    buz rail workshops

    I hate making late remarks, but once laid the lowest row of tiles, the second and all the others have to be scaled of half tile (no matter if at left or at right) so that rain won't penetrate between

    For being an absolute beginner you're dealing very well with the material I'd just say that perhaps a sharper blade would be advisable, but judging from pictures is always difficult so you can even not consider this part of the answer

    Well, painting the plate in green/brownish tones would do a lot too and putting some vertical object as the ones you mentioned will do the rest. In a small layout in which building I took a little part, we simply got the effect putting a cow in a point where otherwise the "sightline" would have been badly interrupted .... and it worked

    Well, I'll just put something (a fence or similar) to take visitors' eyes away from the metal plate and look for a way to hide points' motors, for the rest it's all very nice

    What about masking them under a "hump" or something similar leaving the lever outside ?

    Well, just tell the wiewers that your railway is set in a zoo park or something similar
  7. I know it will sound quite strange, but in Trieste there still is a beach where men and women are divided by a wall .... and it seems that everyone is happy that way.
  8. Thanks for the explanation, I must confess that aviation isn't really my field, I thought that Wright's flyers were already obsolete after the '10s and I thought to Bleriot's one as he was the first to fly over the Channel. I agreee with you that "A magnificent man in his flying machine" was a really fun movie
  9. Now it looks completely different and much better, the final touch would be replacing the Wright brothers' flyer with a Bleriot's one
  10. There should be a layout inspired at the Guinness' railway in the site of the late Carl Arendt but I'd never imagined it was so big

    Well, you could always tell wiewers that bamboos are in foreground while hills are far away .... a matter of perspective

    Really no enough words in my vocabulary to express how much I like your layout, just a little question: when in exhibition, do you turn your lorry based engines once they get at the end of the track or send them back in reverse? and it you turn them how do you do it .... the "big hand from the sky" method?
