Cheers, Mark.

Thanks for the mental picture, John.

I look forward to the iPad renderings.  It sounds like it will be a lot of fun to create.  My friend, Neil, has a home built creeper that sounds similar to what you are looking at building.

Cheers, Mark.

Very nice, Mark. The overall layout is very dynamic and, again, I must applaud your planning efforts. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks, Craig.

It was one of those jobs that I knew I needed to do, but had been putting off.  Its nice to have it done.  Now I just have to decide which chunk to start on...

Cheers, Mark.

Hi guys.

Here is the left diorama mocked up.

The stream will come out of a pipe in a retaining wall opposite the Magnuson water works kitbash and cascade down the hill behind the block of shops, under the bridge and in front of the Boxing gym.  The wooden structure is FOS Hollender's boxing gym.  My intention is to put a slight angle in the center.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Hi guys.

Well I got the middle diorama mocked up in my break this morning.  This is the one that had a small piece to be attached.  This supports the track at the left end.  You can see how I stepped my cut to fit around the Palmolive factory.  this will need to have a piece routered out of the base to bring the track down to the level of the surrounding track.  I will have to refer to earlier photos to get placement of the structures finalized - but its pretty close.  The low relief structures against the backdrop my be revised.  The station and signal box is based on Burkes - a NZ station that I have always loved.  It should be a fun scratchbuild.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Hey Mark:

Looks like the scenery is started.

Sure has, Karl.

It might be a nice project to have one of these dioramas ready to work on for the upcoming modeling weekend next month.

Cheers, Mark.

Hi Mark,
Yes, the base of the columns are 18" x 12" (scale). then the ornament are doing with 1 x 3, 2 x12, 1x10, 2x6 ans 1 x2
All the columns are made at the same time, all pieces of ornament are cutting with the choppers to be assured to have the same lenght for all the columns. In this kind of work, the beauty came with the regularity and repetitiveness of the pattern.
Eric

Thanks for that, Eric.

I'd guessed pretty much right for all the sizes.  I recently started scratchbuilding my freight doors and discovered the ease of cutting multiple pieces for multiple doors at the same time.  I think what I enjoy most is the ease at which you can paint 2 different colours by simply painting the timber before assembly.

Cheers, Mark.

Hi guys.

Well - a bit more standing and trying to decide where to cut the rest of the back wall diorama to create two dioramas.  I tried to cut where made the most sense.  I came up with two different solutions so went and did some 1:1 scale fencing.  Before cooking dinner I made a decision, got out my various saws, and made some more mess.  After hoovering up the sawdust I took some photos of my new dioramas.  There was still a small piece left on the layout to cut out that will be attached to the middle diorama when I took these photos.  I have now done this and it is presently gluing to the rest of the middle diorama.

Photo 1 - shows an aerial shot of the three dioramas with a slight gap between them to show the cut lines.

Photo 2 - shows the left diorama.  This diorama sits next to the corner diorama.

Photo 3 - shows the middle diorama - without the small front addition added.

Photo 4 - shows the right diorama, as shown previously.

I'll try to find time to mock up the left and middle diorama tomorrow.  You can see why I needed to cut this back wall diorama up!  There is still a small piece left of it to the right of the right diorama.  I will probably create 2 more dioramas between here and the right end wall.  These new chunks will be so much easier to handle.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Really nice, Eric.

I take it you used strip-wood to make the ornate columns?

Cheers, Mark.
