Tips For Constructing LOW RELIEF Buildings
Low relief buildings are simply buildings that have only 1, 2 , or 3 sides. When placed directly in front of a background they give the impression of being complete 3D structures. This can save a lot of space and give the impression the model railroad stretches much further into the distant landscape than is the case. Construction low relief buildings is surprisingly easy when you know how. These short videos will show you the simple step by step process.
Constructing Low Relief Model Railroad Buildings – Part 1
Having low relief buildings positioned against a wall or backdrop can really give a model railroad a sense of perspective and trick the mind into believing the model railroad scene is bigger than it actually is.
You can download the PDF plans for this model railroad street scene at http://www.modelbuildings.org/low-relief-buildings.html They can easily be scaled to the size you want, but remember you might want to make them a bit smaller than the scale you are operating as the buildings will probably be in the distance.
