The really time consuming part of building a layout is preparing all the bits and pieces that make a layout believeable.
These signposts and road name boards I picked up some time ago.
Made by Dart Castings, these are to 'N' Gauge. They do look about right for 3mm though.
Computer skills are not my forte however and the names for these took me some time.
For the technically minded the names are printed in Arial and printed at 4 point (think thats right anyway).
To give you some idea of size, the squares on my
cutting mat are 10mm square.
Painted with Valejo Acrylic White paint and the names stuck on with canopy Glue, the printing probably took the longest to do.
So, it just needs a spot of superglue to complete the 4 poster and they are ready to be located.
The road names are from the same source and made in the same way.
So now we know at least where we are going.
