Fantastic! The bridge is an excellent location to model - and the film's entertaining too!

More scenic work this weekend. On the east bank the line disappears under the Erpeler Ley. On top of the mountain is an anti-aircraft battery, with 88mm guns, barracks and radar station. Most of this weekend has been spent on building the Fraya radar. The model is a resin and etched brass model from Brengun. The quality is very good, however its a complete pain to build due to the small component parts. Anyway, its all together and positioned on the layout. But next weekend I should have it painted.

The Second World War really interests me and to see this being build is heaven, the detail is bloody amazing and I love what your doing here. Keep updating with pics etc and this is one of my favourite layouts this year. Great work

Many years ago, I used to build / convert / scratchbuild 4MM scale WW2 Desert Campaign models so am also very interested in this diorama.

All soldered together. Don't look too closely as my soldering isn't great, and its still covered in flux..

More work done of the Erpeler Ley over the week. Finally got a rock face that looks right.



Progress has been slowed slightly by my new toy. Almost finished rebuilding it.



A word of advise. Motorbikes and trains don't mix in the same space...

Would the bike be a Bantam? I always wanted one of those in the 60s, but ended up with a Lambretta 250 instead.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.
