Picture It

I'm not sure if yesterday's title is more appropriate for today's post.

Today I added the back scene. It is a panorama photo which I had resized to be 145 cm (5 cm too long which I found out today - I thought that I had made it shorter). I chunked it into four images which were 40 cm long and 23 cm tall. This will fit onto an A3 sheet. I printed them off on a photocopier, trimmed and glued using a UHU glue stick.

The image is a bit pixelated and I think that the background is a bit closer than may be it should be. However, if you've ever stood on Henry Parry Drive at Gosford, you know how close Rumbalara Reserve is to the town there. I reckon that it passes the one metre rule as well.

Here are the pictures.

Job one for the week done.

Until next time.


  1. Vast improvement over the blue wall. Looks good. Anyone modelling the "Sapphire Coast" is doing it right!

    1. Thanks Bob. I'm sure that I'll find the back scenes for the main layout a bit more challenging as there is a lot more wall.

      I've enjoyed reading about your foray into narrow gauge. Keep up the good work.
