Default New back scene

Just fitted a new back scene at the gasworks end of layout. These photographic scenes are so much better than the Peco artist created ones Ive used in the past (IMHO).

Superb job. When compared to your last pictures of the gasworks without the backscene it takes it to a completely new level. I completely agree that photographic backscenes look so much better than the Peco type of painted ones, which is why I took my own pictures and had them made into one!

Beautiful job.

Thank you for your kind comments guys. It's from id Backscenes and stuck to 5mm ply with 2 strips of double sided carpet tape.

Look really good. I used gaugemaster photo backscenes on my OO section, but if doing it again I'd certainly look at the ID range.

How did you do the backboards without creating air bubbles ? Also how did you weather the rails ? I tried my track with a grout pen put caused problems with the head of the track being live and bad contact ?

Like I said above just two strips of double sided tape. I deliberately avoided glueing/pasting them as I wanted to avoid air bubbles. Each back scene comes in two lengths in a cardboard tube with instructions on fitting them. One of the options was to use DS tape and it worked fine for me.

The inside and outside of rails is just a rust coloured Humbro enamel applied with a brush.
