Scotty Mason/Bob van Gelder Scenery (Craftsman Kits vol 3) video - 4*

(out of 5)



This is a good presentation of techniques focusing on dioramas (but

of course those techniques work on larger layouts, too.) Production

is up to Scotty's standards. It was interesting watching how Bob

works the scenery up to the building. (www.scottymason.com)



Paul Scholes Advanced Scenery video - 5* (out of 5)



Paul shows moving from rough scenery to finished hillside.

Production is very good (with a few moments that are out of focus.)

The sections on various kinds of tree making are alone worth the cost

of the video, as is the video walk-through the layout, showing how

Paul moves from the dry eastern part of California to the coastline,

varying vegetation and rock coloring. As a 2 hour video, this one is

a real bargain at its price. (www.paulscholes.com)
