Ciao a tutti, here some infos again

On the long sides the layout is in the middle of a shelf, so you can imagine how hard is build a realistic landscape, so I’m trying only to hide the structure… (note: work in progress, nothing finished).




On the other corner, I built… the program was a short tunnel but it seems a mausoleum, I hope after adding details it goes back to original idea. Just waiting for inspiration about what put over it

Perhaps pick out the blocks at the edges of the openings to highlight them?
In deference to our American cousins, and the prospect of one of the persons winning, you could make the top of the tunnel into a 'grassy knoll'.
(I hope that will not be lost in translation). :giggle:

Very good effort to hide the shelving.
For the tunnel perhaps put some vegetation (bush, trees) on the inside corner to hide the other tunnel entrance.

I did a small layout for trams that's reminiscent. Your building yours mines still on paper.

Question from a newbie: am I the only one who can't see the map of the layout??
I am an approved member, by the way.

I get a image with a red cross through it.

Possibly due to some software that's not on my PC....

No, all the layout images have a red cross through them or me too, but at one time I could see them

I think from post 32 which I quote Bosrig - "mmmhh pictures missing for server crash, i add a few, again" looks like the reason for the red crosses, rather than something here at GSC.

The pictures are linked to an external (to the Forum) site.. So they have been moved, or deleted, I would say.

I Like your layout very much. Do you have tips or trics how you build the fence, the tram shed, the tunnel?
