INTRODUCTION
Research for & building of, scale model buildings of the Friedrichstrasse area of Berlin
Scenic Modelling
The original research was carried out some years ago and was used in the design of the L&DMRC HO scale layout Fredrichstrasse
In this N scale the first buildings to be constructed will be 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 Japanese N scale (1:150 rather than 1:160 the Continental scale) is related to the choice of model tramcars available at a reasonable cost. A fine range of  Kato and other Japanese manufacturers models of German modern and old outline trams, are available .
