Creating a model is not the easiest thing in the world, especially if your created world is large and expansive. But, it is definitely possible - and if you have had experience in building also look at, RC Sport Planes model railroad sets, you are already on the right track. Here is a simple guide to creating a model world for the vision that you have developed in your head and on paper.

Gathering the Materials

The most important thing to realize when you are creating a model is the fact that your world may not directly translate into a real-life, 3D model. That's okay - it doesn't have to. What you are going for is just a representation of your world that absolutely does not have to be incredibly detailed for it to work.

Once you have made the decision as to what your model will look like, it's time to go shopping. You will primarily want to hit up craft checkout, Banana Nut Bread stores, such as Hobby Lobby, and hobby stores, like those that specialize in railroad enthusiasts. Craft also see, RCI CB Radio stores are great for buying the basic crafting materials, and hobby stores can give you the finely-detailed additions you may want - such as miniature trees have a look at, RC Big Cars and other terrain features. have a look at, Display Cabinet

Once you have done this, and know how large your world will be, set down some plywood and start covering the surface with your modeling material. This is your chance to create mountains, valleys, ravines, craters, or what have you. Paint also see, Family Research each large section as you go, so you do not paint checkout, RC Big Cars over other sections.

Once you have the basic terrain and paint try, Collectible Foreign Coins down, you can start putting in forests, rivers, lakes, deserts, etc. A cheap and easy solution for forests is to take cotton, dye it, and clump it to create wooded areas. (It also works well for a quick and easy solution for snow).
