Covid-19 diary – Kuritu II – 8

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…..
