    My new track coming to life

    Great looking layout ! Here are some links to some posts I made on my blog showing the techniques I used for water on my Japanese Ntrak module. http://tokyo-in-nscale.blogspot.com/2014/08/adding-water-to-river-scene.html http://tokyo-in-nscale.blogspot.com/2015/06/adding-water-feature.html

    Congratulations guys on a successful exhibition. I too really enjoy your layout. A great mix of modules representing many scenes of Japan and they flow together quite nicely. Well done !

    What did you order or the post deliver?

    There is an add on set for 10-555 and it is 10-556. I think the main difference between this set and the one you have is that yours is DCC ready and mine is not. Mine does have a little switch under car 9 to turn off the head / tail lights if coupled to the add on set.

    AsiaNrail at the Hiller Avation Museum

    Yes, thanks Junior for making it on a week day. And for some great photos. I had not realized that I had so many scenes of people eating until this show but I think it fits. I'll be there today (Wednesday), hopefully on Friday, and of course on Sunday.

    Yesterday I picked up this Kato model of the 683 series Thunderbird. My wife and I had ridden on this one during our trip to Japan last year. Then when I got home the Greenmax kits that I won on ebay a couple weeks ago had finally arrived.

    What did you do on your layout today?

    I recently finished some legs for a small 40+ year old module that was given to me a couple years ago. Today I took the big step of scraping off the original track and scenery and cutting a section out of one side to start creating a coastal scene. This module will be used to expand a modular layout I belong to called AsiaNrail. We actually have that layout set up right now at an aircraft museum for a week long exhibition but today being a holiday the museum was closed.

    AsiaNrail at the Hiller Avation Museum

    Friday (yesterday) was setup day for the Hiller show. In this first photo Paul and I have unloaded our vehicles and are ready to start setting up the layout. A few hours later we had the layout set up and running ! We got some help from Sam (Kiha66) and from Julia of the Peninsula Ntrak club. During that time the FreemoN group also showed up and got a start on their layout seen in the background.

    This can happen when you list a bunch of stuff as "Buy it Now" and at good prices. I have done my share of ebay selling myself and avoid taking on more than I can handle at once because it is a lot of work.

    I just today got notification that my order has shipped.

    Some of the younger folks might ask "What is SASE ?"

    That's great Sam. Glad I got what I did yesterday cause they are all gone now.

    That was what I suspected at first. As I have been adding some of the old Greenmax buildings into the Trovestar N Scale database I have noticed some of the boxes have a "Mokei Imports" sticker so that would seem to confirm that at least the Greenmax kits passed through Mokei at some point.

    Just picked up two Greenmax # 36 kits on ebay for a project I want to start. This is the viaduct set with shops under the track. This seller has quite a few Japanese items at reasonable prices and is in the US so shipping was reasonable for me. https://www.ebay.com/sch/N-Scale/19119/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&_ssn=tma3015&_sac=1 Saw that he also had an old Tomix 2816 (125 type car for 100 series Shinkansen) but it had already sold. I need 2 of those and a 2816 (126 type) to complete my full 16 car train that I started in 1997 !

    Hot Springs on a mountain slope

    As much as I like the TomyTec structure kits, I find that many of them have bases that are too tall. On the Hot Springs Hotel building I simply did not use the base and set the building into a .040 deep pit. On the Sake shop I did use the base but set it into a deeper pit. http://tokyo-in-nscale.blogspot.com/2014/09/building-tomytec-sake-shop.html For building lights I use LED boards that I have removed from American prototype Atlas and Kato locomotives. This post show that the best. http://tokyo-in-nscale.blogspot.com/2014/12/details-lighting-inside-sake-shop.html The winding road was cut from a piece of .030 styrene sheet. Attached to the already cut out hill side with liquid nails, then gaps filled in the drywall mud which is something I use a lot for scenery. I was wondering is that 3D printed base all one piece ?

    Hot Springs on a mountain slope

    That's going to be really nice scene Jan. I used one of the same TomyTec buildings for a similar but smaller scene on one of my Ntrak modules. I also have a winding road between the local station and the Hot Springs and made some road mirrors for my road. That may be something you could also do with 3D printing as I have never seen any available commercially. A couple of links below show some of my project. I will look forward to seeing how your project comes progresses. http://tokyo-in-nscale.blogspot.com/2014/11/finishing-hot-springs-hotel.html http://tokyo-in-nscale.blogspot.com/2015/06/hot-springs-junction-wrap-up.html
