    Ooh, an outstanding ferry and layout! [edit: wait, I'm sure there was a ferry layout here when I typed this reply; must have sailed away in the fog...] I just ordered your [first?] set of Japanese signs, looking forward to them. Yesterday was a UK shopping day for me. Also put in an order with Rails of Sheffield for a handful of Peco 15ft wagon chasses. They will provide the foundation for some extra short flat wagons to go with our B-Train Shorties. Since we'll be using them to transport our Girls und Panzer tanks, it will work just fine that the frames are from a much earlier time period and different country! Each 15 footer will be able to carry one tank. A Shorty Koki would be too long for just one tank, and too short for two. A 50' Warflat from the N Gauge Society could carry two, but is too long to look at home in a Shorty world.
  4. Wow, this is exactly what I was looking for - I'll be ordering some tonight !!!

    4ft x 2ft exhibition layout 4 weeks in

    We don't have a Go Go Bar on our layout. (Haven't spotted one anywhere in our chosen cities, at least with flashy advertising like that.) We do have a seedy old-timey cinema on the wrong side of the tracks in Mito that we'll be kitbashing from the lovely Tomytec kit. It's the only old-fashioned style movie house we could find anywhere in Ibaraki. The reason why it has survived is because they long ago changed to showing adult movies and became a gay men's meet-up place!

    Tomix - New Releases

    Need to work out if the 185-200 series is one which could have operated Hama-Kaiji services...
  10. Here is one of my N gauge exhibition layouts which has been doing the rounds of SE England shows. It is called Dover Night Ferry 1966 and includes the boat train SS Hampton. The Dover White Cliffs with the A20 road and the iconic hotel.

    KATO inquiry

    Kato seems to use the starter set codes for more than one version of starter sets; at least that‘s how I feel.

    KATO inquiry

    Speaking of which, I think I'll take the opportunity here. A friend of mine got an old KATO Nozomi starter set. What confused me is the code, it's the code shared with the Hayabusa Starter set (One I know all too well) 10-001. According to Hobby 1999. This model was from 2005 and had been recalled or cancelled. So anyone can tell whether something is horribly wrong with it or am I missing something here?

    Hello from London

    Added the decals from the city scene pack that arrived last week to the same style Outland building they have on their website. Pleased with results. Added a door frame to the shop front by cutting part of the shop name. Here are my before and after shots. Anyone know where I can buy the pavements and actual tarmac roads seen in many of the photos featuring Outland models

    4ft x 2ft exhibition layout 4 weeks in

    Before and after shots of one of my Outland building with its new decals on. I tried to create the same as in the publicity shot on the website. Very pleased with shop front as added a door frame by cutting ends of the shop sign to create the same zig zag line. Anyone know where I can get the pavements and tarmac city roads which are often featured in Outland building photos.

    4ft x 2ft exhibition layout 4 weeks in

    This arrived today, bought second hand for £40 as seller states does not reverse. Put it on test track and runs great in one direction but as my layout is going to be a loop, who cares if it doesn’t go backwards its the E217 Yokosuka subu line

    Sankei Paper Kits

    Looks very convincing ! Plenty of this kind of house much closer in. Check out the fire hazard map and pick any of the orange, red or dark red locations and you'll be sure to find densely-packed clusters of similar ;). Also unless you like kerosene heaters and kotatsus, probably not so much fun in winter.

    I would suggest Sankei as well. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10159675 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10159678 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10159676

    Sankei Paper Kits

    I finished another Sankei kit. This is MP03-107, Good Old Diorama Series : House E. I think I could live in this place, somewhere out in the distant Tokyo suburbs. This is a nice little kit that goes together without much drama - typical for Sankei. I wanted to light one room and leave the interior visible, so I added a little interior detail during construction. Some added details to the outside courtesy of Kabuto Models, Kobaru, Nanyo Busan (tile roof), Tomytec (car), some of my own 3D prints, and some scratch building... Night time photo. Two small LEDs light the interior and a little front door light that that is a 3D print.

    I ordered these on the 3rd of March, to be shipped via surface mail, and they arrived on Tuesday. Not bad, all things considered. Now I'm waiting for EMS to Australia to restart so I can get my loco and carriage order delivered. Cheers, Mark.
