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.

Morning all.

Worked on a couple little projects over the weekend. Will share on my thread soon as they will be used on the tribute.

If Friday is my favorite day of the week, Monday is the opposite.

Doesn't sound like an easy day John - we lost our dad and then 18 months later our mom - had to clean out the only house they ever lived in. Don't wish that chore on anyone. Good luck.

Doug
