The overhead wiring is awesome. Not enough people do that.

Yeah, I think it really adds to the ambiance.

Excellent layout.

Good things come in small packages!

Having been to Japan, I can only state that you have captured the atmosphere of a Japanese town very well!
Cheers!

This is pretty freekin' sweet. And on top of all the scenery impressiveness you've also mashed out a track plan that works equally well as a point-to-point or with idiot running. Nice all around.

Happy New Year!

 

First of all, we'd like to wish you all a happy new year and all the best for 2013!

As you may have noticed, we have made the switch to the new forum software. Not everything is complete converted yet, so some bits and pieces will be unavailable for a couple more days, and some templates haven't been fully integrated yet (such as the one for this new frontpage :)), but we'll be working on fixing all of that in the coming days. The forum itself should be fully functional.

Chances are high there are some bugs, missing graphic elements, user permissions set wrong, etc. We'd like to ask all of you to send a PM to the admins (or, more specifically to Martijn) so we can fix any problems as soon as they come up.

Lastly, thank you all for visiting and contributing to the forum, and sticking with us even when the forum software wasn't entirely cooperative =)

Hi,

due to a hint in this forum I found a suitable background for you layout. My sister-in-lay wondered why I put a bavarian background to my japanese modeltrain, but I told her that it looks partial similar to Germany.

That looks like a good backdrop to me. And it adds depth to the layout.  I also like the way the colors of the layout trees merge into those on the backdrop.

That backscene finishes it off very nicely. In fact, the shape of those mountains looks more Japanese than Bavarian...so you have had a pretty good find there.

If you hadn't told me I wouldn't have know that it was a Bavarian and most people wouldn't know either. It looks great and adds depth to the layout. (The photos you posted show that.)

Tosadan, out of curiosity, what did you give your sister-in-law as a gift for Christmas this year? If it was something like a "power drill" or "jumper cables" for her car.....you're in trouble. :grin

Oh sorry, I forgot a sentence in my previous post. This background is not bavarian, it´s japanese and I found it from this article: http://www.jnsforum....pic,3934.0.html

I used this background http://shiagenin.mic...p/sanmyaku.html and mirrored it.

@Bernard: no no, I won´t give her something like that ;-)

Yes, I thought it was Japanese, the terrain is very vertical relative to depth.  Though in Bavaria from pictures I've seen there is a similar verticality.  Nice model too!

Hi,

I decided to build a extension of my N layout. Please take a look at the overview:

Posted Image

Here you can see the extension a little bit better. It meassures 50x40cm and is nearly as large as the original part.

Posted Image

Don´t worry about the missing switches ;-)

For the terminal of the tram I will use the Tomix tram rail accessories

Posted Image

Here you can see a macro view of it. I think it´s pretty cool and such a thing in H0 would be wonderful, too :-)

Posted Image

Still 2 weeks for the Intermodellbau fair, where I hope to buy the missing parts (switches and buildings).

Last wednesday I visited the Intermodellbau in Dortmund, a fair for modelbuilders and I bought some new parts for the extension of my layout:

Posted Image

Please ignore the books in the background, they have nothing to do with my layout.

I´ve built the following 6 houses of the Greenmax kit.


Posted Image

And so looks my extension on this evening:

Posted Image

Please take a look at some details:

First the park:

Posted Image

I´ve made the water with a white glue for wood that is called Ponal. When it dries it becomes transparent.


And a second detail shows us the houses along the street:

I hope you like it, too :-)

@Jeff:
Thanks, I hope the details are correct and fit together. Unfortunately I can´t read the ads :-(

@Nick:
I bought all parts from a german store. You can find them in the internet, too: www.japanmodelrailways.com

I hope I can use the catanary poles for my japanese layout, too, although Dapol used an european model.

Do you remember who makes them? Tomytec, GM? I've look at the site and couldn't find it...

"Dapol" is the manufacturer: http://shop.strato.d...jectID=26828623 (the German page says that only 10 pieces are included!)
