Whats been keeping me away from Gn15, well this is one thing. A WIP 1/48th diorama of a Pacific airstrip that includes RNZAF aircraft and vehicles and a former Japanese Imperial Navy airfield construction 2ft gauge tramway (12mm gauge). A recent addition is an additional baseboard so I can also include a maritime element.

The IJN had hundreds of narrow gauge locos and sets of portable track to assist with construction or ports and airfields as they had only limited quantities of engineer plant. A tramway seen in this photo

Slow progress and a few more trees and scratchbuilt vehicles.

This is coming along very nicely. I especially like the waves coming on shore, they look most realistic to my eye. :)
