I made a short plank as a background for shooting stock and testing techniques

I must admit I like low angle close ups - nice one.

Thanks Matt. It's 18 inches by 10 1/4 with a 4 inch high stone wall around two sides. I usually hang a pale blue sheet some distance behind it when taking photos or I crop them before posting

Attached is a pretty much full lenght shot, although I did add a kitbashed paltelayers hut (it started as a concrete garage) to the right hand side.

Just goes to show that at 18 inches, anyone can really build a small plank / layout and it can turn out very impressive.

Thanks Toto & Matt,
It was a really enjoyable project and a good chance to practice scenic techniques. Ther are over a hundred individual weeds made from wire, tea leaves (fruit and ordinary) or short scatter fibres, indended to be rosebay willowherb.

It must have taken quite a long time Terry but its that attention to detail that gives such great results :worship:
I need to try and emulate the skills you and others show to try and get results anywhere near as good so its great to see photos and get the ' How To's '
Thanks again 
Matt

Small diaorama's are really good ways to practice, its cheaper / quicker / and more fun to knock off something that can be completed in a relatively short time, and you get to make all the mistakes on something disposable.
