This is the expansion of a small diorame where another factory has been added and a chimney demolished !

Cheers.

Fantastic work Allan.
May I ask how many years you have been modelling?

You've done an absolutely bang-up job with this. Any chance of a color picture?

Allan, do you mind me asking about the windows, are they bought or scratched, you don't say but I guess the model is 4mm scale.

Hi Phil.

The windows are Scalelink brass etched LMS windows set in a three window outer frame and the model was built at 7mm to the foot.

In answer to Dave.

I've been modelling now for about half a century and walk with a stoop and two sticks !

Also I would like thank everyone for the kind and encouraging comments and yes, I do intend to extend the diorama but it will be built as a seperate unit that will butt up to the same profile as the original. So, MORE dereliction !

BTW. When all is finished, and should anybody be interested, one or both dioramas will be up for sale at a most reasonable price - just PM me for details.

I shall also try and dig out a colour pic.

Thank you.

Allan.

That makes all the difference. The whole thing looks superb.

I thought a word or two on weathering and gunging up things in particular might be apprpriate here where Talcum Powder is king !

Forget about babies bottoms, it's far more effective when heaped on, around, up and down derelict factories by just piling it on anywhere and everywhere then drenching it in Colron Wood Dye - Victorian Pine - and stipple, brush and drag it with an old half inch paint brush until you end up with a right ol' mess then set it solid with a drenching of watered down PVA and forget about it !

Also, rotten wood ( read that as our garden shed ) can be split up, powdered, hammered to all good effect and even really rotten chipboard ( again, our garden shed ) shredded and heaped in piles. I've even used an old, well rusted coach bolt and the plastic feet off an old portable work bench, in fact, anything that looks rubbish, could be rubbish, is rubbish was used - even an empty superglue bottle and a buggered up Peco buffer stop !

Hope that might be of use.

Allan

Absolutely brilliant, I will try some of your methods on my own modelling especially the grunge.

Congrats on picture of the week, definitely well earned!


Pete.

That color photo makes it look even more real... Truly excellent. Lovely weathering tips too. And speaking of weathering, have you ever used soot as a pigment or a weathering powder? According to an old modelling book of mine, it's quite good for it.
