There are no subtitles and I don't speak Japanese, but I've just learnt so much from watching this video! The first half shows how to build, modify, paint and weather a commercial plastic kit of an Enoden 100 series railcar. The second half (from 25:00 on) then shows how to build a diorama/micro layout for it to run on based on a real location.

 

Grab a beverage of your choice, sit back and enjoy...

Funnily enough I've been thinking about something similar following a trip to Japan last month, got some lovely wee Sankei N gauge laser cut card buildings which are astonishingly finely detailed (in a different league to Metcalfes offerings in either OO or N. They take their model railways very seriously over there!

I have that kit sitting in my cupboard, waiting to get built on a Bachmann mechanism then fitted with DCC and lights.

Just for something different on Victoria Street.

So far I've only been tempted by this kit http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10221556 via the internet, but I'm off to Japan for a holiday at Easter so we'll see what I come back with!

What superb model-making and what a lovely programme, even though I don't understand a word of Japanese. I'm on the look out for some of that Tamiya 'panel line marker' and what are those marker pen paints he uses ?

I couldn't understand a word but that was truly inspiring. It makes me want to get on and work on my "view from the end" SLT.

The gentleman with the glasses would appear to be the Japanese equivalent of Bob Symes. He even has that same delicate burr in his voice.

Thanks so much for sharing that one.

Hi Sparks

Has you seen some of his other videos ? .There's a four part one where he has done a box layout in a old tv.He has used different scales to give a great perspective and depth to quite a small space.I found on youtube after searching further,you may have seen them but if anyone hasn't,  here are the links

Hi

Ive looked to,the panel line markers seem only to be available from japan and us,though could be wrong.Must be ink like as ive used ink on panel lines before.The pens appear to be these ,

 

"Uni Posca markers use water-based pigment ink to produce poster-like vibrant colours. Writes on metal, glass, plastic, stone, etc. - virtually any surface. The ink will not bleed through paper, unlike alcohol-based markers. Opaque colour - allow to dry after application and new ink will completely cover the previous colour."

 

You can buy single pens as well as various sets,which are expensive.Search for Posca on ebay or amazon.Art shops may sell them,these where only places ive looked up quickly,because i very curious aswell.
