INTRODUCTION
Research for & building of, scale model buildings of the Friedrichstrasse area of Berlin
Scenic Modelling
The first buildings to be constructed are the south side entrances of the station which are to follow fairly closely the prototype. Other buildings -will be impressions rather than slavishly following a particular prototype. The header photo is of the detail of the windows & clock above one of the entrance “tunnels” (Dec 2015)
Similar buildings, in a less dilapidated state will also form the basis for the modern Berlin Undivided which shows the area in modern times.
The possibility of using N scale is related to the choice of tramcars. A fine range of relatively low cost Kato and other Japanese manufacturers models of German modern and old outline trams, are available .
