Winter Scenes.
« on: November 22, 2011, 04:59:23 PM »
Just a thought,
What with the winter and Xmas (allegedly) rapidly approaching I was wondering if any one has done a winter scene with snow etc.
Have been asked by SWMBO that if I am going to continue using the dining room table for building stuff, could I use a bit of spare >:( track and do a little winter diorama.
Thinking along the idea of the earlier 6"x4" project thread to do one.
Any idea's? Was thinking maximum budget of 10.00 excluding odds and sods that I will not be using elsewhere- maybe even one of the Del Prado static loco's.

Modelling stupid small scale using T gauge track and IDl induction track. Still have  N gauge but not the space( Japanese Trams) Excuse spelling errors please, posting on mobile phone

I have a 12" circular snow scene layout I did a couple of years back. Was a fun little hack if a little too small to work well.

There are plenty of snow powders/sprays including some you can vacuum back off later.

If you want to go for maximum snow on a still diorama, you could do a train running with a snowplough clearing the line. Could give you some nice dynamic bits with the waves of snow coming from the front etc.

Very interesting about being able to vacuum them off again.  I might look into this myself.  Any idea on the manufacturer?

That looks great - hard to believe you can just vacuum off and re-use. I think I'll have to get another vacuum cleaner tho' because I've got a Kirby and that will pull the Sundeala off the frame! :o

Thanks for the pics John(Swisstrains)
Will have to think think about that Noch snow. Don't think I will use the portable hoover tho', tis great for most jobs but a Dyson on a train board - no way.
