    That just look s simply superb. Putting my effort (slowed down a little due to good weather - other projects to do) completely to shame. I'll be too ashamed of the finished result to post!:eek:

    Boy, if "patience is a virtue", than this is a very virtuous layout. The detail and accuracy is outstanding and the effort put into it shows.

    ... and here is the back view. You can see I have added another storage track to the outer loop, as I now have 3x new type trams and 2x old type.

    Fantastic. I am enjoying these progress shots. Keep 'em coming. Can't wait to see the bustling Japanese city over the top with busy subway operating beneath.

    Doug, I thought of your layout when I was in Melbourne for a lightning one-day visit last week. Walking through Flagstaff and Melbourne Central underground stations reminded me of your project. (We don't have an underground subway system in Perth
    - yet - one is under construction now)

    Well the layout is NEARLY finished, and early tomorrow morning is the two day trek to Adelaide.

    I will return to the list with more pictures after the 20-21 June.

    Here is the last photo of Setagaya I will take before the exhibition ...

    Wow! That looks really great Doug!

    Wish I had the time to fly over to Adelaide and visit the Show.

    All the best with the travels and the exhibition.

    What the clown thinks.

    Outstanding! I love those tall buildings. It looks like a real place. Did you have a prototype or did you make it up?

    All you need now is one of those inflatable Godzilla dolls to stand in the back. :D

    I can't wait to see some close-ups of the down town area.
