After modelling 2 layouts at gn15 scale (maple shack and vulcan iron works) I switch to 7/8 th scale (or 1/12 scale, doll house scale). It's a fictional layout for fisherman located at woolacombe (north devon, uk). The size is 140 cm by 72.5 cm plus a fiddle yard not shows). The base is an hollow core door plus pink foam on it and a little plaster.

I made some progress during september : I rust the rail, put 2 layers of sand and I begin to add few plants.

Or there-abouts.
Or am I nuts ?

You are right, 7/8 th scale is 45 mm gauge at 1/13.7 scale, that means 60 cm or more or less 2 foot real gauge.

The backdrop adds a very realistic view to the layout! Impressive work! Keep up posting your progress, is nice to see how to work with big scales.

Franck,

I love seaside layouts and yours is beautiful very inspiring.

The background fits perfectly. Did you take the photo by yourself?

The integration of he boundary design to the overall design of the layout appeals markedly good. :2t:

Unfortunatly it's not my photo. I spent holidays in the past at Woolacombe (north devon uk)  but at that I didn't imagine I will do a layout on such theme. I keep the photo at posterxxl.com. This photo is in fact a photo from an australia beach but it's look like the woolacombe one.
