11th International Model Railroad Convention Report (N-Gauge Diorama Display Pt.2)
Hey there everyone, this is Tominon.
Today we have more of the 11th International Model Railroad Convention Report.

They put the visitor count up on the JAM website, and the total was a whopping 38,850 people over 3 days! That's 4000 more than last year!
Hopefully that means the number of train model fans is increasing every year!

Now then, in this entry we'll be going over Tecchan Club's display.
Their focus was the Joetsu Line Minakami Station and surrounding areas.

A brilliant scene of mountain, bridge, and tunnel.
Look familiar?


That's right, it was the layout used for this very convention!
It was on flyers and posters, but I only have the ticket on me so here's a picture of it.
Tecchan Club was actually picked for last year's convention too!

Intense canoe scene. They're going to crash!
If you're wondering how they got such amazing water...
First, they painted the river base with acryl gouache colors, then added gloss medium to make it shiny, and finally gave it volume with shell medium.

This is also made from scratch. They modelled this after a real hotel they saw at Suwakyou. Truly impressive!
The middle section is a parking lot with cars lined up inside.

It's a fantastic sight from below.
The creator even told me about the time he actually went down this river.

A series 115 train is running through this scenery. Great background.

The Minakami Station module. Would you believe that they made all these buildings out of paper? It sure surprised me!
Lights across this display made it even prettier.
If you look down on this station from Google Maps you'll see that the building rooftops are mostly red.
But since the original models were other colors, he actally repainted them red.

Even the overpass is handmade from plastic sheets.
I'd think it was already made if I wasn't told otherwise.

The Express Train "Toki" and Series 115 are travelling down these tracks.

The turning of this truck is really realistic, and the placement of the signs is great too.


I loved how the insides of the tunnels were glowing orange, like the real thing.
The lights just outside of them light up too.

People working in fields. Great peaceul scene.

I was told they used an old Tomytec turntable.

Crime scene?


There was a hole in the brown panel...

...and you could watch trains come your way!

That's all I have for the Tecchan Club.
Their displays were awesome, and time just flew by as I was looking at all the little details they worked into them.


That's it for this time. Just a bit more!

See you next time!
