Video: The City Edge day and night in 4k

Check out scenes on this HO scale layout
The City Edge is an HO scale model railroad created and built by Vic Smith. The city section of the layout is 25' (length) by 3' (depth). The city is made up of multiple model kits, including kitbashed, custom and scratchbuilt structures that have all been recreated and casted in very durable black urethane. The strength of the urethane provided the durability needed to withstand the multiple hand and spray paint applications, along with several sessions of saturating alcohol staining procedures to achieve the gritty weathered brick and mortar appearance. The streets are made from Woodland Scenic "Smooth-it" paving plaster poured at 1/4" on top of 1/2" homosote insulation board.
