Building The Ultimate Model - Realistic Scenery Vol.6


(Comments posted here are more likely to get a response 😉)


After watching this tutorial YOU will be able to make amazing and very realistic scenery starting from scratch. It can seem daunting at first but if you just take it one step at a time you’ll have your first master piece before you know it.

The techniques used in this video are easily applied to a whole range of scales and can be used whether you build model railways, war game terrain, doll houses, model architecture and just about any other type of model making you can think of!

I spend a lot of time making these videos and having the ads on YouTube help support the creation of these tutorials, but if you’d like to make a more direct impact with supporting these videos you can check out my ‘Patreon’ page.

Extra Files:

Additional content that will help you recreate and follow along with the build, some of the 3D printer files are still experimental and may require some tinkering in order to get them to print successfully. Also, nearly all of the 3D printer files are designed for resin 3D printers, trying to print them using a filament 3D printer may not be possible!

But in any case, I hope you enjoy the extra content.
