I see that you have purchased the "N Gauge Layout Plan Collection 50" book. I have it too! It's really inspirational. Layouts #39 and 40 are particularly interesting!

 

I am wondering if anyone can recommend any similar books.  I purchased this and would like to find more layout books but I am finding the search process tedious - trying to check out the various publications available but sometimes the translation software leaves something to be desired.  And it is hard to judge content.  I bought the plan book based on a recommendation and would certainly appreciate any additional suggestions.

Ciao,

Tomytec's Nostalgic Collection 2 arrived today. Slowly I get an idea for a small layout for these models 😮 I already have too many projects 😕

Today I cycled approximately 11.63km to Hobbycentre Kato:

and made a couple of acquisitions:

the most important one being a reservation for the 28-223 E351 upgrade set, which I missed out on last time round, much to my lasting annoyance.

 

And today Kato informed me I can go along and pick it up 😄

I wanted to collect Tokyo trains, but this is my favorite Shinkansen.

Finally I can no longer be annoyed with myself for missing it the first time around.

Thanks for the information on Kunihiko Ikeda. I’m kind of interested in his comic, Karechi, about a train conductor. Looks like some nice illustrations of JNR in the 1960s.

Received a few items from a new-to-me company, Artitec. They are in the Netherlands. They seem to make a wide variety of stuff in many scales, finished models and kits.

 

https://artitec.nl/

 

I found them on the web-site of a German model train shop that I have bought from before. https://www.modellbahn-kramm.com/ 

 

I bought three items in 1:160 scale.

A couple of cargo bikes. Not specifically Japanese, but maybe a unique detail for a Japanese scene. They are really well done - a combination of photo-etched and formed metal, and I think 3D printed plastic.

Then, there are these extremely well done semi-industrial storage cabinets - most of them open with detailed interiors and amazingly thin and detailed doors.

Thanks for sharing! Browsed their range and as scenic assecories I would already get ideas (civil old US Motorcycle in front of some Bike workshop or bar anyone?)

 

They seem to be focused a lot onWW1 and WW2 scenics it seems.

@Martijn Meerts, you bought the books by Kunihiko Ikeda, no?

 

I did buy several of them yes, I bought mine through amazon.com in Kindle format. Didn't have any issues, although not all are available on amazon.com
