That looks good Andrew.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Just come across this great thread. You have all created some lovely scenes. I have recently finished a farmers market scene on my Swiss layout, hope you don't mind me taking the thread overseas.

Wow, that looks great John  :D

As Martin says, the market atmosphere is captured perfectly. The figures intereacting with each other at the stalls, and those walking together, or just sitting in the sun create a perfect little scene.  :thumbsup:

Excelent modelling, and a great picture

All best wishes
Kevin

Great scene you have created there and the hint of a train frames it perfectly ... lots of well placed people, the corpulent gentleman examining one of the stalls keeps standing out for me :)

Yay .... It is you Mike  :D :D :D



You reminded me of when I worked Saturdays in a hardware shop and the boss asked me to fetch him an "amafore"..... "wot's an amafore ? " ....... " 'ittin in nails ! "

Does anyone else want to post any pics of their little cameo scenes ?  It might give people some ideas for their layouts  :thumbsup:

All best wishes

Many many years ago on work experience, I went to see what working in a truck garage was like, they pulled the left handed screwdriver, a long weight and a sky hook, I fell for all of them, being I want to make a good impression and get a good report back to my teachers of course.

The best one i ever heard about was the local Peugeot dealership sending their apprentice mechanic over the road to the builders merchants for

"A metre of fallopian tube"

The dude behind the counter, knowing he'd heard of such an item, merrily trots into his bosses office

"Stuart, have we got any fallopian tube???"

 :smackedface: :smackedface: :smackedface:

If only them mechanics knew they'd got 2 fools st the same time!!  :P

sending newbies to the stores for a tin of elbow grease was a common practice in the refinery!

I very much regret to say, that in my mis-spent youth working in a supermarket, new shelf fillers would be sent to get a case of 'Brown Andrex' from the warehouse supervisor.  Back then, lavatory paper in a wide array of colours was stocked, as it was the height of 'ghastly good taste', so almost all these innocents did not realise the jolly jape until too late.
'Why does the Disney Castle work so well?  Because it borrows from reality without ever slipping into it.'

(Acknowledgement: John Goodall Esq, Architectural Editor, 'Country Life'.)

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 1920s to the 1950s.
