Thanks Sol, that's where I first looked.  But I think I will go for insulfrog to avoid the wiring problems!  Or I may avoid the crossing altogether... I'm still playing around with the track plan

I had a break from the Hotel this evening and had a go at adapting some figures I had, to create this motley crew....Hopefully they are recognisable!

Thank you Brian.  I mentioned at the start of this thread that I would I have a theme running through the layout based on books I have read.  This is to give me a bit of a structure to the cameo scenes and pull everything together and to make it interesting to anyone who sees it..... not that I will be taking it out of the loft and I'm sure it is not exhibition standard.... maybe one day.

I loved Tintin books as a child and was adamant that the characters would feature on the layout.  I have hacked a number of little people to create the characters and am pleased with how they have come out, although they look a bit dodgy close up.

They will probably appear at he northern end of the layout, in the market scene, where Tintin spots the model of the ship Unicorn, and the Thompson Twins try to catch a pickpocket - so more modelling opportunities.  I have one novel featured so far (Virgin and the Gypsy), and the basis of a second, so it is working out.

The buildings, from the last photo, will possibly appear on the backscene near the station - I will see if it works.

I am not a very methodical modeller, which is strange because my day job requires me to be very methodical - maybe it is my escape.  So I tend to jump around based on my interests and ideas.  I am very envious of your approach to modelling and the structure and speed of your work - it puts my efforts to shame.

I shall now return to the hotel to finish off the south east corner...….

Regards

Michael

I can see who all the characters are now Michael  all you need is snowy the dog perhaps you can hack a sheep around to make him.
Thats what building a layout is all about adding whatever you want not what others may dictate to you.

Only the other day i was thinking whether or not to have a church somewhere on the layout and while thinking i thought i could say to people i know do you want a gravestone in my churchyard LOL  i don't know how many would take up the offer.

I am relative quick at doing things i think thats because i still work and really i tend to give working on the layout  a work ethic by planning the jobs and cracking on with them and not allowing myself to be distracted to much.

Brian

Great idea about the tombstones Brian!  You could get them sponsored, which extra cost for a statue!

Nice work on both the Tintin crew and the orangery Michael! 
I recognised them straight away. Favourites of mine from my childhood...  er... um... and not childhood too!

Thank you Marty.  My eldest brother worked in a bookshop when I was young - my "pocket money" was a Tintin book, every so often - I must have read them all a hundred times, or more.  You can't buy models at 4mm scale, so I had to have a go at making them myself.  I can probably do the paintwork better - it's actually my first effort at painting little people - I've only ever used a few pre-painted ones before.  But I hope they at least conjure the image of the Herge cartoons.  They were always going to have to feature somewhere.  My favourites were the two-parters - Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon, and The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure.  I opted for the latter for the scene and have attempted a model of the model of the Unicorn.....





Still a fan!

Michael

Wonderful modelling here in every respect and the orangery is superb.


(How did I find out about this?   "I heard it on the Grapevine"!!!).  :lol:

Hahaha, thank you Ken, very kind.  I'm no expert and learn more from my failures than my successes, but I'm glad you like it.

Regards

Work begins on the hotel roof.  Linka roofing can be a bit thick when it is cast, so I have used Wills tiles.   






I wanted a fancy ridge tile, but couldn't find any, so carved a bit of the tiling to create this....
