My last Tomytec temple building arrived today. It took a whole 30 minutes to build, and I was able to lay out the buildings on the baseboard to get a reasonable appearance. I’m sure that this doesn’t match how a Japanese temple is arranged, and it’s a bit cramped, but a little amble around Google Maps shows them shoe-horned into all sorts of small urban areas, as well as the larger shrines in expansive grounds. So Rule 1 applies…..
I was also pleased to pick up a couple of temple wall kits from Plaza Japan, arriving in the same package, so I will be able to surround the temple appropriately. Next task will be to fit the foam board to raise ground levels in the temple grounds.
Martin has also been busy. A fiddle yard all laid and working, and the first structure on the scenic side of the layout.
And to close, a little inspiration…..
