8" gauge garden railway in G scale

Postby Shozo.K » Tue Aug 07, 2007 11:01 am

Hi,
I'm new here.
I made a GNine miniature pike on the pen tray represents an 8" gauge garden railway.
Cause I made my garden railway in G scale but in fact I wanted to build larger scale one to ride on.
Then I built it with G scale model and enjoying an imagination.
The design of the brick pavement resembles my small backyard with LGB layout.

Hi and welcome to the Gnatterbox. That is a wonderful little garden railway and I really like the small railcar. The clean and simple lines keep the attention focused on the models and would look great in any home, I like this style of modelling very much. Your website is also very interesting, the Vespa railcar is my favourite :) . It is good to see you here.

I do like the attention to detail in many Japanese models. Very simple but well executed. Congratulations :D
Andrew Milner, still trying to figure it out....

Lovely little railway..I enjoyed looking at your site too - the sail cars are great!
Welcome to the Gnatterbox :D

Just noticed that your propeller racers are 1/24 on 16.5mm track - Gn15!!

Hi all,

Thank you for your friendly comments.
I am very happy that you enjoyed my odd vehicles and share the curious idea on my web pages.
So far I have not noticed that the Rail Vespa and Propeller racers are Gn15! :shock: When I created them there wasn’t the concept like that.
I think Gn15 and GNine are nice and the most convenient scales for little cute narrow gauge free style models. I’d like to enjoy those a lot.

Regards,

Excellent website Shozo, I now realise that I've visited it some time ago. Now that I have the English link it is much easier than using a Web - translator which often gives strange/funny sentences.
I do like your humour in the modelling 8) .
You say that you are learning English, my response to that would be that your understanding of our language is far superior to many who were born here :wink: Gnice to see a Japanese view of our modelling mania :D
I'm sure we'll get more than a few :idea: :idea: :idea: from yourself :wink:
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Youkoso Shozo-san...

Where abouts in Japan are you? My wife's family come from the Shima-Hanto region- of course we've just come home from a visit... :(

Hi Shozo,
Great little model :!: Your website was an enjoyable browse.
I really like all the interesting rail cars, The sail yatch and the rail pal are my favourites.

Hi all,

The humor is the most important factor to enjoy a narrow gauge model railway world I think. Many narrow gauger, especially the modelers prefer a micro layout have an excellent humor and aesthetic sense.:o
All your web sights are very exiting and inspiring. Thank you for sharing your idea and works on the web.

Hi Michael,
Your MACTON Locomotive works and the loco Mercury is especially attractive. I have a plan to make a loco after Mercury in Gnine though it would be a hard work I think. :(

Hi Andy,
I live in Tokyo now but born in Osaka. So I'm familiar with Shima-Hanto region. Have you visited the Ise-Jingu? :o

BTW 
Last three days I have joined the 8th International Model Railroad Convention JAPAN held by the Japan Association of Model Railroaders (JAM) as a member of the Narrow gauge junction, the circle of narrow gauge modelers.
Of cause I exsibited my little Gnine garden railway model. It was relatively well received among female guests. :oops:
If you interested in JAM, see this page please.
http://www.jam.gr.jp/index_en.html
The current Chairman of JAM is Mr. Sum Furukawa well known as the American narrow gauge modeler and railway photographer.

Regards,
Regards, Shozo.K
