Despite having to concentrate on Tallahatchie, I have been giving a little time to Isla Blanca. I'm leaving the docks back-scene to evolve (although I do have a couple of images to edit and use), but ...

Had some time to improve the population numbers today. The seated chap in the background of the last photo lost his head (and one arm); a new head was swapped with a spare figure - a man in suit with ...

The two new pieces of rolling stock; apologies for the sun-flare (had hands full with camera and paper reflector to light up the foreground).

Having set up that little cameo has made me think about Tallahatchie's population. Luckily I've remembered where I stored my unpainted figures, so got them out and ran a scale rule over them. A few le ...

My afternoon of modelling turned into less than an hour so the flat car didn't get finished (or photographed). Here is how it looked a couple of days ago - now it has a planked deck with brake wheel, ...
