I was adding wire mesh to start some landscaping the other day. I did the rear elevated section and thought that as it was all the same height it wasn't going to look too good done as a grassy bank.


So I took the mesh off.


And came up with the idea of building a via duct (Like railway arches).


I found a plan on the Net from someone that had made a railway bridge. Added some inside bits and some extra brick for the top.


I figured that a 16cm brick is going to be 5mm long in 1:32. So I re-scaled the arch accordingly in PhotoShop.


Printed it out 8 times (normal paper), cut it out and stuck it to cardboard with stick glue.


I cut a backing and glued it together, with a top section with white wood glue.


I've just pinned it in place and it'll dry for a few houres.


Then I'll paint the back black, finish the gluing and insert the roof under the arch and add brickwork to the top wall.

I'll add some more photos when I finish it off.

Excellent


You see that adding depth and volume to the layout adds quit a bit to the overall effect.
