I see! Not the matelots version

Fatter than a fairy's,
And flatter than a witches t..........

Some have made suggestions that I used this version to make the whole model a lot simpler....



This would indeed be flatter than a witches t....

This is a great project. Thank you for showing so much detail, apart from the last shot that is!

It is reminiscent of some of the dioramas I remember as a child in the Science Museum.

I seem to remember seeing something along similar lines at the NRM when I was about 12 - it was a model of an early train (possibly at Rainhill Trials), but made so the track / train dimminished into a virtual point at the back of the model.
Mine is nowhere near as complex as that was !

.....and I remember one that was viewed as through the gun-port of HMS Victory at Trafalgar, with steps at the front for little chaps [as I was then...] to stand on to get the right view.

It must have had some effect on me, about half my heap of books is RN Napoleonic Wars.......

Now that really is starting to look good Stu. :thumbs

I like the little touch of the Tarmac lorry resurfacing the road. ;-)

That's what I like about your posts - eloquent and verbose, yet succinct and to the point.:lol:

Thanks Peter. The lorry just happens to be one I 'borrowed' from my lad, to compare the size of the arch. I might add different vehicles depending on the era (which will be determined by the stock placed on the far 'track' over the arch bridge - clay hoods, GWR B-set, MkII coaches in blue & grey, etc.).

Thanks Reg.

 

Having been the very happy recipient of a rake of local wagons, some can now be seen traversing the overbridge...




Many thanks are due to Richard for these !

I admire your courage in doing this one, Stu.  The pressure on your weathering is going to be immense.  It's looking great thus far.  :thumbs

Do you have a plan for a photo to go behind the bridge?

Can you put the wagons on a belt so that they go around in a continuous fashion?

Really looking very good now.

Max, the 'plan' is to take the diorama out to a suitable location and photograph it with a real background. This depends largely on the weather.... If this fails, then a false (or normal) backscene will be added.
Hopefully I can get the weathering done in the next major modelling session ( i.e Friday night - the last day...).

DD, as it's only going to be a diorama for photographing, and will never be seen as an actual layout, I have of course already installed the conveyor belt and what you see in the picture is the local wagons portion, next up would be two B-set coaches, followed by the APT and Lion.

That's a good plan, Stu.  Oustide shooting gives fantastic results.  :thumbs
