Have you ever wondered how to make hill & embankments for your model railway? Well then this tutorial is for you!
Hi everyone, I’m back again with another episode of Model Railway Basics, the tutorial series where I walk you through all the basic skills you’ll need to build your own model railway. In this episode we finally get to do some modelling as we set work on the landscaping. Adding hills and embankments to your model railway can really transform your layout as it makes the landscape so much more interesting to look at.
In this video I’ll show you how I do it on my layout using recycled polystyrene, mod roc (or plaster bandage) and modelling compound/sculptamould. As always there are lots of different techniques out there and the way I demonstrate here is just one of many so feel free to make it your own and adapt it for your own uses.
In the meantime don’t forget to check out the other episodes of Model Railway Basics:
