Bruce De Young, VP and AP Chair for the GSD will present a clinic “Modeling Tips & Tricks.”
Whether your interests are in scenery, construction or model building, this clinic will show you some neat “tips and tricks” to make your work easier and more pleasing to the eye. No matter your level of experience, this clinic will send you home with new ideas you want to try on your own.
3D building from Photos given by Jimmy Judge
Jimmy’s description of the clinic:
“Have you ever wanted to make a model of a building for your layout, but you don't feel you have enough skills to create something out of wood or styrene? Why not take some digital photos of the building, print them out and create a 3D version of it for your layout? I'll show you how with a little work on your computer to bring the building from the digital world into the real world. I'll even let you in on a little secret to get the photo editing software for free. Model railroaders like free don't they?”
Then two short clinics

“ Have you ever wondered what it takes to get a model live steam engine running on your garden layout?
