Ah, 1:16 then - that's going to save me a lot of anguish! An ideal size for Grecons and Barton Tudor furniture, though!


I thought that too. I spent a happy hour looking into my house reviewing how much Barton Tudor I have and how many gaps would be made. It'll have to wait though, when I removed the
carpets I found evidence of the dreaded worm so it's been thoroughly sprayed, wrapped in plastic and put into the garage for now.

Stop day dreaming Brooksey, the rooms are barely 6 1/2 inches in height!

Great to see layout.

Apart from having six rooms, there are a number of internal differences between this house and the Tri-ang No 55 Mayflower. Possibly the most noticeable ones are that the No 55 does NOT have stairs and its front door opens into a different room (the central one).

I wish I did have room for a Mayflower, either a 54 or 55 (or one of these look-alikes!). I keep thinking that any one of them would make a lovely lodge for Ketterley, and the home of Arthur Baynes, the gardener and his wife Pauline, the cook - but then it occurs to me: are they 1:12 rooms or smaller? Arthur is just over 6" tall, so needs rooms with a minimum ceiling height of 7". I can stop daydreaming if I know that they're too small!

It is really lovely. I know back openers can be hard to work with, but some are so worth setting up and just leaving alone once 'dressed' if space is scarce.

Yes, there are side windows in each outside room except for the top right one where the roof level comes down too low. I'm imagining it as an old farmhouse, along the lines of the Georgian one at Beamish with kitchen, store room and best room downstairs and two bedrooms and linen room upstairs.

Very nice layout with turned steps, coomed ceiling and lovely large windows downstairs. Are those side windows on both sides?

Simply fab, I would love one of these (and like you, I have absolutely no more space)
