KIRTLEY MODEL BUILDINGS

Welcome to the Kirtley Model Buildings website. I specialise in handbuilt model buildings in all scales and model railway scenery and dioramas in all scales from 4mm scale to Gauge 3. 

BACKSCENE PACKS

THE PACKS ARE FOR USE ON 0 GAUGE LAYOUTS.

These packs are not complete backscenes but are designed to be used in conjunction with a landscape backscene to build up an urban or village scene in the foreground. For the sky and landscape I use and recommend ID Backscenes. 

My packs comprise A4 sheets on which are printed buildings which are cut out and arranged to create a street, townscape or village scene before being glued in place on the exisiting backscene. They can be arranged in any way you want, although the terraces are designed to be joined together to create a long image.

The images are printed using spirit based ink on top quality paper and they will not fade in normal conditions.

USING THE BACKSCENE PICTURES. 

I cut the pictures out of the sheet using a scalpel on a cutting mat, although scissors can be used. 

To stick the pictures to the backscene use a tube glue such as Evostick, UHU or Bostick; don't use Copydex or PVA, they will crinkle the paper. 

You can use spray adhesive, but it doesn't give any time for adjustment. Using tube glue you can put the image in place, move it a little if necessary and then smooth it using a dry cloth once it is in exactly the right place. 

​​

INDUSTRY PACK.

Nine pictures showing industrial scenes taken at Beamish, Ironbridge and Amberley. The pictures that include the background are designed to be used to fill a gap bewteen two 3D buildings, in which position they look very effective.
