I like it! My only suggestion is to add lots of weeds. They will grow anyplace that they aren't trod down or cut.

REALLY good work, but the cameraman has me a little confused, he's using a pre-1880s camera in the late 1940s at least. Were such cameras common there that late in history?

Sorry, I always latch onto details like that...

It' s a photographer who collects old cameras, he also loves trains.

Lovely work, Gilbert. And I've just made a cameraman and camera like that for a litle diorama of the Spitfire Prototype's first flight. They certainly had those cameras here in the thirties.

Cheers,

Not splitting hairs and pointing fingers, I was just curious about the camera, as I have a working Speed Graphic 4X5 format camera from the late 30s and I notice stuff like that...

These are details that I have amassed over the years.
Some are from my own production, other : Grandt Line, Wrightline, tools and machines form CHB, (now Sierra West), Back shop, Berkshire Valley, Scale Structures Ltd, etc.

Is not a diorama, but my layout,  see here http://www.gilbert-gribi.ch

Fantastic work Gilbert! I love all the details.

But how did you get  this done? I refer to the roof beam and the horizontal beam at the bottom of the photo. They're in the same plane but it looks like the horizontal one comes in front of the roof beam. L:

Hi Gilbert,
That is an excellent plan with the best bits of all worlds - maritime, industrial, urban, and rural.
Well thought out operationally and brilliantly done scenically.

Is this layout your permanently-mounted home layout, or is it designed for future exhibition work?

As you say in your blog:
"Vive le Freelance, vive la liberté." :2t:

Hi john
This is a fixed layout which is in our house in France.
It is not possible to transport it. 25m2 (6.75 x 2.7)
Next year there will be a book, unfortunately only in French.

G'day Gilbert
Two more works of art!!! :glad::glad: The ferry and the apron to tie it to.

The ferry looks well maintained but is in need of its annual "spruce up". You have captured the look of a hard-working sea-worthy vessel that is in need of some TLC when the crew can get the time.

The apron is well done. The handrails are exquisite. :2t:

Like the ferry, reminded me of the ferry I rode to get to
and from the airport in Prince Rupert BC, although not a rail ferry, always had to take a look in the engine room with it's 6 cylinder inline diesel with fore and aft clutch's for driving it.

I love the railroads of Switzerland!!!!




Just spent a very enjoyable rails and trails visit in Switzerland last month. Your modeling brings back a lot of good memories.

I really like the car float! IT'S great to see a NG one. I've wanted to make one too, even though I've only seen them in standard gauge.

Here's the model of a 30" gauge one. The original is still extant and there are plans to refurbish it for NG ferrying operation.

Hi Guys :wave:

I have to say, I love a decent car-float !
Maybe one day.

If standard or 'wide' narrow-gauge is too big for you...
...check out this rusty old hulk !

Not very 'stylish' & the Captain drinks like a fish...
...but on the 'funky scale' it score HIGH !

What the rest says, it looks great. What I personally like is the spring setting. Most of the time layouts are build in summer or winter period. Spring and autumn looks like are very seldom modeled.

Hello
Some news from my website.
For different reasons my website was no more accessible for longtime.
This is no longer the case, his new address is now http://www.gilbert-gribi.com
Soon I will put the plans of the buildings of my layout and other new information including photos of my last diorama "The old bear meadows".
