take your modeling to a whole new level

Welcome to our Next-Level Realism special issue! Inside you’ll find detailed how-to articles on everything from making birch trees to extending scenery into the aisle. In selecting these projects we looked for variety, ease of construction, and impact. None of them require special skills beyond a willingness to try something new and the patience to carry it through to completion. These projects are sure to make a difference on your layout – to take it to the next level of realism. The quest for realism also includes operation. In his “Trains of Thought” column on page 82, contributing editor Tony Koester discusses breaking the realism barrier. “The basic idea is that the front edge of the layout,” Tony writes, “usually where a fascia is attached, is where our full-size world ends and the miniaturized world…

I also have a resin kit of “The Birthplace of Model Railroader” sitting on the shelf. Not that the combination would be prototypical in any way, but I’m considering using the two together on a T-Trak module. The prototype information in the kit is a bit sparse. Are there any pictures of the building in a back issue? Can you supply me with any information about the structure and trim colors? Vincent Sanders, Chicago A There aren’t many photos of the prototype building that the “Birthplace of Model Railroader” kit was based upon. I’ve only ever seen two; both are black and white, and neither shows a lot of detail. Above is one…
