About this blog

This blog is about my current model railroad layout project; The N scale "Summit" layout, which is a freelanced interpretation of the Southern Pacific Tehachapi tunnels and their surroundings. Or at least, that is what it is meant to be. What it will turn out to be is another matter. The banner photo above shows what I want to recreate in N scale.

Blue sky

Benchwork and backdropPosted by lennart Sun, January 31, 2010 18:43:35

Earlier today I painted the backdrop. First two coates of white latex paint and then a coat of very light blue.

I have no intention of varying the shades of blue or painting clouds or anything. I want it to show as little as possible.

Turning to the window I caught the view below. A very pale winter sun above my neighbour's roof. Outside it is -8 degrees Celsius (17.6 Fahrenheit, if I have done my calculations correctly).

Tonight I also cut som MDF board for the staging yard. It is not properly installed yet (on risers). It just lies there for a test fit.
