    Some years ago I hand built quite a number of OO Tudor buildings and a few others that have been sitting around doing nothing. Due to my commitment to care for a friend I seem to have little time to 'indulge' in my aim to build a new exhibition layout. I have been quite amazed by the quality of some of the smaller layouts being built and thought that this may give me an opportunity to create a small village serviced by a cute little narrow gauge railway and thereby utilising some of these models. The space I am looking at is 1200 x 600mm (4' x 2') I am sure that it could be an interesting little project.

    Thank you Gormo, I have a few ideas perhaps similar to the fishing villages in Cornwall with buildings going up the hill but make this village inland.

    Congratulations Robyn on making Picture of the Week :tophat::cheers::thumbup:, those Tudor houses are wonderful... full of charm and character... AND what is really nice is they are something a little different. Looking forward to seeing more buildings come on stream and a layout all in the fullness of time. :tophat::tophat:

    Thank you for all your wonderful comments and picture of the week, my goodness that is a surprise. I will do some more work on the other buildings I have and post them as this little project develops.
