As well as the hall that's jammed to the rafters with diecast releases, which you've hopefully seen plenty of in our previous videos, the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg also includes a huge hall with numerous model railway layouts. One of the railway manufacturers at the show was Bachmann, which had some sneak peeks of upcoming releases.

Thankfully, Bachmann's European sales and marketing manager David Haarhaus was on-hand to take us through a few upcoming models and a new product that we're sure will become popular for those who get a thrill out of making model railway layouts. Called 'Shaper Sheet', the product allows users to sculpt scenery using special paper and then cover it with plaster cloth to create hills, mountains or whatever you want.

However, perhaps the biggest benefit is that the product is extremely lightweight, so when you're forced to move your layout from the spare bedroom and into the loft, you won't break your back while doing it. Perfect! Anyway, take a look at the video below to see an example of a piece of scenery made using Shaper Sheet.
