Mini Layouts

> main > layouts > mini layouts

In Japan, many modellers have very little space to build a layout. The solution: build a mini layout. In Japan mini layouts are built to a high standard of craftmanship. The confined space of a mini layout make them ideal for the funnier side of modelling. Below are four examples of Japanese mini layouts. The idea catches on in Europe and there is an annual competition in Paris, France at the 'Expometrique' modelling show. In Japan the annual 'JAM' convention, usually held in August is the place to these little works of art. Enjoy the layouts!

This little layout has its own carton.


A small mining layout, the electrics are housed in the base.


A very nice trolley layout, looks like a toy but it is not.
