Re: How to build an animated diorama

Micro layout in O-16.5

Following on from my workbench dabbling in O-16.5 (see here ), I have decided I need somewhere to run my new trains :D Not being ready yet to start my next proper layout yet, I have decided to build a micro layout / diorama to get some experience in actual modelling in 7mm scale, maybe try out some ...

Anymore views from a train.

Re: And The Next Photo Will Have

Re: Reusable, modular layout base in N-gauge

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

Thanks Mountain - yes I quite like the small added coal bunker. Here is Edith May weathered :D - though now I see her up so close (!) I may tone down the rust on the running gear . . . https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7842/39833962893_2af6e7cb94_k.jpg IMG_9353 by Pink Nosed Penguin , on Flickr https:/...
