Im starting a nice micro diorama build to show off my Andrew Barclay loco. I absolutely adore this loco and thought it should have a small scenic diorama.The diorama is 170mms x 60mms, the back of the diorama will have grass and foliage running along the full length. 
The track will be a standard straight by Hornby. Ballast will also be laid with weathering to both the track and ballast.
I have uploaded a picture of my work so far..

Hi Kev,

Good start to your scene, but you may want to remove that photo for one without your name and address on it, as an open forum can attract unwanted attention from the darker parts of the internet.

Stay safe,

Bill

Nice one Kev. A small thing ? That picture is showing your address through the plastic box lid. You might want to re do It with  the address blanked out and delete the original  bud   :thumbs
Cheers

Matt

Edit to add. Bill beat to it lol

That's a fairly hefty piece of timber for such a small loco Kev .................. :shock:

Like the others - looking forward to seeing how you progress. :thumbs

First of all thanks for the interest in my diorama.Yesterday I added the paper mache to form the rocky incline, once this dried I brushed on some filler which has dried nicely. This will be painted and weathered in due course. 
The track has been laid ready for painting and weathering and ballasting will be completed. But for now a little progress picture..

Very tidy work Kev.

You might like you delete the similar other photos from your gallery.

Stay safe and looking forward to your scenics and weathering.

Bill

Hi today I have been busy weathering the track with sleeper grime and rust colours. The rocky embankment has been painted and weathered, which I am pleased with the end result.Tomorrow the ballast will be laid and left to dry properly before weathering powders are added.
So for now a progress picture..

Looks good Kev.  When are you going to add the buildings? :lol:



Actually, in all seriousness, a small backscene would enhance the scene immensely.  It could be removable to fit it into the box.

Hi Terry thanks for the kind comments, I was just thinking about adding a small back scene. My next diorama build will have one or two lineside buildings. ;-)

I'm so glad you have painted that rocky bank  Kev, for some reason everytime I looked at the image in post 8 I started feeling peckish !  Then I figured out why  :lol:



I'm in two minds about a back scene but you could easily do one that is changeable so you can try different themes to see what works ? And even change it occasionally.

Looking forward to see where you go with it   :thumbs

Cheers

Matt
