In episode nine of building a modular model railway, I’ll be attempting to make a tunnel!
Hi everyone, I’m back again with another layout update from my portable model railway and it’s another long episode! After all the excitement last time of finishing off the two final corner modules, today I’ll be adding some scenery to one of those as I attempt to make a tunnel to hide the entrance to the fiddle yard.
I didn’t really have a plan for this, more like a rough idea so you’ll have to see how it all turned out but there’s certainly a lot to pack into this episode. Alongside painting the Peco Modelscene tunnel portal there’s also bit of ballasting, making the tunnel itself along with an interior and I even had a go at making a removable access panel too. All in all it’s one of the most varied videos I’ve ever made for the channel so there should be something for everyone… enjoy!
