These last several posts are the ones I'd somehow missed before, Franck. I love looking at your work.... It's fantastic!

Lovely layout lots of lovely details and the wagons and losos are ace - Iwould just go on say planet figure or historicus forma and have alook at their painted figures fore a more realistic figures - not hard just need a few more layers.

I agree with you but I'm a figure painter (i hate that) but I 'm conscious of the problem.

During the exhibition, I  was very pleased to meet Simon HARRIS.  It was a pleasure and an honor for me that he runs his  loco and rolling stocks on my layout. He gave me also the excellent idea of the chain shunting, brilliant ! I was also impressed by his battery loco, a system that I ignore all because I'm in DCC.

I had the pleasure to meet also  Stephan, Peter and  3 - 4 others 7/8 th scale modellers (I hope the will forgave me to not be able to site them).

I'm already invite for 3 others exhibitions in UK so I hope it will be another occasion to meet others 7/8th scale modellers.

Articles will be written in British railway modelling and in narrow gauge industrial railway modelling review on the Woolacombe Bay so I hope it will contribute a little to the development of this fantastic scale.


Few photos of the layout during the exhibition with loco and rolling stock from Simon Harris

The flat depressed car is a marvellous

That photo of the two of you give a sense of how large 7/8" model are.

WOW!

That's what I was thinking, Herb but I was also thinking about how nice the models look in that scale. I wonder.....

I will do the exhibition in october at à Sedan (France) , then in novembre at Rail Expo (near Paris). I will exhibit also at The London festival of Raiway Modelling in 22 March 2014 - 23 March 2014. I will come with a lister and a ruston that are nearly ready.

It will be another occasion to meet others 7/8 modellers.
