La Cour Bertain

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Un grand bravo. Du grand art. Tout est parfaitement maîtrisé : la voie, la composition, les batiments, la patine, le matériel roulant, ...

Marc,

Too bad the public didn't like your layout..... This layout was an entry for the mini layout competition in Mechelen. Only the 14th place...

Excellent Build!

A very nice overall shot here:

Don't take it badly.
Coming 14th doesn't necessarily mean the public didn't like it.
They probably did like it. Its just that lots of them liked a different one more.

Public voting can be random. Often public voting is more about how well they got "entertained" rather than the best modelled layout.

I have got first place in the public vote at a number of shows now, and often I don't have the best modelled layout - but I do have features that entertain them more than the others :wink:

The subdued colours of the layout are great. Very well done.

I was interested in the track arrangement at the back of this layout, thinking that there could be a connecting loop. I found a track plan on a French site.

There's also some video of it running at Modelspoor Expo 2012 - starting at minute 10:58

I'd leave the sound off, as it's typical of most train shows - mostly screaming kids in the background.

I'm curious about the runaround track, as with two entry points to the layout, it doesn't really seem to be needed. Also - all three dead-end sidings are facing the same way.
