kind.

Thanks, I kind of like to paint backdrops... :)


Installed the second LED strip today.

The light level will probably be okay when I can install the outer LED strips as well.

I have to build the valance first, so it'll be in the right places.

My plan is to have the valance about 2-3" outside of the layouts edge.

The LED strips has a 40° light angle and will be mounted 20° inward so it will light straight down at the front, and towards the backdrop.
