Hello everybody

I was very busy in the last month to build my new little workaround.

And then I had enough - I must have been creative... and that's the result.

I've seen in many of your great posts a cool little "photographers environment" - and that's mine...

I looked in my rest box and took some wooden pieces...

Very nice.
Not only is this a nice photo studio but a great way to experiment with scenic details and just have some fun.
Thank you for the inspiration.

Woodie

Hi Thorsten :wave:

TOTALY ^^ AWESOME ! :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

Thanks for the step-by-step !
You made it look so easy.
& what a GREAT result !!

You obviously have the 'magic' green-fingers...
...when it comes to scenery.

I don't fancy a swim in the creek though !!

Can't wait to see the new loco in 'the studio' ;)

:moose:

Si.

Cool way to hold the track down when gluing :thumb:

What did you use for the brick-bridge ?
The bricks look really nice !

Really great work.

I suck at scenery.  Always have. 

But I am giving it another go.

Hi again Thorsten :wave:

I actually found some nice chequer-plate styrene a bit like yours.

For some strange reason, I can't seem to find a decent type in the U.K. ??

I got mine from http://www.greenstuffworld.com in Spain, I think.

They have some other rather nice embossed styrene sheets as well.

Water ripples in clear, stonework, corrugated etc. etc.

The P&P to the U.K. was quite low as well.

:moose:

Si.

Love that diorama ^^^ !! :bg:

Thank you everybody for the for the warm words.

But first I want to answer Si´s question about the bricks.

Hope that I could help you, Si.

The next pic show the bricks I take for buildings at the outside on my garden railway.

It´s a difference between 1/24 and 1/18

Hi Thorsten :wave:

Ah, yes, I see ... ' Juweela '
I know them for 1:35 bricks & paving etc.
I'll have to take a look at their bigger scales as well.
Thanks !

The wagons look brilliant in the 'photo booth' ;)
Looks like you have some great rolling stock.

The 1:18 outside building is fantastic !
What are you doing outside then ?
SM32 ish, or something ?

:moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

Cheers

Thorsten,

That ''outdoor'' building is simply fantastic.

Looks like even the dog is in awe!

Any more outdoor photos?

Thorsten

Your green grass looks very realistic.

What are you using to achieve such great results?

Hi Larry

The green grass is the summer 6mm spots from Noch.
The long grass in the creek is an old brush and moss - that's it.



Hello Herb

The outdoor project is my problem child.
My health in the last years was too bad to do what is to do,
but you'll find some pics in the gallery on my website  http://www.reepsiel.de  click on "Fotos" and you´ll find some.
 
You must know, that I'm in trouble with the scale.
I like LGB very much but my space in the garden, must say the space, my really good wife allowed is small! :)

I have enough, she says!
AAHHHH OK!
She is right cause of my health, it nearly impossible to stoop.

And the scale, I like 7/8 very much cause you have something in your hands.
We´ll see!

But!
I made the portal in my wintergarden.
Lets have a little look:

The most you'll find in the backyard, or the forest, or the kitchen, when your wife is not at home... :P

By the way... I haven't the time to build something new, cause we change the face of our backyard.

In the last days we carry tons of rocks, stones, sand and concrete. :Crazy:


My better half said, why - just tell me why!!!
I have many ideas but I can start with new things in the early winter! :Salute:

Excuse me Si, but in the last month I had much probs with my health.
My stomach is gone away now, and cause of that I lost 60 kilograms in the whole wide world.
I hope to have more time, and more energy in 2019. You know, there are many plans, but health first.
My daughter nicknames me "Klappergestell" - it means that my bones making music when I'm in movement.
:) - when I have something new, this forum will hear and see it first.
Thank you for the wake yell !!!
bye - Toddy

thx !!


Small place is what we have to much in Germany  :) -

to transform it in a shiny place is the challenge!


So Does GN mean German Narrow?  I don't know!  :) -

I have a great idea to build an island - 2 meters x 2 meters, with a bridge to the mainland.

The visitor can walk around and every side has another scale...

I will post it soon.

Hoping things are going well for you.

The stonework on the arch & ruins is wonderful.
