In the past I have to do my built diorama’s away. Nothing bad about that, but my wife likes my diorama modelling. Yes, I’m a lucky guy with that.
But now I had to find another way for creating diorama’s that could be placed in the living room.
On a Facebook group I saw someone who exhibited his Petite Property models in a showcase. In the latest numbers of the BRM magazine there is an article about building a layout in a Billy shelf.
My wife liked that idea. So, my next IKEA challenge will be to build a diorama on a Billy shelf. This diorama will be dedicated to her. The diorama will be a farm scene with Hereford cows and other animals. I love those Pendon farm side scenes, but I have to do something different here.
But my knowledge about this subject is limited. So, I need your advice.
I will start with the left part: a farm situated on a country lane between two places.
The cars on the picture I will not used. In front af the farm there will be a Rover P4 75, another white metal kit from the John Day range. The other cars are a Jowell Bradford van on the road and a Austin A70 pick up for a milk delivery scene.
The vegetable garden will become a garden with an apple tree, flowers and some vegetables.
The farm will be card build using the farm from Scalescenes in aged brown brick.
First of all, can anyone give me some advice about modelling an early 1950’s country lane?
And of course, all information about this subject is welcome.
