Along the prototype, billboards are everywhere, but are not nearly as common on our layouts. This clinic will teach you how to make your own. You will learn how to find billboard art on the internet, and how to capture the images to your Windows-based Personal Computer. You will learn how to size the images for use as billboards or posters, and then print them on decal paper. Using styrene, you will learn how to construct billboard support structures for use along roadways. Information on creating fixtures to make construction easier will be shared. This is an excellent tutorial for the first-time scratch builder as well as anyone interested as providing roadside advertising for their layout’s industries and products.
