About this blog

I create small to medium sized models and landscapes. They usually contain something vehicle related, those vehicles being tanks, aircraft and locomotives.

Side project

Hello   I've decided to work on a small side project, involving a 1:76 spitfire.   I plan to use this diorama as a chance to apply some new techniques, like applying static grass, and realistic weathering.   I'll hopefully update you with some pictures soon   -RJ

Planning new diorama

This one will be a bit smaller than my previous one. I have some spare rail left over from the other one, and I plan to make a small scene with a big focus on precision and detail.   I'll post an image soon of the plan   -RJ

Diorama completed

Hello again   I have finally finished the model. I am thinking of possibly adding a backdrop with some hills, mountains and birds to add some depth to it, but I'll see how it turns out to decide whether to keep it or not.    I will take some photos later in the day and add them to this post, or make a new one with just the photos.   -RJ

Diorama nearing completion

Diorama nearing completion

Hello again.   I have added a few finishing touches to the piece, such as the small pond, small rocks for balusters by the rails, and the people. I used some small sticks that I got from my garden and glued some bush material onto the sticks to create trees that I could stick into the landscape. I am currently waiting for the lake part to dry; I'm planning on letting it set overnight. I also added some varying heights of each bush line so that it looks more natural. I bent a large toot

Starting the landscape diorama

Starting the landscape diorama

I have started my diorama (finally) and achieved quite a bit today.   I started by gluing down the Styrofoam sheets and created the baseline for a slope. I then got some thin cardboard to create small slopes for the grass mats to mold to. Once the cardboard strips were glued down, I used Woodland Scenic's Ready Grass Vinyl Mat to glue down on top of the cardboard. After I'd finished with the mat, I then marked out where a small patch of water was going to be, and scraped away the grass

Here is my plan for the diorama. It's a pretty rough sketch, but I can see where I am going.

Here are a few photos of some stuff that I bought for the diorama. Grass mat has my hand for scale. Also, not in photos, but I bought some track for the Princess class.

This is the picture of my Princess class, "Elizabeth". Sorry the image quality isn't the best. Future photos will have a better resolution. You can also see my SMIT Frankrijk in the background. (It's not finished)

LMS Princess Class - 1/76 OO scale

I've recently obtained a Coronation class engine, and am planning to create a small diorama with it.   I plan to use a variety of techniques, like sculpting, using resin for a small lake, and flora placement.   I will post a picture of it soon.
