New detailing projects from Jeff Wilson, plus favorites from the pages of Model Railroader, help modelers add the finishing touches to their layouts and create a higher level of interest and realism. Projects range from adding weeds to creating signs and billboards, and all can be completed easily in an evening or weekend. Key areas covered include structures, scenery, vehicles, locomotives and rolling stock, and more.
