There was a thing in a magazine interview (some may recognise which one) which asked the interviewees: If you have unlimited skill, time and resources, which loco would you model? The vast majority of responders came up with big, complicated locomotives. If I were to answer I would say something re...

Hi, Franck - I am looking for more information and pictures of the first "ironing board" layout shown you quoted from KEG's post; the one with the decidedly Mediterranean Village theme. I scanned the 40 pages of that link you provided, but didn't see anything. Can you, or anyone else, hel...

I don´t know, how many Iron Board Layouts were shown at Sedan last year.

Attractive sailboat in background of that one photo. 30 inches long for the hull - looking at photos that makes the layout easily 6 or 7 feet long. Aw man, even with Dad in Navy while I was growing up, don't have ideas on how to model water as described - was too intimidated by the job to try it - ...

I was with Thomas at RAMMA so had a good look. It is superb. Wish I could get to more French exhibitions. Even when I finally move there, most seem to be in the northern half, but there are a few big clubs not far from me so hope there will be something closer. I show my woolacombe bay layout at th...

On the hole the mega sized (Hypermarkets) seem to be the best but they don't sell wood etc. Should use my local builders merchant but my French is not good e...
