First of all, thank you for the interest shown in my modelling and the warm welcome to the forum.
(It seems a very nice place!)

I hope the pictures here will be of interest and I welcome questions of the 'how did you do that' variety.

I may off missed the answer or you saying but forgive me if i have. Do you place these around your layout or do you just build these and then just sit on a shelf?

They are brilliant mate. The detail is amazing, thanks.

Phill

Thank you Phill.

They are made from bits that I collected over the years with a view to making a huge permanent exhibition layout.
That wasn't to be but folk have kindly asked me to make dioramas for them which I do - of course I can't charge for my time.

Who knows, one day the layout might materialise.

Just one thing when posting a series of pictures could you hit the Return key after each picture. There will then be space between each photograph making them easier and clearer to view as individual photographs.

Very nice looking dioramas! I would like to know how you did those fences, they look perfect. :pathead
It is very hard to get the vertical boards spaced correctly and actually vertical, so, how did you do it?

Superb workmanship and thanks for taking the time to share the pics with us.

I like your sense of humour with puns everywhere in the signage. :Happy.

My curiosity is aroused by the slate roof to the brick house. I haven't scratch-built as yet but am having some difficulty making ready-to-plonk buildings look the part. Slate roofing seems hard to find or represent and when that is done I then need to add cement wash, lichen and guano to it!

Any tips?

Robert: Done.

Thanks, Wayne:
I always reinforce fences with a backing strip at ground level which is usually covered by weeds/grass as if neglected.
On the slope I pushed the limits of uprightedness!
Most fences will be from packets (not enough time to make them individually) but I try to put my own stamp on them.
For example, the loading bay fencing is sprayed silver and looks (to me) like solid metal fencing.

Rick:
I prefer Wills Sheets for slates.
Deeply defined.
I usually spray with grey acrylic and then pick out a few slates for treatment.
Looking again at the pictures, they are not the best rooves I've ever produced. Photographs can be very cruel!

Peter

Thanks for showing us some of your work, have you got a layout that all of these fit onto, or is that work in progress ?

No layout (at the moment).
Explained on my website.

More content added to the website.
It's beginning to look like an Attic Sale.
One day I'll spend some time on it and get it sorted.

Unfortunately Bosworth not Botham, although I was at Notts in the 70's and had the honour of sinking a few pints with the great man!

So unless you were an avid Notts fan back then or follow Basford Mill Criket Club now I am probably not your all time hero with the willow but thanks for asking, it's not often you get asked if your a super hero!:thumbs

Ok, Peter, a request please for us mere modelling mortals.
When you start a new diorama, can you take photos as you go & create a new thread & describe the building step by step?
