Default "Wykeham" an ongoing project!

A very long way to go - but I am getting there!

Sorry - but I don't seem to be able to do small pictures.

Thanks Brian - I'm not convinced now I have them, that the backscenes are right - I'm beginning to thinks that "distant hills" might have been a better choice - they do peel of fairly easily! They are a continuous run, but the section by the control panel, looks wrong - the sheds look to big. I'll leave them as they are at the moment - my problem is that I have very little space between track and backscene.

What a difference a year makes BB.

Sometimes I'm afraid you can't help having little space between the track and the back scene. All part of the compromise of railway modelling in a restricted space. It looks OK to me.

Hi BB

Very nice set-up in such a short time. It's good to see that the rest of the room is 'clean and tidy!!!! SWMBO rules - Ok???
The backscenes look perfectly fine to me!

The problem is to do with vanishing points. For the back scene perspective to look correct there can only be one vanishing point which is impossible because the layout is in 3 dimensions. Some clever artists like Vermeer paint pictures with 2 or 3 vanishing points. To make this work, they place an object in the foreground to conceal the forced perspective. You can do this on your layout. Make a cardboard cutout of, say, a tree and place it in front of the back scene. The easiest way to do this is to take a photo of a tree or a building and cut it out.

Nice layout and goint point, Cudworth: a foreground object can distract a viewer's attention from perspective anomalies.
