Progress is the right word Stu, that's coming along nicely and quite a novel idea for me.

Great stuff. The track and ballast in the foreground certainly holds the whole thing together.

Thank you chaps, your feedback & encouragement are much appreciated.

This whole excercise is a new concept for me too, and it's certainly being built to be viewed from one direction only.

Brilliant idea Stu
Certainly a different perspective to what we normally do.

Stu, I'm intrigued, could you take a picture from 3-4 ft away[or whatever] so that we can see the whole thing as you'll carry it around? [does that make sense?]

Yes, of couse I can, hopefully tomorrow ( the sun appears to have gone down here...).

DD, the windows are quite simple ( as is most of what I do ).
The frames are brown card, cut undersize of the window with a central vertical piece. The glass is clear plastic with scribed lines, then just stuck behind the frame.
They have come out a lot better than I hoped.

As requested, a photo from a bit further away, showing the general layout of the diorama.



Clockwise, from the left :

The window frame - it moves vertically to allow me to adjust the mask of the scene.

The track - this is 7mm Peco, raised up to give the impression the road goes beneath. What's missing is a bridge parapet and fencing.

The Tudor building - 'Ye Old Witch & Fairy' public house

The shop - probably a pawn-brokers, so I can hang a 3-balls sign outside

The overbridge - this is in 4mm scale - there is no track but a loco / carriage / few wagons will be placed on here to give the scene a time frame.

The terrace of cottages (propped up by a paint tester). One of these will be a barbers, complete with pole.

So, from the window, this is the sort of image I'm able to create so far :

Wowser!  Now I see how the perspective has been 'forced' Thanks for posting, watching with interest.

Thanks for that link, Doug, but part of the inspiration for this idea is the RL Stephenson 'From a Railway Carriage' poem, the first line of which is
"Faster than faries, faster than witches"
