Maigret Night at the Crossroads

An illustration from the Dominic Hyman web page - used without permission.

Last night Sue and I were searching through the 'Black Box' for something to watch and came across a recording from much earlier this year. Maigret - Night at the Crossroads with Rowan Atkinson as Maigret. We both enjoyed the performance but for me it was the authentic setting and superb props that were the highlight for me.

With sketch book in hand, I made many quick pencil sketches of the garage and forecourt. Then this morning while searching Maigret and Night at the Crossroads on the internet I came across this link which is just full of detailed set layouts and props. I have saved the link and expect it to be the basis of many future modelling projects.

I would expect the plans and illustrations to be of use to many period modellers and if you have a high quality printer, the ready made road signs and advertising plaques could prove a boon.

Check out the other projects here - I particularly like the detailed elevations.
