Jon models at 009 scale [4mm to an inch] and has a really good railaway in the stable. Me - I'm researching the history of our hamlet. I started out wanting to know who my house was built for as it is a Dower House, so she must have been an important woman in the 16th century, from there to the Manor House it was attached to and that was impossible without the rest of the hamlet. I've just unearthed the wills of 5 members of the original family which date back to 1603 - a few years after my house was built. Then, of course, you have to know about the social history of the time hence buying the Accomplisht Cook [thanks MMario] and introducing the rest of the hamlet to anything I find. Brilliant. 500 years of detective work.
