Scratch build viaduct

Modellbahn Rosenbahn Viaduct Scratch Building in H0

Home English language

At the left opening in the wall of the Module 1 a viaduct is been build. The goal for that viaduct is to create a pass trough to the next module that looks better than only a square hole in the wall. This viaduct is completely constructed by using cardboard. All parts are first measured and a drawing in the right scale 1:87 is made on the cardboard sheet and cut out. The different parts are glued together using wood glue (diluted with some water 1:1). When finished the first layer of paint is applied. This is normal acrylic paint in the color concrete grey which can be found a small samples at every hardware store. This paint is normal wall paint. When dry several accents are made with Vallejo Model Color Paint and Vallejo Wash. With this different colors the outcome is be as realistic as possible. Further weathering takes place by using Vallejo Pigment Weathering Powders.

During the building process a quick look how it will be at the module.

Fencing wall will be made over the complete length.

The base color concrete grey is applied.

It is clear that even on cardboard Vallejo Model Washes  perform perfect. Used is Vallejo 76.515 Light Grey Wash.

Some light weathering with Vallejo Pigments. Used are 73.122 Faded Olive Green, 73.119 European Earth and 73.113 Light Slade Grey. (Already 23 colors are available 31-12-2018)

How it looks at the module.

And with the painted backdrop.
