Hardlia Yard, my entry


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.

 

I thought I would give the challenge a go.

 

The idea being a very small yard serving a coal merchant and a loading dock, detailed up.

 

So far I have a piece of foamboard cut to 8"x8" and I will put the backscene around to the 6" hight limit.

 

More soon.

I think that's the point with the these - the detail added can be very high.

Indeed, I hope to add detail to my little diorama.

 

Well, this is what I started with:

After much positioning of buildings etc I decided on this:

Nothing is stuck down in this photo so I'm going to stick it down now and do a bit more work.

 

More soon.

Hi Everyone.

 

I have done a bit more work, here is the latest progress:

As you can see, I have added a wills hut, coal staithes' again from wills and figures, dust bin, push bike etc.

 

I also started on the track which I have painted, it needs a bit of finishing.

 

The photos are a bit poor so will try and get better ones.

 

More soon.

Very nice. This really shows what a photo backscene can add.

 

Any ideas yet for the front part of the scene?

Thanks Mikkel.

 

I am thinking of a loading dock and another bit of track but this may change.

 

Here is a better photo of the diorama so far:

Hi Everyone.

 

I have done some more work on the diorama tonight, here is a photo of latest work:

 

post-9096-0-71185400-1508705858_thumb.jpg

 

As you can see I have added a loading dock which I had left over from a Metcalfe kit, and added some details to it such as figures, milk churns etc.

The crates need painting and the bit of track will be replaced with a better painted piece cut to size.

 

Still a bit to do yet.

 

More soon.

Hi Mikkel.

 

Thanks for your reply, a barrow crossing is a good idea so thanks for that.

 

I changed the platform top of the loading point as I felt it didn't look right and it looks better now, I will post a photo later.

 

More soon.

Thanks Booking Hall.

 

Hi Everyone,

 

I have painted the other track up and added it to the diorama, next job is to ballast the track and I'm going to add a barrow crossing too.

 

I will post a photo once I have the mentioned work.

 

More soon.

Hi Everyone,

 

It's been a hectic week so haven't really had time to do much with the diorama, I have started the ballasting though and I will hopefully finish this tomorrow and also the barrow crossing.

 

More soon.

Hi Everyone.

 

Well I have finally managed to get a bit more done to this today.

 

Here is a photo of it in it's current state:

 

 

 

As you can see I need to finish of the ballasting and add the borrow crossing and a few more little things and it should be done.

 

More soon.

 

Jerry.
