hi i would like to show you my 00gauge WWII layout.

this is not designed to be historically accurate more a what could have been.

nearly everything on this layout has been scratch built, i am most pleased with the cobble stones as these where all hand scribbled.

it is DCC and the points are simple piano wire for he controls.

it has now attended two local shows and was really well received.

it will shortly be featured in model rail magazine.

this layout is finished however i do keep adding bits.

so here are some photos.

Excellent modelling Jimmy, I especially like the tank with the 'landmine clearing' chain flails.
