It's been quite a while since I've made any progress on this module set but with another show coming up I got motivated to finish up some half finished scenes. As of today I've added the completed Green Max block of stores.
After the National Train Show in July there was a long break from doing any work on these modules. Now I am beginning to go back and finish those areas that were only partially done. First was the row of Green Max houses.
The Aoshima apartment building has been mostly completed and installed on the module. Also, I have used printed paper buildings attached to a styrene box to cover the Tortise switch machines in the upper left corner. With less than 6 weeks now before the National Train Show I am focusing on getting the things done that are needed to make it ready for display. Some of the areas still in red will just have stock buildings placed temporarily.

The past couple of weeks has been spent mostly on the Aoshima Apartments.

Progress has been made on the scratch built apartment building withing the block of buildings in the upper right hand corner. Also the bicycle parking area has been started, and a nice new building kit was received that will fill in some of the vacant area in the middle area of the modules.

This image is an overhead photo of the pair of modules with graphics superimposed over them to show how far along the various areas of the project are. This will also allow the reader to understand where each of the scenes are located on the modules. I will be adding updated drawings as things progress.
