      Have you noticed that as we get older we downsize our houses and upsize our modelling scales? Maybe something not quite right there! On the overseas modelling front, model railway suppliers are totally non-existent here in Cyprus, and if it weren't for the excellent mail order services of UK specialist suppliers I'd be completely sunk. I know of a few railway "modellers" here - though they're chiefly r-t-r American HO train-players - and as far as I am aware I am the sole narrow-gauger on the island.

I've kept up with Franck's Woolacombe seaside layout on the 7/8 Lounge Forums http://www.7-8ths.info/index.php. Some really wonderful detailing and weathering techniques to be found there that would apply in 7mm scale not just 7/8.
