There will also be a digital slideshow showing over 300 photos and video clips of the construction of the diorama. And back by popular demand, are the reverend ladies! A huge word of thanks to the many kind folk in this group who have commented on my updates during the
  9. Final detailing on Capecastle - more forestry work and telegraph poles! A few final final small things to do then just the backscene to add. Have enjoyed this, and have learnt a lot! Looking forward to showing the diorama at Whitehead on November 9th.
