Hello All,

 

I had a spare piece of wood lying around, so I decided I would make a scenic cameo for my Andrew Barclay to go on my windowsill.

It is only 70 x 180mm so does it actually count as a model railway?  

Track is just a single piece of Peco code 100 setrack with the rails painted with Vallejo paints. I find them great because they dry very quickly. The grass will be gaugemaster static grass with some clumps of flowering shrubs.

All in all it's going to be a fun project build.:good:

Hmm what makes a model railway?  Well it's definitely a railway model at least :-)

 

I look forward to seeing it.

I'm sure this subject has been broached many times. Some would call this a diorama.

Thanks for following this build.

Yes diorama  if it's small and static. No idea whether adding power makes it a model railway or a layout though!

Jerry. 

Hi Jerry thanks for the interest.

This morning I have done some work on the few raised grassy areas of the diorama. This has been achieved by using a few layers of cardboard, then covered with strips of kitchen roll and PVA glue.

A little more progress on the diorama. The area where the grass will go have had a cost of dark earth paint. I have started work erecting a small stone wall which has been painted and weathered. 

I'm hoping to receive the ballast from Hattons tomorrow. All in all it coming together nicely.:good:

Hi everyone, today I have progressed a bit further with my diorama. 

I have completed laying the ballast, which will now need time to dry thoroughly. I went for the darker brown ballast which once dried will be weathered.

Looks like a tidy little diorama! Good work with rusting the track - that's always something I forget to do, but it makes such a difference. It should look great with the Andrew Barclay.

Thanks TechnicArrow for the comments, it certainly does make a difference when rusting the tracks. 

Thanks to all for pushing the likes. Tomorrow I will start adding some static grass to the diorama.
