[1:12] First micro layout

Postby Chris Bergerac » Mon Jun 24, 2019 9:12 am

Hello Happy Members,
I also built this little critter (1:12 scale) on a Hornby 0-4-0 chassis. As always, I used cereal boxes (empty of course !). Because I don't have any 1:12 scale figure, I made this very strange driver (maybe you can recognize him... :mrgreen: ). I'm very pleased with the result.

As everybody knows, I'm not going for realism... :lol:

It's a slippery slope from modelling what pretty much equates to 7 1/4" gauge in 1/12 scale to realising it gives a very practical but small narrow gauge with plenty of potential in real life.

See the link below my signature for more. :D
