      Daniel, I agree-THE MAN IS AN ARTIST! Your photos of Rudy's fine layout(s) are artistic also.It would be great to take a "video tour" of Rudy's layout, an amazing work for sure. I could stand to see even more.

            Of course the merit is all Rudy's.
            I have just been lucky by being able to visit him.

            Yes, his modelling shows a very good sense for balance, but believe me: the pictures don't show the fineness of the weathering at all.
            Rudy is also a painter and now I regret I didn't took photos of his paintings and drawings!

            The very first impression when entering the trains room and seen the 1/35 layout (having poreviously seen the pictures here) is "It can't be all in that small space...!"
            There is nothing deeper than 500mm (20`') from the front. Not even the village scene.
            Another remarcable aspect is that there is that, also if there is no dramatic landscape, there is almost no flat surface. Typical Dutch, that love for subtle variations!

            Yes, the moderate presence of the trains contribute a lot at creating that balanced scenes. It is not about the trains nor about the village or the landscap. it is about the whole.

           And I agreeĀ± very inspiring!

      Daniel and Rudy,
      Very much enjoyed the pictures of Rudy's work. His work reminds me on the
      military miniature work rather than train work. He seems to set a stage
      very well with the trains passing through rather than dominating the scene.
      The weathering shows up well in your excellent pictures. You two are having
      too much fun. It will help me to get back to my layout which actually has
      become the home to several Russian tanks. Who knows why?

      Hi all:

      Well, it started a bit complicated. I woke up just too late to get the
      train so must call Rudy and tell him I would be coming 1/2 hour later. When
      changing trains at Amersfort station I missed it so called him again and
      told i woul;d be arriving 1/2 hour later.
      At Zwolle station the train stgoped and we heard there was a technical
      problem. It took 15minutes solve the p[roblem so instead of at 10,30 i
      arrived at 11,45 to Assen station. there was Rudy patienty waiting in his
      red cabrio.
      An incredible frendly man,living in the paradise of Drente.
      It as a great pleasure to meet him. I enjoyed his company and his
      modelling a lot.
      Aurprising his simple but effective 10 euros table saw.
      I'ver got lots of tips and enjoyed his extensive ingenuity.

      You will find some pictures in a new album under the name

      I will upload in a moment pictures of his 0n30 layout in another album.
