Mike Dannemann has done a great job of showing us modelers how to give the background a realistic touch. His sharing his talent at creating the sky and clouds and working your way down to the far off hills and valleys puts the finishing touch on your train layout. Painting in many close details that you might have concidered building models of saves time and money, while developing a additional talent. G.W.Z.
