“I was lucky enough to see the world at a young age, always loved Holland and the people were wonderful.. Most of the rails in Europe are new and is a major form of transportation throughout…
I started Amsterken 4 years ago, most of the structures have been kit-bashed to resemble buildings in Amsterdam…. My pride is centraal station witch started as 4 Kibri city hall building kits . Made a roof real shingles and tried to copy the details on the station….Made all base from foam and covered it with body filler , before it dried i put a soft mold of bricks and when it hardened i pealled the mold off to reveal bricks like the ones in the canals… I put blacklights behide back drop left a space so light could show through. Painted walls blue and put some red lights for sun, also used paper which looks great with blk light . I run Roco track and trains all digital, Faller cars system, RC boats for the real water.
I have taken most of the layout down so i can put bladders in for real water, I built modules so its easy to take down , just in case I move. Kids have the best time with the fast clock for in / out bound trains bus schedules and rc boats… Till next time Amsterken out…. Thanks Alastair…
A big thanks to Ken – a wonderful layout. A joy to see Godzilla in there too.
Now here’s a video of my boy’s town – all made from his print out scenery. In fact, this download, gives you the very same town.
Please keep ’em coming.
