Agree, this is some classic PM photography, with lessons that us amateurs can take away and apply.

Wonderful photo, the low angle makes the figures fit into the landscape perfectly.
Bet it also makes your belly fit into the cold snow neatly  8}. Und garantiert paßt sich der Schnee auch dem drinligenden Bauch ganz eiskalt an  :lol:.

Today the Ferrovie dello Balconia received some Playmobil supplies from Germany from an anonymous giver. Henk and Ben check the load. That looks fine.





B — “The items still look good. Can we make it a new small railway station?”
H — “We will succeed!”

A firm, determined tone in Henck's voice there!  Look forward to developments.

After careful consideration, Henk and Ben decided not to return the station to its original state. Searching for the old parts not only takes time, but they are also rare and expensive. Nevertheless, a station can be made of the material by "kitbashing". All usable parts are combined with remnants of other kits. Among other things, old CD boxes are used to make new windows in the waiting rooms. But there are also plans to provide lighting. First of all, we need a good foundation.

They are, indeed, rare and can be expensive, so I will watch your "kitbashing" with great interest.

I have some yelllowed platform bits which I think I might try spraying grey as bleaching hasn't worked.

Have you tried the hydrogen peroxide method on them Gordon? I've had good results on light grey with it,  but it is best in summer with stronger sunshine.

I've tried household bleach so far, but with no effect, Tim.  I'm just thinking of trying painting as an alternative, but not ruling out other chemical methods.

Of the items from Germany, a new platform has been constructed. Henk and Ben watch Joop carry out the final checks with theodolite. Everything is then ready to provide the platform with a waiting room.
