x mass pizza layout

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

x mass pizza layout

Postby franckcombe » Sat Jan 23, 2010 8:26 pm

hi,

I'm doing a x mass pizza layout. The size is 20 by 30 cm. The radius is 6cm and the 040 gas mechanical runs perfectly.

I have to install tree.

Hi Franck,

That is a very small size!

What did you use for snow on the tree?

I put cheap air spray for women (extra strong) that I left falling like snow bicarbonate of sodium. Then I reapet the operation 2/3 times if necessary.

Don't hesitate to spray were near of the tree, it must be weet, even socking.

After you have to put a coat of vanish or clear to have the shinning effect.

Great pizza. Never any reason for anything when it comes to these. That's the beauty of this concept 8)
Little old lines to somewhere.

I have a snow shovel that is wide enough to be a plow on that loco!

As it's February now, perhaps this thread should be renamed "Winter Pizza"! :lol:

Very nice Franck - and it features my favourite critter (have I said that before?)

I guess Jon is one of those hardy Canucks who don't need a coat in the snow :roll:

Whats a coat?
I like that little critter as well, lots of character, now just a shovel thrown in the skip and your off to the inevitable drifts always near a tree line. Perhaps some snow fence rolled up in the skip as well.
