Hi Franck.

Nice work dude.
I like the 'box' (theatre-box ?) style.
Real nice backdrop photo...
...did you take the pic. on holiday ?

All the best.
Cheers.
Si.

P.S. Do they wear Wellington-boots in Morocco ?
&
Are you planning to make any in 1/72 ?

:moose:

Hi SI,

I bought the photo from dreamstime.com.

I never seen Wellington-boots in Morocco, but perhaps theu used it for keeping water inside like a flask :time::time:. It's more oriental slipper in morocco.

The rolling stock will be at 1/76, the rest at 1/72.

Hi Franck.

I think the oriental-slippers will be about 3.4mm long in 1/74...

...I figure about a Euro size-9, or thereabouts !

Cheers.

Si.

P.S.
Did you get the desk-magnifier ?

If you want a great recommendation...
...I just got one.

It has about 100 LEDs.
A very LARGE lens, with smaller inset 'extra-powerfull' optic, at the bottom (glass).
Exellent arm & base.
No heat, so great for painting.

I got mine in the UK...
...but it's made in China (of course), so probably available in France easily.

I'm 101% delighted (groan) with it...
...it's hard to imagine they could have designed any thing better.

It's also a ***** desk-lamp with great pure-white colour rendition for painting etc.

I'll find a link if you're interested.

Hi Franck. :wave:

Very sorry for the late come-back on this one.
I've been CRAZY busy & haven't had time to be on Freerails for a bit. :f:
Just got your P.M...
...I don't seem to be getting direct eMails from Freerails for some reason ? :us:

- - - - - - -

Here's the link to where I got my magnifier.

It's from CPC.co.uk

They are the same company as :-
Farnell.
Element 14.

I know these guys trade in France/Europe...
...as I've had stuff from them coming from Normandy & Brussels.

I'm sure you can find it at your favorite supplier as well.
I figure the 'key' search-term is '90 LED magnifier'...
...as this one seem to be the only one offering 90 LEDs (makes sense !!).

http://cpc.farnell.com/unbranded/sh-8095ledmgl/magnifier-lamp-90-led-4-25-lens/dp/LA0483587?ost=la0483587

They have a 20% off SPECIAL until 7th August. :bg:

The price is £39.54p (+VAT/TAX) & Free P&P.



It is advertised as having a 4.25" lens...
...but in fact, the lens is a WHOPPING GREAT 6.75" wide. :shocked::shocked::shocked:
It's VERY sharp & has NO edge-distortion ... N I C E !

It's also VERY HEAVY !
I've LUNGED at it after a couple of large Merlots... :Crazy:
...& it hasn't even flinched !!! (there's NO WAY it will EVER get knocked over).

Also the P.S.U is in the lamp-base, NOT an annoying 'wall-wart' add on...
...this is exellent, straight in the A.C & good to go.
No heat, no flicker, no bad colour-spectrum.

- - - - - - -

As the electric-shaver guy on the tube says...

..." I was so impressed, I bought the company ! " :Salute:

Cheers.

Si.

:moose:

I have done some progress with figures, trees (more than 140) and buildings.

My friend Jean-Pierre draw a rolling specificly for this layout. We hanve now to prind it. We are going to print it one at Sculptéo, one at  shapeaway in translucid ultra frost detail and one at immaterialize in order to compare the various quality of suppliers

Here's wishing success to y'all. Interesting little wagon/car/van, whichever one is the correct term, there.
