pizza quattro stagioni (snowflake challenge)

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

The four seasons pizza represented with the pizzeria "pizza-di Marco", a small loco pulling wagons loaded with sacks of flour, oil bottle olive, tomato concerve, bottles of Chianti...

Very good work.

Where did you get the cobble stones from?

Looks fantastic! The extra time taken casting your own cobbles really has made a difference. 8)

I have to agree with the other posters -- the cobbles and drains are fantastic! Looking forward to seeing how you develop the central building as well.

Great project!

not sure how I missed this thread, but can't remember seeing it before. Anyway it looks superb, and shows that a pizza is not just a circle of track but you can add that wagon turntale. Gives me an idea, but making it so it is not just a copy is the difficult thing. And then there is space(especially Z dimension it takes up and I am trying to only build small portable layouts but can be bigger as long as they pack up small.
