I had a road run into the backdrop. With a very small space I curved it up .. but needed a view-block to hide that ..

I had previously built the Clever Models O Scale Maintenance Shed. I layered boards and used Tichy windows

I re-worked/bashed the Maintenance Shed by removing any windows on the sides and sticking a window and door on the back where I made it a two story(ish). This hides the end of the wall. I haven't built the ground up to it yet in this pic. The walls are just printed .. no layering as this will be mostly hid behind the brick barbershop ..

With the brick building in place you can barely see the wooden building behind it from this view. Even if you step to the left it will work fine.

This is just about as far to the right as I can get my camera as the tripod is hitting the layout. The edge of the road behind the wooden building can bee seen in this pic - but that will be filled in by something .. a pole with a sign? Donno .. figure that out later (the tower building is just sitting in place for the pic)

Pic from save angle with the brick building in place

Finally the camera moved back so it is centered between the two other views. The left side of the road .. hmmm. May move the building back and up a bit .. a walk/stairs could blend in that area

.. with the brick building in place though .. it acts as a view block. Cool beans.

Ed, nicely done. Modeled to rear life, not every building can be a focal point. Having said that, everything I've seen you build should be. Beautifully modeled.

Cheers, Heath.
