Beautiful build Barry, though I had to ask if you had any photos of the prototype? Also what are those two soldiers in the foreground doing with those shells? They look 75mm by scale and obviously don't belong to the railway gun. Just wondering....

Thanks for comments .I have lots of photos why do you ask ?
Yes the shells are wrong but the problem with 1 72 scale is there is a shortage of good correct items to use .

Magnificent build! I always admire how to create realistic work on railways, more and more... Hope this photo sharing can be a useful reference for me. My only suggestions are you may put more variety of colors on ballast and grass, giving them more lifelike effect. Overall, they're great!



Kind regards
