Today's efforts have been focused on building one of the key foreground objects - the grape press...



and now that the track is down starting to fill in the ground decor...

The paving is 10mm foam board with the patterns pressed in with a blunt pencil.
If you get "Continental Modeller" magazine there's been a whole series of articles by Emmanuel Nouaillier on using foam board. The February 2010 issue is on road surfaces. His articles are for HO, but it's even easier when you scale up to G.

Slow progress this week with the tedious but ultimately satisfying business of hand impressing the paving and brickwork and then sponging in the paintwork. This is now largely done apart from a ramp and steps etc...





I've also done a bit more on the grape press and loading platform...



Extended the right hand loading dock track so it can connect with "Normand",

I'm waiting on various items...
30 wine barrels from 'Monsieur Maquettes'
Pantile roofing sheets from 'back2bay6'
Preiser figures from 'Dragon G Scale'

Next priorities are...
Wiring the underside
Building the hinged return rail section
Ballasting and completing the decor around the front rail

That is very effective Brian and the details will make it.

I am going to try polystyrene too (10mm ceiling tiles) to fill in my try track.

What are you going to do with the 'track into the sky'. Did you find a suitable picture?

My only concern with using a sky backscene (which I am not because of the building) is connecting it to other people's sky...but then I suppose that's the same with the rest of the scenery.

If anyone thinks I haven't replied to Carl's post above! I have! It's just that it's been moved to the NORMAND thread!

Finished the ballasting and the basic scenery now reaches the front of the module...









Loads more detailing to do but not this week as I'm off to England on Wednesday

Snow at Limoges airport permitting

I posted this pic on the "barrels" thread as well. But here are the latest additions to the module...

The barrels look better here than on their website.
I have ordered some other varieties on e bay.

The figure looks good. I feel I've seen him before but where does he come from?

Finished wiring the main part of the module today, essentially there are three track sections to the module...

The main track at front (1), and the rear return line(2) which is behind the back scene, these two are both linked to the rest of the MOMI circuit via banana plugs at the rear

The sidings / loading dock track(3) which is electrically isolated and can be either switched to the main MOMI (to receive incoming locos) or switched by means of a DPDT switch to a separate local supply for shunting operations.


I could get a birds eye view of the module whilst it was on it's back for wiring


As I am making my return rail (2) section removable I've provided Cannon plugs/sockets in the front part of the module


Here the return rail (3) baseboard is being constructed


Rather than hinges I'm now going to attach it with coach bolts and wing nuts

The advantage of making it completely removable means that I'll be able to integrate it into a small oval layout by adding two semi circles of R1 track at each end!

Here is the rear baseboard finished and in place ready for track laying.

Hello

I'm back in the land of the living! Just recovering from a virus infection which even saw me overnight in "Urgences" in Hospital at St Junien the other weekend!

As a result, the module hasn't been touched (nor indeed the garden railway which now has weeds knee high) and is in exactly the same state as last reported - all dimensions are the same!

It's going to take me at least a couple of weeks to catch up with other immediate projects here including the swimming pool and horses, so won't have anything to report until at least June.

Sorry for my late response but the last three weeks have been HELL

Very sorry to hear your news; hope that you've fully recovered and that it won't stop us meeting up in early June when we'll be down there again. I'll call.

Best wishes,

I've done a bit more on the module... completed the building roofs and put relevant signage on the restuarant/advertising wagon....







Edit... The Zillertalbahn decals will disappear before the exhibition.

Also acquired a small diesel shunter to haul the barrel wagons and tweaked a Bachmann Driver to be a bit more French...

Splendid Brian.

Very cleverly done posters.

I really thought for a moment there was actually a marque of Cognac called Brianb and I was trying to figure out how to pronounce the word. scratch

I have been working on my module too but very slowly at the moment.
