    This building was made with parts from POLA (windows, doors)but the "wall" was cut for every inch to put windows, doors. I maked all the structure, interiors, roof, etc. Kafee Nordwind is because my name is Nortadas and in Portuguese it means wind from the nord. Bye

    Fantastic Ricardo! That building fits in nicely with the rest of an excellent block of structures. I'll have an espresso please! :)

    That picture is old


    This location still exists in my layout but i have improvements. Soon as i get a camera i will post the new picture. A girl helping a drunk man walk out the bar ( green building ) , could be her grand father or something and next to the tower a scene of a prostitute being hitched by a man. I have sidewalk now in the green building and close to tower. Bye
  7. This is great modelling Ricardo...

    Any particular inspiration for the building or was it just that... building some structure to fit the corner?

    Great job... I would love to see the two mini-scenes you're talking about in your post...

    Just to fit the corner


    This building was built just to fit the corner and to be combine with the measured of the other two. Since i canot find a building in the market with that measures, i built one. Im finishing a little moutain with the rock molds from woodland scenics and painting them with the leopard tecnique that they talk about and i think its coming great. bye.

    Some day i will make a rustic german house to fit some where.

    Ricardo-- that is a great building and I especially like the rooflines. Fits in well . :thumb:

    Ricardo, this is an excellent city block. I love these complicated rooflines with attic windows added - an important detail for German city blocks. Great modeling! :) :) :)

    Are you modeling a German RR theme on your layout? Do you also run exclusively German trains, or are there Portuguese models (which would be a bit difficult because you have broad gauge in Portugal)?

    BTW: The idea of using the name "Kaffee Nordwind" is great! :thumb:

    Better to show

    Hello Ron

    Is better to show my trains to you than to tell you. I didn't put this picture in my site because its not finished and its old. Doesn't have the waterfall back next to the corner of the wall.

    I have more trains but i don't have a picture with more than that.

    Here goes:
