    two years ago we bought a house and we had and still have a lot to reapir and renovate, so unfortunately there is not much time left for the modeling hobby. Of course, I take care to have time to play with my son (5 years old).
    We like to play with his wooden railway toy. For this I made a papercraft background scenery with horses and cows; my son likes it.

    It has been available at west japan railways:
    Unfortunately it is no longer available on the homepage at the moment,
    but on the web archive You can see that it has been there.

    To fit the size of the wooden rails I printed it a little bigger than the original scale and added some cardboard on the back to strengthen it.
    It is not a real big model, but perhaps a nice idea for some of You to play with their children.

    Kind regards
