So Sorry for letting the room get so tidy ..... I promise it will get back to its normal level of chaos as soon as possible  :thumbsup:

I've been doing some stuff in there this morning, as I think we have got your rain today Dave, and it feels really strange being so uncluttered  :worried:

Thanks again Alexander, and also Chris ..... I have been called many things, but cute and interesting never ...... Ooops ...... you mean the layout, not me  :D  :-[  :D

Back to creating Clutter

All best wishes,
Kevin

Hi All,

This morning I took advantage of a clear floor space to make a new backscene.

I had a duplicate of the one on the layout, and I tore the sky off (to give a softer edge) then cut along the bottom so it would fit against the rocks and bushes on the layout.

Then I glued it to a 15" ID Backscenes sky .....



Then I trimmed the bottom of the sky sheet to the same profile as the scenery



Then after careful measuring and checking positions I glued some wooden clothes pegs to the back of the scene.



This meant I could clip the new backscene onto the existing backboard on the layout



And Yay  :claphappy: look what I got ......



As long as I am careful with creases, and shadows, this gives me an easily fixed temporary backscene for photographs so I can take wider views without worrying about backscene edges being seen.  :D  :D



Yes, Job well done  :thumbsup:  :D  :thumbsup:

Now to spend a relaxing afternoon making sea-foam trees  :)

Hope you all have a great Bank Holiday

All kind regards

Kevin
