Charlie Comstock, contributing editor at Model Railroad Hobbyist magazine, demonstrates how he paints backdrops on his Bear Creek & South Jackson HO scale model railroad. Charlie likes his clouds amorphous so he creates them using an airbrush. He keeps the hills simple – an outline of a distant ridge topped with trees mixed with clear cuts using latex house paint.
When Pilentum visited an exhibition for model railways, he saw this fine model railroad with German model trains in HO scale. The model railway layout was constructed as a modular model railroad layout with typical features of a landscape in Southern Germany. Therefore, a lot of German diesel trains and railcars are presented on this layout. The model railway was built by a German model train club. Construction began in 2015 and each year, new segments and new modules were added. The model railroad has an area of approximately 9.5 meters x 3.0 meters and it is operated with the digital control from Roco and Uhlenbrock.

In This video, I show using some hobby time silicon rubber and molding compound to make small parts for my railroad. Its a pretty short video but goes through the full scope to painting the formed parts.
I wanted to elaborate on something that many have posted their thoughts on. It has to do with duplicating purchased products as seen in this video. I am making copies of some things I have purchased for my own use, not for resale, this is perfectly legal. As long as these items are not being sold to anyone else, there is not any laws on copyrights or other wise “stealing”. It is my thought that once I have purchased something, I can duplicate it for my own personal use. Furthermore, the simple truth is, many of these small parts are so entirely over priced in my opinion that it is in my own best interest to duplicate things that I feel I may use.
I hope you find this video and its contents useful, If indeed you are indifferent on my opinion on duplicating parts, I would gladly accept your purchased products.
Colin has made this video and it the first one he has ever produced on model railroading. He has around 32 years of experience in the hobby so there is no doubting he knows his stuff.
If you think Colin has done a great job on his first video, then I’m sure he’d be happy if you shared it with friends. I have uploaded it to youtube for him as he doesn’t pretend to be an expert with computers. I hope you enjoy it. The download book he mentioned is (or was) available online at
