Nasu-Siobara Milk Farm' 6.5mm HO Narrow Interior Layout : Yoshiaki Nishimura Finished product model 1:87
Yoshiaki Nishimura Pre-painted 1/87 Scale (HO Narrow 6.5mm, HOn2)
Work size (when horizontal): approx. 63cm wide x 25cm deep x 15cm high
Wooden stand for vertical display: approx. 40cm (W) x 15cm (D) x 74cm (H) (the roof of the car protrudes 18cm from the base of the stand)
Gauge (width between tracks): 6.5mm (cannot be displayed vertically except for the carriage supplied)
Note: The base of the layout is made from ship's deck material, so there will be some warping throughout.
A protective box (made of wood) is included for storing and transporting the artwork.
The car in the photo (converted from Busch's "Feldbahn". Powered. Weathered) is included.
The included car can be displayed vertically by magnetic force. It cannot be driven vertically. It can be driven by lowering it from the stand and making it horizontal. It may be difficult to run with the freight car pulled.
You can put 3 AA batteries in the battery box in the corner of the work, and control the running and the LED lighting of the building by operating the switch on the box.
Information edit: Sakatsu Gallery
This layout was built using the FELDBAHN set from Busch.
The power cars included in this set are equipped with magnets in their bellies, which are attracted to the steel plate under the track to prevent derailment and provide torque.
This feature has been used to create a layout that allows the car to be displayed and appreciated like an interior, even when it is hung on a wall, without it falling.
Unfortunately, there are some parts of the track that are difficult to drive in the vertical position, but in the normal horizontal position, the track can be driven on the steep gradients along the way without difficulty.
A day on the farm begins first thing in the morning with the milking of the cows. The cows are milked by machine in the barn and the milk is collected in stainless steel milk cans. We have created a scene of this in HO Narrow.
The main building is brick and the cowshed is scratchbuilt from a Hokkaido gambrel roof, assuming that the owner emigrated from Hokkaido in the Taisho era. The present owner appears to be a great car enthusiast.
The cows have been repainted to give them a more authentic pattern. The silage, made from rolled grass by machine, is placed to add to the farm feel.
