Thanks for that Juergen.

I love the way the stage lighting represents that which is suggested by the lamps on the layout. Pity about the hand of god tipping the wagons though... ;)

Thanks for the post Juergen. Do you know anything about the sound unit installed on the critter? I would very much like to add sound to my small critters but do not know of any small motor sound units.

Sorry, I have no idea, what B. Junk or others are using for sound. The electronic parts seem to be very small and expensive these days.

A good place to ask for advise might be FREE RAILS http://www.freerails.com/view_category.php?id=1

Here is annother famous example of Bernard Junk´s extra ordinary modelling

Otto Schouwstra does no longer offer his innovative sound system;

Thanks for the photos. Do you know what the basic size (length and width) the layout is please? It certainly looks quite small but with 7/8ths scale things a generally bigger than they seem!

cheers,

Thanks.

That's quite small for a 7/8ths layout.

Just received latest issue of Voie Libre, and guess what's on front cover. Better picture of the lorry. To quote the magazine translation
the lorry is a subtle blend of extruded foam, 2 mm thick card and Fimo clay parts

Has anyone else noticed the model of a small green Feldbahn locomotive on the bookshelf in the office? Brilliant indeed -- excellent work.

The guy in the office is based on a fellow modeler, so, in addition to a model of a modeler, why not include a model of his model ? :wink:

maybe we should leave it to Matjdelo to explain. Looking carefully at one photo, and I think I can see a pile of copies of Voie Libre 8) next to the model engine.

I can explain ! It's me in the office, Jacques Mart, my full name is Matthieu Jacquemart ! Bernard makes many winks and effectively, there's a voie libre on the desk, this is the voie libre with the layout plan that we present in Utrecht, Riffelalp !

I would love to see a track plan for this layout.
Does anyone have an image of it (I don't get "Voie Libre")?
Bernard Junk certainly does wonderful modeling work!
