Takumi Diorama Craft House, painted and finished, 1/80 size

Measurements: W:190mm, D:105mm, H:100mm
Base Kit: "Choshi Dentetsu Sotokawa Station Building" by Press Eisenbahn (released around 1986, now out of print)
Note: 5 CRD-controlled LEDs (with electric lamp shades) are already illuminated. Just apply 3-15V DC to the lead wires from the bottom of the model and enjoy the night view easily.
The soldered parts of the wiring are insulated with heat-shrinkable tubes to prevent shorts, and the lead wires are designed for easy wiring. The lead wires are also designed for easy wiring, making them easy to integrate into the layout.
The station names are attached to the base board using double-sided tape with low adhesive strength so that they can be used as free stations.
The scale is 16, 1/80, but it can also be used for 1/87 because of its relatively small form and size, which is common in small and medium-sized local private railways. It is also available in narrow gauge.

Information edit: Sakatsu Gallery

Based on a kit released some 26 years ago, this work has been completed with a generous application of today's technology and materials.

Sotokawa station is an immensely popular local railway station. This is a reproduction of a station building from the 1940s, before the windows were sash windows.
The tin roof damaged by the sea breeze, the used ticket gates and benches, the sink on the platform side and the red vending machine on the other side... The small station building speaks eloquently of the world that surrounds the work.

The base kit, unfortunately, only has metal parts that can be used satisfactorily over time.
Therefore, only the window frames with unique dimensions were used from a kit, and the window sills were replaced with laser cut ones. The exterior walls are almost self-made, with wooden materials covering the whole surface.
The windows in the station building, which can be seen only by looking into the building, have been made from photographs and other sources, especially for the ticket office and the baggage handling counter.
The name of the station on the front wall has been reproduced in a unique font.

The best expressions are chosen from a wide range of genres, such as the use of hairspray techniques to create the look of rusted tin with floating paint.
Please pay attention not only to the skills of the models, but also to the colour sense of the Takumi Diorama Craft House, which has been honed through printmaking and painting.
