We are pleased to announce our new photographic backscene range, the first one being that of this beautiful river valley scene. Supplied in a square-section tube, the three separate sheets will match perfectly together to form a continuous run of 2400mm (95in), and reaching to a height of 333mm (13in). Future backscenes will match at either end allowing longer runs of scenery throughout the full length of a layout.
Our long-standing painted backscenes have been a modellers' favourite for years, and they will continue to be available for as long as the demand is there, but we have been listening to feedback from modellers and recognise that there is a need for photographic backscenes. Finding the exact locations to suit these is actually quite challenging! We are lucky enough to be located in a very beautiful part of the country so it was only natural that we would look close to home for our first subject, these images being based on the nearby River Axe.More information on scenic detailing is available in the Peco Catalogue, Peco Guide to Railway Modelling (Ref PM-200), Peco Guide to 00 Gauge Modelling (Ref PM-206), Peco Guide to N Gauge Modelling (Ref PM-204), and our popular series of Shows You How booklets - Modelling the Landscape (No 13), Detailing the Landscape (No 14), Adding the Background (No 15) and Creating the Backscene (No 16).
