Recommended Posts

Building a three tier Japan city layout with subway under baseboard  now finished subway section, with drawer openings for easy access to track.  Still to start at baseboard level which will be tomytec moving bus and tram and upper level JP line. Full city planned with Godzilla attack in one corner.  Using some scratch built items including a Japanese city public garden made out of a tomix package box which came with the track, 80% finished just need lower cardboard to have pavement added. Loads of skyscrapers to built and  back scene at printers and finally found a website that sells all the authentic building billboard adverts for buildings.  Having fun looking at sat dish options for buildings and scratch built two options but need improvements. Piccy of finished subway section and city garden enclosed. More piccys as I progress.

Today started the baseboard level plans and upper level plan, the rail track will be raised 12 cm and the station raised same amount. Just checking all fits on baseboard and awaiting extra bus system track and one extra viaduct, using standard kato track in its place until it arrives.  The only base level track will be bus and tram.  Most curved track will not be seen.  Opening under for subway system which just slides in on a drawer

There is more than a hint of the Barbican centre in that city garden structure. Will be interesting to see how this layout develops.

massive box arrived from Japan for Outland city buildings,  including the ruined buildings caused by Godzilla, who hasn’t arrive yet by post.  Having fun painting them and got a little tank for him to hold and crush.... is Godzilla a boy or a girl?  Spent weeks on web looking for city hoarding billboards and tried lots of Japanese sites and behold found a U.K. supplier other side of London so hopefully decals will arrive in post tomorrow.  They have custom fit bill boards and adverts for Outland and kato buildings.

Good question! Well goji had its son in the original series but no real explanation of where the egg came from! American godzilla series has goji being female hemaphrodite. So I guess you could consider the original as female as well, but like ships being called she goji seems to be always called he! Perhaps modern culture and non binary would be better for goji...

 

which goji model did you get?
