Backdrop Walls


Here's a great example on my home layout where an unrealistic corner was transformed into something much more visually appealing.

I've been staring at this corner of my layout for years, and finally had the time, focus and product solution to put in place.

After a little measurement and sketching, I used our ITLA Reinforced Concrete Industrial Wall Modules to create some backdrop wall sections that dropped in place and covered the blank wall.

I built all of this "flat" on my workbench, super-detailed the building face with our ITLA wall details, added lighting and put it in place.  I love the visual transition this provided ... that industrial, "concrete canyon" effect that I was looking for.

    This corner turned out very beautiful. Especially I like this backdrop behind the overpass, which lends a great depth to the scene.
    How did you close the gap at the right end of the scene? Would you like to supply an image with the same perspective as the first one. I would gratly appreciate that! Thanks for shareing, BR Robert

    Great job hiding the corner and very nice buildings . Thank You for making O scale walls available . Like the building on the right with the big multy pane windows and blank wall sections . Wondering if the is on the horison in O scale .
