Micro-layout/diorama - use a picture frame?


Recommended Posts

We've had layouts using box-files and various other storage objects on here, but has anyone done anything with a picture frame?

 

The reason I ask? Well sat under my desk is a standard ikea picture frame with a wooden border and a hardboard back (700x500mm) after the glass broke. It seemed a shame to throw it out - it might be usefull etcetc but now its getting irritating. I reckon i can get a reasonable photo-diorama in that space but am not sure whether it worthwhile. Anyone else gone down this route or am I just making a rod for my own back and should get back to sensible sized things?

But if you wanted to actually hang it on a wall, a length of N (or 009) track with a high retaining wall or factory block behind would be barely 2" deep.....

Hmm, hadn't thought literally to make a framed layout, just to use the constraints of a given board size, however that might prove interesting but I'm not busting the box frames just to give it a go.

 

Ta for the Uckfield link btw - most interesting.
