This tutorial will walk you through some of the tips and tricks for building an ultra-high quality model that could be a feature in a museum! It’s really not as difficult as you might think.
This model is in HO scale however like with nearly all of my previous videos the techniques I use can be applied to just about any other scale, from Z scale right through to G scale!
I use a lot of techniques that you will have seen in previous videos plus a whole lot of new never before shown techniques for creating unique effects, below you’ll also find a list of companion videos for things like the chain-link fence, various trees on the model as well as some tools I use.
