..., the corpulent gentleman examining one of the stalls keeps standing out for me :)

I really don't think he should be eyeing up the cheese. :D

Another little scene that I am quite pleased with, tucked away behind the river bridges on my layout. Apologies if anyone is shocked.

I really lke that. Very unusual.
 Think the very slight reflections in the water really help to make the photo.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Nice atmospheric scene John. I like the very large blue-green frog on the waters edge that seems to have startled the guy atop the boulder to its left. :D

Hi Mike. I hadn't noticed but yes, it does look like a frog. :D
I think the "startled guy" looks like a sloth. :hmmm: Some of these N Gauge figures don't look too good in close-up do they?

Realistic then, as I think that applies to rather a lot of full-size figures in the same state too! :D

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.

The figures look great, but HOW did you make that tree - the leaves look fantastic!

Hi "sp1"
I wish I could claim the credit but my limited modelling skills don't extend to tree making. :(
The tree is one of the twisted wire range from https://www.themodeltreeshop.co.uk

Hi Kevin, Martin, Andrew and John,

Just to say wonderful little (and big) scenes. Great modelling and hope one day to be able to post something of merit here too.

Keep 'em coming.

Cheers weave  :beers:
