Dear,

Those are my first steps on this forum, I bult a mini lay-out on 0.90m3 (147cm x67cm). The thing is, I bult something who never exist, but i trayed to do it in a realistic way. A dubbeldeck turntabel on the end of a steamdepot. Allemost everything is selfmade. I was thinking by my self, a ship elevator exist so why not a dubbeldeck turntabel.




The location is somewhere in the Belgium ardens. The minilayout is named "Depot Val-Rikard" anno 1950.

Regards, Rik Martens

Very nice! Never heard of a double-deck turntable before but yours certainly looks believable and well-engineered. (And no doubt a real one existed somewhere, at some time. There always seems to be a prototype for anything imaginable.)

That's a neat-o freelance scene!  The two story shop somehow brought to mind the photo below.  Cheers, Dallas

Hi,

I didn't use a filter, I filmed it with a Pannasonic SD camera. There is also a second film, this time in HD. I fimed it with my wife's poced camera.
The nice thing is that you can put that smal camera in the middel of the layout.

The wal is made with faombaord, the bricks are presed brick by brick wit a old brush where I took al the hair out.

The liht above the dore is man made with a screw I plased in a dril. I shaped it by running the engine of the dril.
