    That just look s simply superb. Putting my effort (slowed down a little due to good weather - other projects to do) completely to shame. I'll be too ashamed of the finished result to post!:eek:

    Boy, if "patience is a virtue", than this is a very virtuous layout. The detail and accuracy is outstanding and the effort put into it shows.

    The underground sections are finished, and now the top is going back on. Here is the front view so far ....

    ... and here is the back view. You can see I have added another storage track to the outer loop, as I now have 3x new type trams and 2x old type.

    Fantastic. I am enjoying these progress shots. Keep 'em coming. Can't wait to see the bustling Japanese city over the top with busy subway operating beneath.

    Doug, I thought of your layout when I was in Melbourne for a lightning one-day visit last week. Walking through Flagstaff and Melbourne Central underground stations reminded me of your project. (We don't have an underground subway system in Perth
    - yet - one is under construction now)

    Lookin' good Doug.

    "Excuse me sir, could you direct me to the subway entrance?"

    Well the layout is NEARLY finished, and early tomorrow morning is the two day trek to Adelaide.

    I will return to the list with more pictures after the 20-21 June.

    Here is the last photo of Setagaya I will take before the exhibition ...

    Wow! That looks really great Doug!

    Wish I had the time to fly over to Adelaide and visit the Show.

    All the best with the travels and the exhibition.

    What the clown thinks.

    Outstanding! I love those tall buildings. It looks like a real place. Did you have a prototype or did you make it up?

    All you need now is one of those inflatable Godzilla dolls to stand in the back. :D

    I can't wait to see some close-ups of the down town area.
