All done with wires, pulleys and magnets.

The trees lining the street are real too.

That's fantastic!

If I was a cop on that street though, I'd be pulling almost everyone over for a sobriety check. Most of the car drivers can't seem to stay in their own lane. There's a couple of near-misses with the oncoming bus, it made me worried someone was going to get hurt :)

The bus driver heading this way doesn't seem to care too much about pulling back into traffic and leaving the cab hanging either!

I love the trees!

Hi Ian,

Thanks for that. Great stuff. I like the people crossing best.

Cheers weave  :beers:

PS @LASteve , I know it's Japan but if one was modelling Surrey or Hampshire UK it would be perfect as there are loads of idiots who drive like that perfectly sober, buses who think they own the road and anyway, you wouldn't be a cop on that street as there aren't any  :D

The pedestrian crossing is a bit reminiscent of the Abbey Road album!  ;D

Yes very good Another project to build!

I like the way it has been framed by the buildings to keep the figures out of view untill the cross the road.  I presume the cars are tomytec or similar?  The crossing looks hand made

Yup, I'm pretty sure they're Tomytec ones. Which "freewheel" very well, so very suitable for a project like this.

They sell them at our local hardware superstore chain (Bunnings, for Australasian types), but how genuine they are, I'm not sure.

I think getting mature humans can take a long time too. I'm older than most oak trees, but mature? Nah!

I reckon the Police car is the worst offender! :D
