Adding realistic paved roads to your model railroad is much easier than it looks! In this simple tutorial I step you through all the techniques and methods for adding a great looking country road to your scenery.
These roads look fantastic and it doesn’t take much to add some great looking details like cracks, road repairs and realistic looking road shoulders. This technique applies to any scale whether it’s HO, N, 1/35th scale wargaming or even architectural modeling, the techniques are the same.

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.
