Brian’s layout video

Fred has sent in the pics below of his layout. Another one to make me envious!

And Brian’s video made me think how his stunning pics don’t do his layout justice…

(Images are clickable).

“Al, as can be seen in this view, some of the building are complete and the card stock ones are of kits to be built.

The reason for cardstock mock-ups is for kit bashing purposes before building the actual kit and messing it up is because if it does not fit the area that I want it in then you have a dilemma..


Latest ‘ebay cheat sheet’ is here.

Please do keep sending in your pics and tips – I enjoy them as much as you.

    Nice job. What scale is it? It looks like “Garden ” scale. How big is the whole layout? You must be single, my wife does not mind me having a layout, I just can’t take over the whole house with it.

    Great layout Fred. Good job using flowers and small trees as part of the layout.

    Good job Brian.

    WOW!!!!!!!!!! Is the first word that came to mind when I saw the pictures first. Then the video another WOW for the showing on it. I would like to see a video of the exterior RR. An idea came to me when I saw that your RR went by your mailbox. U could really freak out your neighbors if U rigged up a loading system that would put your mail onto a gondola to bring it into your house for U. But keep up the great work U have done on your layout.

    What else can one say, your Garden Layout looks fantastic. The other layout is coming along okay, as well. But if you find the time a video of your Garden layout would be much appreciated, by all us modelers, who wish we had more room. Anyway thanks for sharing what you have.
