Backdrop and new scenery

As planned I removed the paper backdrop, it was nice, but too sensible to humidity and temperature. Lesson learned, for the opposite wall expansion I will use wooden backdrop. To fix the problem on this portion of layout I painted the wall, then I placed new photographs.

In the meanwhile I built the aggregates industry structure, just to test the proportions and functionality with working trains.

Tyrrell P34 Japan GP 1976

The Tyrrell is complete, almost out of the box with her awful wheels, better to start looking for a replacement ...

GHQ Peterbilt 359

A lovely little kit, painted with some spare "Zero Paint Ford GT blue".
The trailer is resin casted, and the container is a photo-layered plasticard box.

... and yes, the K-line container is upside down :) but I was too lazy to take another shot ...

Tyrrell P34 Japan GP 1976

Here is a model commissioned by a friend of mine, he's a modeller too, but he's very busy building his F16s....

This car broke my modelling agenda, but the other projects will wait for a bit.

The danger in this case is that I could like to build historic F1 cars...

On the bench, and what's next.

Here is the the layout today, on the bench there is a Peterbilt 395 with a 40' trailer carrying a Zim reefer container.

The last picture is the expansion on the short leg of the "L" shelf.
