    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.

    Hello from Moscow

    Hi Dmitry A few years ago I built a Russian winter scene exhibition HO layout which still tours the U.K. model rail circuit.
  24. cteno4


    Few options https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326599 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10511927 More here https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/list/1904/0/1 both can also be drawn up in a simple drawing program and just print your roads and sidewalks! You cna mock things up quickly and cut them out to try ideas, then mount them to thin styrene or your baseboard. cheers jeff

    See lots of Outland building pictures with sidewalk/ pavements. Any idea where I can buy such sidewalk kits
  26. Yesterday
  27. Actually these are pretty hard to break and why Im not really concerned. I’d probably have to frisbee it into a wall and even then I think it would just break the box, not the toys, they are pretty robust, I’ve never broken one and I’ve dropped them onto the floor. Not like our n gauge trains, those of course I use foam. I’ve cut foam inserts for a really wild variety of equipment in the past so no stranger to this. im more inclined to spend my time cutting nice foam inserts for the clear vhs cases I have for my Tomytec trains as those cheap box and plastic inserts are pretty poor even on a small drop... jeff
