After the hold up of Photobucket and the advise of the moderator, I start a new topic
I post 5 old photos. 0 1 by franck combe, sur Flickr 2 by franck combe, sur Flickr 3 by franck combe, sur Flickr 4 by franck combe, sur Flickr 5 by franck combe, sur Flickr

Since few days, I work on the layout. This is the top view of the layout. IMG_8115 by franck combe, sur Flickr This is the hidden part of the layout. I want to thank my friend Claude Deschamps for the electronic part. IMG_8116 by franck combe, sur Flickr This is the general overview of the layout IMG_8117 by franck combe, sur Flickr I ordered a porter from minitrains. I was badly surprised by the default on electrical pick-up (quality of Germany and made in China I supposed).

In Morocco, there is a track motor car for the military head quarter transport.

Hi Franck,
Thanks for bringing Sidi Fontana back to life. It is a fascinating layout :bow::bow::bow:

I'm looking forward to the "staff car" build.  Please keep the photos coming as you make progress,

WOW, great work.
Just when you think you've seen every type of model railroad, something like this shows up!

Thank you for the comment. I try always to model uncommon things at unusual scale.

Hi Franck :wave:



I agree. great choice & unusual subject !



You always seem to make the most of 'space' Franck ...

... whether it is this, or 7/8ths.



I can guess, but I'm curious to know the size of the layout ?



Fantastic sense of depth, with the different 'layers'.

Your custom photo backdrop really sets off the models nicely.



:bg:



Si.

When you want to do a small layout, the space is always tricky, because it's a nice challenge.

The size of the layout is for 120 cm by 30 cm for the visible part and with the half oval 120 cm by 60 cm

For the custom photo backdrop, I choose it carefully and then I build the layout according the backdrop for soil, buildings and trees. Like that the layout and the backdrop seems to be only one.
