Having finished 'The Shed' entry to the Model Rail / other forum 2011 Challenge, I've started a third diorama...

This is supposed to represent the view from a carriage window, as it passes a small urban street (presumably over a level crossing...).

The buildings aren't anywhere near complete yet, but this should give you an idea of the finished scene.

Obviously a high class area.
Polished wood streets are not often seen here.

Should be a good entry - an original idea, good luck Stu.

Quite ingenious - especially as we normally model towards the train not from the train.  I really must go and lie down and think about this....:hmm

Thinking outside the box - or is that inside?  Clever whichever.  :thumbs

And from a Mk 1 carriage too - should be plenty of walls to dirty up but, like DD, I'm a bit concerned about that road surface ..........:roll:

A great idea Stu - it will make a very interesting little scene. :thumbs

Thanks, gents, for your kind comments. Please be assured, the polished wood will be covered with a suitably scruffy surface, more in keeping with the general quality of the area.

Got a bit more done last night :




...and just in case you were wondering, the back of the diorama will be scaled at 4mm, the front of the diorama is a mix of 7mm and 8mm and the window is scaled at 1:12...

...so the buildings have to be this shape...

Oooh !!  It's starting to look like the Shambles in York ...........or maybe Chester .......:roll::roll:

I like the way you've worked out the perspective but everything will have to be scratchbuilt (unless you can find some etchings where the operator was still suffering from the effects of the night before :lol::lol:)

The wood frame building is inspired by many of those in Lavenham, Suffolk, although the ones in Chester (where I worked for a few years) or the Shambles (which I've walked down) are very similar.

Yep, everything has to be scratch built, and working out some of the shapes is interesting...

As you probably know DD, there are a lot of very, very good entries in the Challenge, if any of mine are even mentioned I'll be pleased.

But thanks for the vote of confidence !

Not a criticism, Stu, more of a tip, but I found it easier and more accurate to use black strips on timbered buildings.
I use thin plasticard which gives that raised appearance.

DD, I did think about using card of some sort, but quite a few of the images seems to have the lath & plaster level with the edge of the wood. In the end I chose the quick & easy option, as this is a one-off diorama rather than a lyout, but you're right, on a 'proper' model I'd do it with a bit more care and thought.

From the front, it does look awful, but from an acute angle the roughness is somewhat subdued, so I think, in the overall scene, I should get away with it.

:lol:

No criticism meant, Stu.
Just that the simple things can be overlooked sometimes.

None taken, sometimes the obvious is not obvious...

Great idea......certainly an unorthodox perspective.....:thumbs
Chester sprung to mind as soon as i saw it...living only a few miles away i visit Chester quite often.......
Reminds me of East Gate.....

Some of those Chester buildings have a similar perspective to Stu's, Ste.

A bit more progress. Some poor bloke has got himself stuck in some grey cement, but he's too far away to worry about.
