I had a go with this kit for a 6"x4" diorama.  Its nice to see the kit built in full. Good job well done.

I like the way John includes various bits of graffiti In many of the Scalescenes kits.  It makes an authentic look easy to achieve as an option.

That is one filthy shunter - almost as bad as mine and mine is a non-runner! Very nice work so far on the bridge.

Darted out to the shed and hooked the lights up to take a few in situ shots, note its not bedded down yet so there are some huge gaps,,,,

shot of the nearly finished flyover, the third gap under the bridge on the right will be where a road will be,

looking down from the station, note the scenery carried on beyond the breakscene for photo's like these,

the overall scene showing the extended concrete thet will mask the point levers

a touch more work today, slowly slowly catchy monkey!

built a scalescenes low relief block of flats, i could only do a test build as my printer is out of ink and the print was bleached, but even as a test it is looking ok, im thinking of doubling the width and making it a cm or so deeper to give an illussion of something beyond the windows then gotta make the walls to seperate the line and the background,,,,

a look down the station side


some weathering and completion of the concrete support and grass topped,

That looks nice with the grass.  I like the tower block too, and I think you're right that it wants to be wider.

thankyou for the replies,,,,,   

im thinking the block of flats may be three times wider but same hieght, it's main purpouse there is to cover a join in the backscene boards and make it  less noticable,,,,,,,
