After modelling 2 layouts at gn15 scale (maple shack and vulcan iron works) I switch to 7/8 th scale (or 1/12 scale, doll house scale). It's a fictional layout for fisherman located at woolacombe (north devon, uk). The size is 140 cm by 72.5 cm plus a fiddle yard not shows). The base is an hollow core door plus pink foam on it and a little plaster.

I made some progress during september : I rust the rail, put 2 layers of sand and I begin to add few plants.

Just what every good beach needs! Very nice, particularly the rusty and salt-stained buffers.

I have to ask, what are all the trophies for? Your modelling maybe?

The trophies are not mine, I'm not doing train for that and I have not enough talent unfortunately. I belong to a club of train, boat, air plane and kits. All the trophies belong more or less to the boat section (world championship, world record, ...).

Excellent in its simplicity. Thanks for sharing it with us.


I think the most striking part that really set's the whole module off is the frontage...in the same weathered, driftwoody style as the wood on the model...very very effective.

I saw/smelt something like that on Steve Cook's "Dungeness Siding" in gauge 1. He had a sea weedy smell blowing through a section of pipe above or behind it

very nice. Like others, I like the rust and weathering on the wood. Subtle and not overdone. Tres bien!

I took inspiration on Steve Cook's "Dungeness Siding" that did an excellent work.

This is the crab shack for selling the crabs and fish. I will need to do a little weathering on the roof, add the logo, fisherman and accessories
