For master modeler and kit builder George Sellios, there’s no big secret or unorthodox technique necessary for creating a realistic scene, it’s all about keeping things simple while adding as much detail as possible.

In this segment, host Allen Keller sits down with George Sellios to find out what model railroad scenery techniques he uses to make wood look old and rotten. George goes through each step of his unique method for creating rotted ties as well as presents a list of materials you will need to represent rotted ties. You’ll learn how this technique can also be used to represent rotted wood on any old building or bridge. We’re excited to see the rest of George’s layout, and we were glad to have a chance to learn how one of the greats goes about his work!
