After an hour of painting (I needed grass...) and cleaning my Western Town (link) I finally started with building the Roncalli circus! It’s going to be a fun ride, I hope you enjoy the first pictures!

Full album: click here

The circus train arrived, the clowns can’t wait to entertain:


This season we’ll have sushi on the menu!


The crew will have a lot of work the next coming days...


Welcome in our circus!


How can I help you?


Let’s rock!

Looking great :)

The train cars with the logo are perfect. So is the guy working on the truck.. and the pic of the woman in the "kasse" is gorgeous.

I really like the band klickys..

Looking forward to more.

I agree with tahra, looking great.

The man under the truck is a nice detail and isn't it typical of clowns - there's work to be one and all they can do is clown around!

And the band are very smart - are the figures customs?

But why is the man at the entrance hitting a rabbit on the head with a wand?!  (Joke!  :) )

Well, to be completely correct, there are "3 customs" if you count changing heads and hair ;-) :

The tuba player: the hair changed in comparison to the original klicky
The sax player: the head and hair changed in comparison to the original klicky
The keyboard player: the head and hair changed in comparison to the original klicky

The original band members are:
The trumpet player, the guitarist and the drummer.

Ah, I've never seen that before, only the other circus band.

Thanks tahra! It was a nice coincidence that they printed the stickers of Roncalli in blue, I’m glad I was able to order some from the parts service. Also, I bought this train second hand 3 years ago and one wagon had the Belgian train logo and the other one the German logo: uniformity level zero! At least they have the same logos now! I also removed the “(no) smoking” stickers, amazing that Playmobil (first of all made for children) at that time was open to smoking!

The guy working on the truck was first meant to be temporary, but playmofire and you convinced me to keep him in the final diorama!

I continued the work today but the “open space” is a mess now; full of accessories... maybe new pictures tomorrow...
