Hello sirs,

I am a newbie modeller just passed my 3 lovely years.

QUOTE Neil said :For those who don't know Abd does some excellent modelling of Turkish places, in particular Ephesus is absolutely brilliant

Thanks mr.Neil I choose the modelling place selcuk train station was built in beginning of 1900 very famous with stone buildings

Selcuk a small train station town next to Ephesus well known antic city of the B.C

I planned design in one side exactly9meters x 4 meters layout with DC system most probably using with TILLIG rails.
In the final I manage with ECOS commander both system.

In this plan I try to do exactly 1/87 copy of the station and the environment with part of antic city ephesus and a mountain village very famaous with old houses in the years of 1960's

I was in the region and took abot 500 pictures for use
during modelling.

For Turkey This will be the first strong modeltrain project.

In the final I Hope rivet counters will satisfy during stone counting of the houses.

Here down some main pictures from works
regards

selcuk train station


antic city Ephesus











stone warehouse





The last one is test mini layout for exercise before ballasting of the rails in the project which is my nightmare.

A lot of newbie's arriving to MRF lately


Abd is my mentor and one of the leading figures in Turkish modelrailroading. A 250 sq meter layout and a dedicated Maerklinist.
However this new project of his is all 2 rail and will be one of its kind when completed.Hopefully to be seen by the public when completed in Dortmund.

QUOTE there's a few drain covers on SL that lack a little detail !

I was wondering when we'd get a comment like that


When they're done are you going to put some tethered binoculars round the layout so visitors can examine them in detail ?
