Standing in the shadows. (5p)
Probably the most difficult part of any layout to portray with realism are the figures, animal and human, which our layouts need to finish them off. In this second Paintshop Special, author Brian Fayle suggests a novel approach to solve these problems.
1997 Dec/1998 Jan

Bridging the gap. (1p)
Someone once defined an engineer as someone who could do for a nickel what any fool could do for a dollar. Perhaps the purpose of the epithet was to point out that effective solutions aren't necessarily expensive solutions, as Brian Fayle demonstrates in constructing an essential bridge.
1999 November

Out of the shadows or how to paint a perfect population in any scale. (5p)
Even on the most superbly detailed layouts where the viewer is almost convinced he's looking at the real scene, the one feature which often gives the game away is unrealistic figures. On a visit from Canada, Brian Fayle demonstrated his figure-painting technique at Gauge 'O' Guild's Telford show before stopping off at our photographic studios to give Model Rail readers a personal demonstration.
