In true Tomytec tradition, the kit isn't burdened with an over-abundance of parts :thumbsup:


My goodness, they don't leave you much to do, do they! Most of the fun is loosing all the tidily fiddly bits!

Cheers  :beers:

Zero progress today as we're dog-sitting for friends.  Shih Tzus Hugo and Ralph are such a chore :no:

Blimey, Steve, the pressure's tremendous!

So much to do - so little time...

And what will Kato think of your friends?

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

Mmmm, nice etch!

Kobaru MP-29L Net Fence (High)
One etch of three lengths per pack.  Each individual length is 102.5mm in length and 13mm high over the posts.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kobaru-MP-29L-Net-Fence-High-N-scale/202310514502

Other styles and sizes are available within the range, I bought this one as a tester to see what the quality was like.  No regrets!
