Backdrop at "Dire Straights" Raceway

Postby btaylor » Sat Sep 16, 2017 7:03 am

Found a free download of a fence line at a racetrack. Printed it out on multiple sheets, and added it to the back stretch. Painted in some skyline to blend the wall board to the new backdrop. Not TO shabby for my tastes.

Not bad...everything is a little blurry at speed. It's a huge improvement over my plain wall. And faster to put up than hundreds of painted figures.

How much did you have to enlarge the regular photo? Looks GREAT!! Sure is easier than doing lots of figures!!

Thanks Guy's! I should have included the link. there are several of them, and I didn't have to resize anything. just "print to full page" here it is.
