    • At what stage in building a layout are Tunnel Portals installed?

      Tunnel Portals can be installed at various times throughout the layout modeling process. We recommend installing them after Plaster Cloth or Shaper Sheet Shaper Sheet Plaster has been applied. 

      Tunnel Portals can also be installed throughout the landscaping process, making it easy to add them to an existing layout. Cut into the terrrain (if additonal room is needed for the portal) and install per package instructions. 

    • I have your Timber Single Portal HO Scale. How do you paint it to make it look like wood?

      For a realistic timber appearance, we recommend using Earth Colors Liquid Pigment - Burnt Umber and Black. Dilute 1-part Burnt Umber with 8-parts water and brush over the entire Portal as a base color. Over the Burnt Umber, apply a black color-wash. Dilute 1-part Black with a approximately 32-parts water. Brush and dab on the black wash, letting it seep into all the crevices. Adjust amount of water for desired look.
       
      For the box photo, we brushed on a less diluted black wash above the tunnel opening to model the build-up of train smoke.

    • What color pigments do you suggest I use on Tunnel Portals and Walls to make them look realistic?

      The photo of the Single Track Timber Portal, shown on the website is a good example of a realistic Tunnel Portal. We used Burnt Umber for the main color and then applied a wash using a thin solution of Black. You could also use Stone Gray  as an accent.
