Lakeland Diorama
« on: May 19, 2019, 08:44:03 PM »
I spent a week at my mum's helping with various tasks including the installation of a new boiler.   I brought quite a few things home with me, including this little diorama I made many years ago, with the idea of a vaguely "lakeland" scene.  That viaduct needs some weathering, but I think the overall scene is quite engaging - judge for yourself:

Smashing. I really like little dioramas and this one works well.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks guys,

The backdrop is a photo from a calendar as I recall, so it will be of a particular place, but I can't remember where!    It probably wouldn't have had a railway though.

Thanks! As, you say, could be anywhere!

Why not weather the bridge and throw some Woodland Scenics stuff over the lichen, and show us the results?  :thumbsup:
